Under OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Act) standards, an employer is responsible for the health and safety of its employees in the workplace. Training of employees on rack safety can significantly lower the number of incidents and educate workers on proper course of action when safety issues do come up. Training your workforce on safety is one of the best investments your company can make to provide a safer work environment and reduce associated liability risks.
