Machine guarding ranks among the Top 10 of OSHA citations issued, possibly because the regulation can be confusing. Don't let confusion get in the way of compliance. The National Safety Council's Machine Guarding Compliance Training course will help you sort it out.

In just four hours, you'll learn practices and procedures that will keep you in compliance and, best of all, protect your employees.

OSHA Recordkeeping

Don't Repeat History -- Learn From It!

Effective recordkeeping is just as important as safety training and PPE when it comes to avoiding workplace injuries and illnesses. It gives you a solid foundation for a successful, well-managed safety program.

OSHA's Recordkeeping Standard ensures that companies track and report incidents, so they're less likely to repeat them. The National Safety Council's OSHA Recordkeeping Compliance course helps you learn to comply with the standard in your own facility. In just four hours, we'll walk you through the key elements of the standard, and show you how to make it part of an effective safety program.

The seminar covers:

 The purpose and scope of OSHA's 1904 Recordkeeping and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses

 Which industries and companies need to comply, and what types of incidents they need to report

 The required OSHA Recordkeeping forms and how to fill them out correctly

 Who's responsible for filling out the forms

 You'll learn how good recordkeeping can help you:

 Measure the effectiveness of your safety program

 Identify high-risk areas and procedures

 Get management to support safety initiatives

 Keep employees informed and motivate them to work more safely
