General Industry Safety Training

General industry safety training is crucial to keeping your employees safe at your workplace.

29 CFR 1910 OSHA Requirements

29 CFR 1910 OSHA Requirements

OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910 is a collection of general industry standards that apply to many organizations across various industries. In OSHA terminology, “general industry” refers to every industry except those that fall under the maritime, construction or agricultural sectors. OSHA regulates those that fall under the general industry category with directives, standard interpretations and standards. Following these requirements helps companies increase their safety and meet governmental regulations.

With the numerous OSHA regulations governing organizations in general industry, many companies invest in safety training courses for their staff. These courses allow employees to gain specialist certificates in essential safety areas to ensure your company complies with regulations and has a safe workplace.
