A Modern Approach to OSHA Recordkeeping
OSHA’s mission is “to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.” Employers must comply with OSHA standards and ensure they are providing a safe workplace free of hazards. OSHA’s website, www.OSHA.gov offers many outreach, training and publication documents designed to assist employers in this process. Accessing OSHA’s Training and Publications pages also provides a wealth of information and help topics, such as OSHA’s Recordkeeping Handbook.
Employers are responsible for many aspects of OSHA standards ranging from eye wash stations to bloodborne pathogen training and posting proper signage to medical examinations. If an OSHA accident investigator ever passes through your doorway one of the first questions you may be asked is “Did you provide training for this employee to do their job?” While the answer is hopefully a resounding “Yes!” it would certainly be more effective to show the investigator those training records and certifications. AQT Solutions provides an Advanced Training Management System (ATMS) that efficiently delivers training and effectively stores all records and certifications. This is accomplished through a built in Learning Management System or LMS which delivers eLearning and a Training Management System or TMS that stores and maintains a running history for each individual. Easily upload external certifications or qualifications such as medical records or previous training in order to keep a concise record for every employee that can be accessed at any time. ATMS will help ensure easy access to training records, certifications and qualifications to assist your organization in more easily complying with OSHA standards.
