Aug 13, 2015New safety-training website made 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.”
