Depending on where you have worked, the following scenario may seem familiar to you. You are in the breakroom or standing next to your company bulletin board, and you notice a laminated poster outlining “OSHA Guidelines.” You may have glazed over it, but don’t be too quick to pass it off as unimportant. A part of the United States Department of Labor, OSHA, or, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is an entity that was created to assure safe and healthy working conditions by setting standards and providing training, education and other resources. Though OSHA itself does not address training or certification requirements, meeting several OSHA standards requires that employers train their employees on specific health and safety issues with regard to their jobs.
