Like other employers, educational institutions are required to follow specific safety and regulatory requirements. However, it’s not uncommon for personnel at these institutions to be unaware of the numerous regulations that apply to them. Not knowing and not complying can result in faculty or student injuries, citations, increased insurance costs, and damage to the institution’s reputation.
To help educational institutions better understand their regulatory risks and responsibilities, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is presenting a free webcast, Navigating OSHA and DOT Regulations in Educational Institutions: Safety in Education Relies on Worker and Transportation Compliance.
Presented by J. J. Keller subject-matter experts Cindy Pauley, EHS Editor, and Mark Schedler, Sr. Transportation Editor, and taking place on Thursday, November 9, at 1:00 PM CST, this one-hour event will cover:
• Major federal OSHA compliance topics for education, including emergency preparedness, medical services and first aid, chemical/hazard communication, injury/illness recordkeeping, workplace violence, and maintenance and janitorial safety.
• Major federal DOT compliance topics for education, including fleet safety regulation applicability, non-CDL and CDL driver qualification, vehicle inspections, hours of service, and driver training.
• Regulatory enforcement and the risks of non-compliance.
