The objective of this course is to meet the Federal OSHA Training requirements for employers who are required to adequately train all employees on health and safety. This course should be used as part of the employer's overall Back Safety Program.
This training should be combined with company specific training on the employer's Back Safety Program.
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.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
