We’ve Redone Our Florida OSHA Training Page
Florida OSHA Safety Training follows statewide suggestions for risk management. Coursesthat are provided are available through online, computer-based training and on-site courses. Florida is not a State Plan state, so employers operate under the federal guidelines established under the OSH Act of 1970. The OSHA General Duty Clause mandates that all companies provide a safe environment for their workers.
The Florida Department of Health does oversea all surveillance and compliance of state and federal regulations. The Occupational Health and Safety Program (OHSP) uses it’s endeavors to monitor workplace related injuries and illnesses, then use that information to create new guidelines that will help prevent those risks to the State’s workforce.
Many large companies have their own OSHA training requirements. Our Florida training page has a brief description now on the situation for work site training in Florida, a contact form for those of you interested in our trainers coming to your place of business, and links to a Florida OSHA resources page that will give you OSHA office location in the Sunshine State.
It’s part of our ongoing web development project, which aims to provide customized resources for users in each state (eventually).
If you’re an employer or safety trainer in Florida and you see where we could make our page more complete, please leave a comment here and we’ll get right on it.
