    The more sophistication humankind achieve through machines there are more chances of inflicting injuries. Think of a world free from road accidents, it will be also a world free from automobiles. Therefore, such a drastic reversal is impossible. The only way to stay safe is by following some standards. For example, traffic regulations to avoid accidents. The same principle is applicable for workplaces. The induction of highly complex and heavy machineries into the workplace has called for the implementation of some standards. This is the exact reason why the US Congress has set a standard to follow so as to avert workplace accidents. Occupational Health and Safety Act or osha   is a set of standards thus created by the US congress to maintain workplace safety.

    According to OSHA standards, the employer has many responsibilities to fulfil for his employees with regard to their health and safety. The employees have the right to work on conditions that does not pose threat to their lives. The employees working in oil and gas industries must be informed about the chemical and other health hazards that are hidden in their workplace. If the employers fail to follow the norms set by OSHA, the law will take its course on them.

    The OSHA Training Institutes are a network of organizations authorized by OSHA to deliver occupational safety and health training to private sector employees, supervisors, and employers. Expert trainers who have immense experience in workplace health and safety handle OSHA courses.

    What a bizarre intro.

    OSHA standards currently do not apply during the inspection process; which is what the majority of this website's members do.

    Oh boy, here we go............

    Let me guess NevaTaylor, these OSHA standards and Occupational Health Training will be provided by.....the OSHA Training Institute? Which you just so happen to be a part of.

    First mistake is that you have essentially targeted the wrong audience. The lion's share of Independent claims adjusters are just that...independent. Not an employee. 

    We (CAT adjusters) inspect damaged unstable homes after a catastrophe. Most OSHA standards would indicate that the home be repaired and therefore stable before we go in. Hmm, quite the conundrum.

    Lastly, why would ANY company that is remotely reputable stoop to FREE advertising in someone else's FORUM? You being a GUEST on this site means you should at the very least strive to not violate the terms of use on your first day
