The objectives of this Online Sexual Discrimination & Harassment Prevention Training are to provide supervisory personnel and the workforce with state-of-the-art training on the perils of sexual harassment and discrimination and to support employers in their efforts to comply with relevant State and Federal laws.
Striving for high standards of conduct with a comprehensive harassment prevention program is not only ethically sound, but crucial for success in any workplace.
When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job.
Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.
With regard to sexual harassment training, employees must be trained on the specific policies that apply to them.
The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
