In response to demand from companies in a wide range of industries, National PEO recently announced it has begun offering OSHA Outreach safety training classes. Already known for providing a wide range of professional services to employers, including assisting companies operating in Arizona Everify their employees (as per the Arizona Legal Workers Act), National PEO offers 23 safety training classes based on Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations.
Courses currently available are: OSHA General Industry, OSHA Construction Industry, Hearing Conservation, Hazard Communication, Forklift Training and Certification, Lockout/Tag Out, Heat Stress (Hyperthermia), Cold Illness (Hypothermia), Confined Space Entry, Respirator Training, Back Safety, Blood Borne Pathogens, Fire Safety and Prevention, Electrical Safety, Fall Protection, Ladder Safety, OSHA Record Keeping, Scaffold Training, Eye Safety and Face Protection, Slip Trip and Fall Protection, Basic First Aid, CPR/AED Training and Excavation Safety. While some classes are as short as 30 minutes long, more comprehensive courses (such as OSHA General Industry) range from 10 to 30 hours in duration. To make training as convenient as possible, employees may attend classes at National PEO offices, or courses can be conducted onsite.
In a competitive business environment, Human Resources functions are often impacted, leaving many companies short of the knowledge and personnel required to keep up with legislative and regulatory requirements. A good example is the Arizona Legal Workers Act, legislation that requires companies in that state to electronically verify (or E-Verify) eligibility of their workers. Noncompliance can lead to suspension or even loss of the company’s business license. National PEO quickly offered an Arizona Everify program that processes employees on behalf of the company, audits I-9s and the employee filing system as well as updating management on any changes to federal or state laws as they concern employees and immigration.
