Defensive Driving Training for Noncommercial Motorists
Motor vehicle accidents are the most common form of death of all workplace fatalities, and vehicle accidents, injuries, and fatalities outside of work are also on the rise due to all different kinds of distracted driving and other hazards. Whether you drive on the job or just commute to work, it’s important that you stay on your toes and drive defensively to keep yourself—and other drivers and pedestrians—safe. During this training session, we’re going to talk about some techniques that will help you avoid driving accidents and injuries.
Disaster Planning—What Employees Need to Know
Fires are the most common type of workplace emergency. The National Fire Protection Association reports that a fire department somewhere in America responds to a fire every 16 seconds. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that fires cause as many as 10,000 employee injuries and 200 employee deaths every year. In addition, the U.S. Fire Administration says that losses from industrial fires cost U.S. businesses over $4 billion a year in property losses and more than $8 billion in business interruption costs. Explosions resulting from fires, bombs, or other causes can claim many lives, leave many more badly injured, and destroy property. Natural disasters such as earthquakes and tornadoes can strike with little or no warning. Hurricanes and floods may be forecast, but effective emergency action in these situations may nevertheless be required. Toxic chemical releases can require emergency response within the workplace and in the surrounding community. Workplace violence can erupt at any time in any department. We must be prepared to respond quickly and appropriately in these dangerous and sometimes life-threatening situations. Since the Oklahoma bombing, the events of September 11, 2001, and subsequent terrorist activity around the world, it has become clear to all Americans that we must be prepared to face the possibility of terrorist attacks in the workplace at any time.

Forklift Operator Safety
This online forklift safety training course will help teach forklift operators the characteristics of a forklift, including differences from driving a car, controls and instruments, motor operation, including steering and other instructions, warnings, and precautions. Reckless driving presents a high risk with these heavy, delicately balanced vehicles. An improperly loaded or operated forklift can tip over, fall off a loading dock, drop a load, or collide with an object or person. That’s why OSHA’s regulation on powered industrial trucks (29 CFR 1910.178) includes more than just requirements for the equipment. It also requires that the trucks be operated only by trained, authorized drivers. Even the best-trained drivers, however, may get careless. Operators need reminders of forklift safety basics so they don’t put themselves—or anyone else—at risk.
