CCH Offers New OSHA “Train-the-Trainer” Materials for General Industry, Construction, Federal Agencies

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 16, 2005) – Three new training tools from CCH INCORPORATED, a leading supplier of workplace safety information, provide definite course materials for “train-the-trainer” courses in general industry, the construction industry and federal agencies.

Available in print and on CD-ROM, these “What Every Supervisor Should Know” programs are designed for use by the OSHA Training Institute Education Centers and safety professionals to allow them to provide managers, supervisors and safety personnel with the tools and knowledge needed to ensure a safe and healthy workplace.

Developed by recognized authority Joe Teeples, the programs outline steps for organizations to comply with OSHA’s regulations in an easy-to-use manner, with numerous quizzes and a helpful, “how to” format.

General Industry Provides Overview, Detailed Guidance

What Every Supervisor Must Know about OSHA—General Industry enhances supervisor, manager and employee understanding of OSHA regulations with material presented in an easy-to-use format. It also provides:

  • An overview of OSHA, how it works, how to read the regulations, penalties;
  • Steps for how to handle an OSHA inspection; and
  • Training tips to make presentations sizzle.

The General Industry book delivers detailed guidance — in the form of text, diagrams and photographs — on compliance and safety issues such as:

Hazard Communication

The book includes an overview of OSHA, how the agency works, how to read the regulations, penalties as well as guidance on compliance issues.

Focus on Federal Agencies

While OSHA cannot levy fines and penalties against federal agencies, the hidden costs of lost productivity, workers compensation expense and legal liabilities for federal managers make accident reduction a prime concern. What Every Supervisor Must Know about OSHA Federal provides managers, supervisors and safety personnel in Federal offices with the tools and knowledge needed to ensure a safe and healthy workplace — knowledge which OSHA mandates.

What Every Supervisor Must Know about OSHA Federal outlines steps for organizations to comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1960 regulation for Federal Supervisors and Safety Committees, all in an easy-to-use, “how-to” format. The book explains OSHA rules and regulations and also provides a basis for accident prevention efforts. This allows federal organizations to use a risk management approach to evaluate their facilities and safeguard their workers.

The training program discusses:

  • An overview of OSHA, how it works, how to read the regulations, penalties;
  • How to handle an OSHA inspection;
  • An overview of risk management;
  • Federal Employees Compensation Act; and
  • 29 CFR 1960 — the OSHA regulation for Federal Agencies

It also provides detailed guidance — in the form of text, diagrams and photographs — on compliance and safety issues such as:

Hazard Communication

Industrial Hygiene

Forklifts and Material Handling

Bloodborne Pathogens

Walking and Working Surfaces

Fire and Egress

Safety Committees

Confined Space Entry

Personal Protective Equipment

Machine Guarding
