Occupational Safety

The early foils introduce occupational safety itself and explore some basic issues. Occupational safety training is a basic requirement of standards, regulation and legislation. It cannot be overlooked and it cannot be short cut.

The training must be wide in scope, but focused on the key areas. It should also embrace all personnel within the organization – not just a selected few.

But where to start? Where can you get a handle on the issues and where can you find a resource to target at the rest of the organization?

The answer is… here!
