Learning management systems help employers stay in compliance with OSHA training requirements

Learning management systems can provide comprehensive training across your organization.

Safety is an issue that affects every business, but particularly those that require workers to operate machinery or handle chemicals and substances that may be harmful to their health. For companies in regulated industries, comprehensive training is an essential part of maintaining a compliant workplace. 

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has rules and regulations in place to help protect workers from injury on the job. Part of this preventative effort is requiring employers to provide training to educate workers on the correct way perform potentially hazardous tasks.

OSHA describes on its website that training is required to enable employees to perform work in a "safe and healthful manner." However, the effectiveness of these efforts will rely upon how well the instruction is passed on to employees. For this reason, OSHA has standards in place to help ensure training programs meet their intended effect. 

This includes making learning materials easy for employees that may speak different languages or have varying levels of comprehension. Compliance officers are tasked with ensuring that employers are meeting the required standards, including providing training materials in an understandable format. 

In the event that an OSHA compliance officer finds that an employer does not meet the required training standards, they may be found to be in violation of OSHA guidelines.

Companies looking for a comprehensive training solution can consider implementing a learning management system. With a learning management system, companies can increase the productivity of their workforce, while saving time and money. Learning management systems make it easy to certify, manage and track compliance with regulatory bodies such as OSHA and the FDA.
