The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association is hosting a free webinar on Thursday focused on a business function the association is concerned that operators might overlook or not understand completely — maintaining compliance with federal mandates from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
In this webinar, hosted by NIADA and presented by ComplyNet, operators will participate in “crash course” on how to complete a variety of tasks, including:
— Records that must be kept
— How to fill out OSHA forms properly
— When completed forms must be posted and provided to OSHA
— When specific incidents must be reported to OSHA
— Fines and penalties that can be levied for failing to fulfill these obligations
NIADA mentioned the presenters also will discuss the differences between repeat violations, willful violations, serious violations, and other-than-serious violations as well as review recent cases in which OSHA has initiated criminal proceedings against offenders.
The experts will also discuss the importance of analyzing injuries and near misses, and how this exercise can lead to fewer injuries and illnesses, greater productivity and increased savings.
“You can't afford to miss this opportunity to learn how this applies to you,” NIADA said.
The free webinar begins at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday. Registration for the session can be completed here.
