Managing a Business

Tuesday, October 04, 2016 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
The LSBDC at ULM will be celebrating Manufacturer's Week 2016 by offering an overview of OSHA's (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations and requirements. Under the OSH Act, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. OSHA's mission is to assure safe and healthful workplaces by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards. Employers must also comply with the General Duty Clause of the OSH Act, which requires employers to keep their workplace free of serious recognized hazards. This class would benefit any company that needs the first steps in becoming OSHA certified, looking for additional information on OSHA regulations, or needs a representative to help with the certification process.
