Virginia-based Engle, Paxson & Hawthorne Insurance Services Educates Local Businesses on the Importance of Having OSHA Training due to Recent Worker Fatality Statistics

Nearly 12 workplace deaths occur every day. OSHA training is paramount to business success, reducing claims, and saving lives, in some cases. Local agents educate the local business community.

Leesburg, VA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), 239 workers have died on the job since October 2012. This is equivalent to almost 12 deaths every day. These alarming statistics must be changed, and the agents at Engle, Paxson & Hawthorne Insurance Services are committed to helping make sure this happens. Having business insurance with adequate workers compensation for protection is only the first step to take. The agency also wants to spread awareness of the importance of local businesses having OSHA training for their employees.

Safety on the job is an important consideration for all employers. There are different standards and regulations employers must follow depending on the industry they are involved in. However, these rules are put in place to aid in the success of any operation since this largely depends on the well being of the employees. Providing OSHA regulation training to employees can includes many benefits to a company. Here are some benefits EP&H Insurance Services wants all business owners to keep in mind when implementing this training strategy:

  •     As many as 40 workers at a time can enroll in the affordable OSHA training courses. This promotes a safe working environment so risks related to workplace injury can be reduced.
    Employers can demonstrate that they care about the safety of their workers. In addition, this keeps businesses compliant with national, state, and local safety regulations.     When a work environment is unsafe, this lowers the overall efficiency of the employees working there. Therefore, taking the necessary steps for training is a simple way to keep everyone protected.     A reduction in workers compensation insurance costs, medical bills, and fewer faulty machines could result by training all employees through OSHA.

If management creates an atmosphere of safety first, workers can then understand why it is necessary to receive OSHA training. From the top to the bottom of the company, EP&H Insurance Services believes everyone should work together and utilize this beneficial method of learning workplace safety regulations. This is paramount to the success of a company. Since the cost of workplace accidents can sometimes be extremely damaging financially on a business, it only makes sense to learn everything about OSHA safety training.
