Safety and health administration is very important to small business. Experts estimate that workplace injuries and illnesses cost U.S. businesses more than $125 billion annually. Effective job safety and health programs not only help reduce worker injuries and illnesses, but also save employers money in the long run. This course is based entirely on the OSHA Small Business Handbook published by the U.S. Department of Labor. This handbook helps small business employers meet the legal requirements imposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, and achieve an in-compliance status before an OSHA inspection. Although the guidelines are technically written for small businesses, the basic principles of establishing a reliable safety and health program described in this publication can be applied to businesses on other scales as well. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
