Annual Safety Recertification Training for Safety Committees; Hazard Communication Basic Compliance—the Pennsylvania Chamber’s OSHA & Workplace Safety Roundtable presents two topics back by popular demand.

The Annual Safety Recertification Training for Safety Committees is the yearly required training of companies that have their safety committees certified with the Health and Safety Division of the PA Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.  Presented by a Health & Safety Training Specialist from the Bureau, this is the training required to receive the 5 percent discount on annual workers’ compensation insurance premiums. 

And Hazard Communication Basic Compliance presents top instruction on the basics of Hazcom compliance—the second leading cause of failures and fines during OSHA inspections according to the Harrisburg Area OSHA’s Office, and one of our most requested topics.

A PA Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Health & Safety Training Specialist, OSHA Compliance Assistance Specialist, and top workplace safety field advisor will walk you through what you need to know, explain details and offer practical, sound advice for your company’s safety program:

  • Annual Safety Recertification Training for Safety Committees—we will review the three areas required in the annual training:  Safety Committee Dynamics, Hazard Identification and Accident Investigation.  Those companies with safety committees certified with the PA Bureau of Workers’ Compensation will meet the mandatory annual training requirement and receive a certificate of completion from the Bureau.  This is also an excellent refresher for any company with an in-house safety committee, even if they are not certified.
  • Steps to an Effective Hazard Communication Program—a mandatory law that is extremely important to companies, we will cover preparing and implementing the written program, evaluating the chemical hazards being handled, preparing labels and safety data sheets, which employees need to be trained and how often, and how to evaluate your program for improvements.
  • The OSHA Update—presented by the Harrisburg Area OSHA Office, this is always a popular segment at our OSHA & Workplace Safety events.
