Blended Training and What You Need to Know to Stay OSHA Compliant

Are you sure your method of employee training meets compliance requirements?

 

There are more than 100 OSHA rules that require you to train workers in safe work practices. While most of the rules leave it up to the employer to decide the best way to train workers, OSHA inspectors can and do issue fines if the training is not compliant. Without considerable research or experience, it is difficult to know if your method of training is compliant.

 

It is crucial that you know the answers to questions like:

 

  • Can you use online training by itself, or do you need to use a blended approach with hands-on training?
  • Do you need to cover site-specific information?
  • Do the answers to those questions vary depending on the rule involved?
  • Do you need to use an OSHA-certified or -approved training method or vendor?
  • Can you just complete OSHA 10 or 30 to satisfy the training requirements in OSHA rules?

 

This webinar will provide you the answers you need by:

 

  • Explaining when and how training must be provided to employees;
  • Clarifying under what conditions OSHA allows online training and when blended training is required;
  • Resolving the confusion about whether OSHA certifies training courses and if the OSHA-authorized 10- and 30- hour applies to OSHA rules;
  • Describing the types of training delivery methods allowed by OSHA;
  • Providing tips on how to deliver effective safety training;
  • And much more!

 

 

The webinar will take place on Thursday, October 21 from 3:00 PM - 3:20 PM EDT.
