This 10 Hour General Industry Training course is designed for all employees. Employees who work in trades such as warehouses, manufacturing plans, service industries, offices, medical offices and many other industries.

OSHA regulations require all employers to provide hazard awareness training. Fines for not training employees can be more than a small or middle size business can handle. When OSHA shows up for an inspection, it will be to late. Most citations are due to records and training. Call us to help you with General Industry Training that can help you be compliant.
