Training Services

Training is a valuable tool in business today. Besides being a requirement, employers are finding that training increases morale, productivity and profits. Many standards promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) explicitly require employees to be trained in the safety and health aspects of their job. Other OSHA standards make it the employer's responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are "certified", "competent" or "qualified" - meaning that they have had special previous training in or out of the workplace. Many researchers conclude that those who are new on the job have a higher rate of accidents and injuries than more experienced workers.
