Workplace safety is very important and needs to be properly taught by a certified trainer with up to date knowledge of OSHA rules, regulations and best practices. Utah Occupational Safety and Health has always been committed to creating a safe and healthy workplace for every worker in the state of Utah. The Utah Labor Commission has held authority over USHA since 1985 when it was granted official approval to operate their own occupational safety and health programs. Utah has had standards for safety to protect against the most important threats to a worker’s safety since 1950, two decades before the creation of OSHA.
Safety training in the workplace is required to maintain a safe working environment for employees. Examples of required OSHA safety courses offered by Shield-Safety are:
Personal Protection Equipment
Lockout / Tagout Hazardous Energy
Shield-Safety has over 20 years of experience training individuals, employees and medical responders for commercial, industrial, business, residential, municipal and community needs. We offer a 2 year certification class through The American Heart Association and American Red Cross for CPR, AED & Choking. Our onsite training classes are engaging, educational and fun for employees to participate in, they are also great for team building and employee morale.
The proper use of safety equipment and products can not be understated. A great example of a safety product that an employee needs to be trained on is a fire extinguisher. They need to know where they are located in case of an emergency and how to use it to extinguish different types of fires safely. Personal protective equipment needs to be donned correctly to get the protection it was designed to provide. Face masks with an improper seal can allow airflow to enter through the side of the mask. Gloves should be the correct size and fit to avoid loose material that could cause snagging and catching on machinery. Cuts and scrapes should be cleaned and dressed correctly to avoid exposure and infections. There are so many reasons to get your employees trained on the use of safety and injury products. Shield-Safety has revolutionized workplace safety and health with their products and professional training courses. We have customized safety programs, care centers, and safety products to meet today’s standards required by OSHA and USHA.
