The OSH Training Framework

The main goal of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) is to prevent the occurrence of accidents and illnesses in the workplace. Factors contributing to these accidents and illnesses are health and safety hazards which can be addressed with the guidance of OSH Laws and Standards as well as OSH Fundamentals.

Figure 1. presents that accidents and illnesses are 98 percent preventable (Heinrich, n.d.), potential workplace accidents/illnesses can be avoided through Hazard Identification (Job Hazard Analysis, Safety Inspection, Work Environment Measurement (WEM), Medical screening & surveillance), Risk Assessment, and Risk Control (Elimination, Substitution, Engineering, Administrative, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)—collectively referred to as HIRADC.

If accidents/illnesses do happen (with 2 percent chance), there are means to effectively manage and mitigate its impact. This OSH Course covers topics such as Workplace Emergency Preparedness, Employee Compensation and Accident Investigation and Reporting.

In institutionalizing safe workplace practices and conditions, the abovementioned strategies can be designed into a formal plan of action to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses—the OSH Program. Following the safety and health principles and guidelines found in the program, there will be a significant improvement in the company’s compliance with laws and regulations and reduction of costs, including significant reductions in workers’ compensation premiums.

Tool box Meeting, for that is the best way to constantly distribute the info. according to OSH

I like the pages info. are short and concise that will encourage others even who are not fun of reading to read and understand. I just dislike if there is error question, if i am right in that error, but its just little thing. Nice experience...

A great way of learning.

I really love the way this course arranged, very understandable and I can take the lessons anytime I want. It's very convenient to learn any time and acquire such certificate as well while working at my current job. My experiences in completing each lessons are sometimes challenging because some terms has almost the same meaning. This knowledge and new terms I acquired will be useful for me soon

Self-paced training

Like the part that this training is self-paced. I usually have a hard time absorbing everything in seminars because I tend to get distracted or bored. This method of training helped me because whenever I get distracted, I can stop and regroup myself first.
