SHOP SAFETY SEMINAR
APRIL 24-25, 2012
Hosted by Nancy Hodges
IGNORANCE IS BLISS . . . if you can afford it.
How SAFE is your work place? How many Department of Labor (DOL), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and/or Occupational Safety and Hazard Agency (OSHA) regulations are you violating? How can you reduce your Workers Compensation Claims?
Ignorance of the law is no defense. In some states if an accident occurs in the work place and it is determined to be an OSHA violation, Workers' Compensation Insurance may not cover the accident. Some General Liability Insurance policies do not cover accidents that occur due to DOL, EPA, and OSHA violations. Can you afford to pay for your employees' injuries, loss of wages, disability or death and all the possible fines?
Accidents in the work place happen daily. Most accidents are preventable. ACOFAS is hosting a 2 day seminar in Milwaukee, WI Tuesday April 24th and Wednesday the 25th, 2012 and will cover the latest regulations regarding the shop environment and office postings.
- We will have handouts of the latest DOL required postings, and instructions for their display.
- There will be experts regarding EPA requirements on what are HazardousMaterial and the proper handling, storage, spills, containment, and disposal.
- Experts will present the most common employee injuries and what can be done to prevent them.
- Proper lifting and back supports.
- Experts will discuss the proper way to lift and support a vehicle while it is being repaired.
- Proper and safe handling of tires will be demonstrated
- Fire Safety and shop first aid, proper procedures in case of an accident.
- Extension Cord use requirements..
- Vehicle out of service and under repair Lock-out/tag-out requirements
- And many more.
These are very important topics for all of us in the Heavy Duty Truck Repair business. Our work is heavy and as such is that much more dangerous. We will attempt to have booklets regarding most of the topics to hand out.
Plan to be with us in Milwaukee. . . . unless you can afford not to.
