J. J. Keller Introduces Free Safety & Compliance Event Especially for Educational Institutions
Complimentary webcast will help educational staff understand their regulatory risks and responsibilities
Like any employer, educational institutions are required to follow specific safety and regulatory requirements. However, it’s not uncommon for personnel at these institutions to be unaware of the numerous regulations that apply to them. Not knowing and not complying can result in faculty or student injuries, citations, increased insurance costs, and damage to the institution’s reputation.
To help educational institutions better understand their regulatory risks and responsibilities, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is presenting a free webcast, Navigating OSHA and DOT Regulations in Educational Institutions: Safety in Education Relies on Worker and Transportation Compliance.
Presented by J. J. Keller subject-matter experts Cindy Pauley, EHS Editor, and Mark Schedler, Sr. Transportation Editor, and taking place on Thursday, November 9, at 1:00 PM CST, this one-hour event will cover:
Major federal OSHA compliance topics for education, including emergency preparedness, medical services and first aid, chemical/hazard communication, injury/illness recordkeeping, workplace violence, and maintenance and janitorial safety.
Major federal DOT compliance topics for education, including fleet safety regulation applicability, non-CDL and CDL driver qualification, vehicle inspections, hours of service, and driver training.
Regulatory enforcement and the risks of non-compliance.
According to Schedler, “Many schools and colleges don’t realize that if they use vans or buses to transport students or employees across state or international borders, they need to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). And even if they don’t cross any borders, there’s a good chance their state still enforces those FMCSRs or adopts the safety regulations.”
“There are also many hazards lurking in the halls,” added Pauley. “With everything from hazardous chemicals to ventilation, slip hazards, janitorial and maintenance equipment, and more, all of these hazards must be identified to determine which OSHA standards apply and how to stay compliant. This can be especially problematic at educational institutions where the person in charge of safety and compliance is wearing multiple hats and may not be an expert in that area.”
J.J. Keller, which has been providing regulatory guidance to employers across multiple industries for 70 years, is a widely-trusted name in safety and compliance, and this is their first webcast designed especially for staff at educational institutions.
