Unit II Assignment
Instructions: In Unit I, you were asked to identify 10 training requirements for Carter’s Material Handling Equipment Manufacturing Company. This assignment involves reading the same case and then helping the organization by identifying additional training needs to meet EPA and non-regulatory requirements. This assignment provides you with an opportunity to demonstrate the following course learning outcome:
- Explain safety and health training requirements specified by standard setting organizations.
First, review the case about Carter’s Material Handling Equipment Manufacturing Company (see Unit I Assignment). Then, complete the table below by using the course textbook and the OSHA publication as a guide before saving all of your work to this document and submitting it in Blackboard for grading.
Instructions for completing the table below: You have been hired by Carter to develop an effective safety training program for his employees. Copy the 10 training requirements from the Unit I Assignment to the table below and then add five more training requirements. At least two must be from the EPA or joint OSHA/EPA requirements, and at least one must be from a non-regulatory source. If needed, add additional OSHA training requirements to bring the total to 15. Carter’s operation will be required to meet more than 15 OSHA standards; however, your job is to identify what you feel are the 15 most important. List the 15 requirements in the order in which they should be developed, and specify which department(s) should receive the training. Then, provide a brief justification (rationale) for each training requirement identified—why is it one of the most important?
Use the course textbook and the following publication as your guide: Training Requirements in OSHA Standards (OSHA Publication No. 2254-07R 2015).
