In addition to the medical evaluation, all employees complete an OSHA outreach 10-hour safety training course. The employee learns how to correctly identify and label various chemical warnings, read Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs), and complete employee education and training. All of these components culminate in safety certification. This safety certification program is extensive and thorough, ensuring that the employee is able to use all equipment and chemicals correctly, according to both OSHA and company standards.
But it must be noted that simply undergoing a safety certification program is not enough. The employee must be able to process and repeat the correct safety procedures back to the supervisor. Furthermore, all employees are periodically assessed on their correct use and knowledge of safety procedures.
