OSHA Compliance & Training

OSHA regulations require both “competent” and “qualified” personnel to identify workplace hazards and install corrective measures, and the terms aren’t as interchangeable as they seem. Here’s what you need to know.

The Certified Safety Professional and Master Safety Professional designations both demonstrate a person’s high level of expertise and dedication to safety best practices. Take a look at these two certifications for the manufacturing industry.

Fines for failing to protect workers from on-the-job falls surged 25 percent to $36.2 million in 2022. The regulation requiring fall protection topped the U.S. Occupational
Safety and Health Administration’s list of most-violated rules for the 12th straight year.
