Aug 13, 2015New safety-training website tailored for agriculture
Farm and other agribusiness operations looking for convenient, cost-effective ways to improve workplace safety and meet compliance requirements under the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) have a new option available online.
Good Day’s Work is a web-based business that combines an expanding library of employee safety-training videos (available in English and Spanish) with a records-keeping and reporting tool any agribusiness can use to maintain a sound workplace-safety program, with or without a safety specialist on staff.
“Studies show that every dollar invested in a safety program returns four to six dollars in reduced insurance premiums, medical expenses and labor downtime,” says Don Tyler, the president and co-founder of Good Day’s Work. “And that’s before the potential cost of OSHA fines even enters the equation.”
Once a business sets up an account inside the Good Day’s Work platform, that business’ account administrator can instantly register employees for classes, track all training activity, access management-level compliance information, submit OSHA accident reports, gather necessary documentation in the event of an OSHA inspection, and conduct a wide range of other safety-program management activities — all from the convenience of any Web-enabled device, including mobile applications.
“We believe that, through our efforts, we can be instrumental in moving agriculture from the number-one spot on OSHA’s ‘Most Dangerous Industries’ list, to completely out of the top ten,”Tyler said. “We’re really looking forward to working with our customers and peers toward that end.”
