New Webinar - Construction Emergency Action Plans
March 1, 2017, 10:00 AM EST
Instructor: Mark Houghton
The basis of a good emergency plan is to work actively to prevent work place accidents. Organizations that have well-functioning safety and health programs react better and with greater efficiency in an emergency. A good safety and health program involves all employees by having them watch for and report hazards, helping to enforce safe working rules and to be involved in planning for an emergency if and when it occurs.
Our mission is to connect the Commonwealth of Kentucky's workforce to a cost-free and enriching source for workplace safety and health training. All training, whether a class or webinar, is presented by KYOSH Education and Training staff.
