2:00 PM Eastern | 1:00 PM Central | 11:00 AM Pacific
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mission is to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. That’s why the organization monitors and documents violations against its standards through regional offices nationwide.
To help WERC members become more educated about OSHA requirements as they pertain to warehouse and dock safety, Candra Jefferson, OSHA Compliance Assistance Specialist, will present an overview of the top 10 violations documented in 2018. Her findings, culled from Illinois’ OSHA area offices, are representative of other areas nationwide.
Webinar participants will learn ways to identify and mitigate areas of concern within their operations, as well as takeaway more detail about the OSHA standards applicable to each violation. The OSHA Alliance Program’s structure and mandates will also be explained. Additionally, attendees are invited to participate in a general discussion of hot topic safety issues they’d like to see covered in future webinars.
The webinar is part of the formal, two-year alliance formed by OSHA and the Chicagoland WERCouncil. The two organizations are working together to provide training, outreach and education to WERC members and industry stakeholders on reducing and preventing exposure to common safety and health hazards found in our industry. Among the areas of focus are material handling, forklifts, loading docks, conveyors, machine guarding, machine safety procedures and struck-by hazards.
