OSHA Training


Chances are, even if you do not use a written safety program prepared by a professional safety consultant, you still spend more on compliance and safety than you think you spend. The following items are compliance and safety related:

  1. Waste Disposal Fees
  2. Fire Extinguishers
  3. Exit Markers and Signage
  4. Personal Protective Equipment
  5. Quick Drench Shower and Emergency Eye Wash Station
  6. Training Employees (initial training and annual renewal training)
  7. Training Materials
  8. Administration (documenting the training and other areas)
  9. Hepatitis B Vaccinations
  10. Safe Sharps
  11. Meeting Electric and Building Codes

While these expenses are considerable, they contain an important omission. Employers also have to bear the costs for occupational injuries incurred by their employees. Sometimes this is hidden through workers compensation and other insurance, but it is still a cost. The insurance company is a middle man in this instance. They may spread your costs out over several years, but in the end, it is employers who pay for on-the-job injuries.
