Here at First Choice, we pride ourselves on the service we provide to both our employees, but to our customers as well! We are constantly looking for new ways to give back and make the lives easier for everyone! Not only that, we also are looking for ways to promote a positive, safe work environment.
This past week, we held our first ever OSHA 10 Hour Course. This event was held over the course of two days at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, NY. We had a trainer from Gallagher Basset who presented on a variety of topics that apply to multiple industries! Most importantly, we had a fantastic turnout! We had 18 different customers that came out to train, and over 20 people that all went through the course! These are local businesses that took the time out of their normal work schedule to be educated on safety and hazards within the workplace. That's a group of dedicated individuals!
This course went through important topics such as:
- Blood-Borne Pathogens
- Emergency Action Plans
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Noise Exposure
- Machine Guarding
- Material Handling
- Hazard Communication
Being educated in the safety standards of OSHA, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, can not only keep your workers safe, but can keep your costs down. That way, when OSHA comes-a-knockin', you are ready.
We hope to continue to host these very important safety classes to keep both our customers, and our employees educated on safety, as well as hazards that can be found in the everyday workplace. It is our focus to work together with our customers to promote a safe working environment for all of our employees.
