Three Ways to Keep Your Employees Safe on the Job

As the country continues to deal with the effects of the pandemic, it’s more important than ever to make sure you and your employees are following OSHA safety guidelines. Between Oct. 1, 2019 and Sept. 30, 2020, OSHA conducted 21,674 inspections in response to worker complaints, injuries and fatalities, and referrals impacted by the coronavirus. 

If you think your business is too small for OSHA to bother with you, think again. Following proper safety guidelines, no matter how trivial they may seem, are essential to keeping your business alive.

One way to be prepared for any scheduled or unexpected OSHA inspections is by using our company-wide, online safety training solutions.

Plumbers Training Institute offers three safety training solutions, including:

  • OSHA-Authorized Outreach Training Programs offered by the University of South Florida
  • A Complete Safety Compliance Suite Course Package
  • Individual Safety Professional Development Courses

OSHA Outreach Courses

OSHA Outreach is a voluntary training program that acts as the principal method used to train workers in the essentials of occupational safety and health in both the Construction and General Industry work sites. We offer both the 10 and 30 hour versions of these courses. The 10 hour program is catered toward entry level workers, and the 30 hour program expands upon topics presented in the 10 hour version for management-level workers.

Safety Professional Development Courses

Or, if you’d rather help your employees train in a specific area, we also offer individual safety professional development courses. The courses range from three hours to just 30 minutes, so finishing training doesn’t turn into a whole day affair!

  • Confined Spaces
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Personal Protective Equipment

Why Use Online Training? 

Online training courses offer two major benefits for your business: they save you time and they save you money. 

Instead of taking up a half (or even a whole) day of work sending your employees to in-person classes, online courses give your crew the flexibility they need to finish their training without getting behind on any projects. 

Since our courses work on any device with an internet connection, your employees can finish a course no matter where they are.

Here’s a preview of what our video courses are like. At the end of each lesson, we also include quizzes to make sure your employees stay engaged and retain the information.
