The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is one of the most powerful U.S federal agencies, charged with inspecting businesses and ensuring that the work force is a safe place to work. Richard Nixon signed the OSH Act into law in 1970. Since then, work-related deaths and injuries have been reduced by nearly 65 percent.
One of the important functions of OSHA is to approve training programs like ATS’s Rigging and Signalperson qualification and certification courses.
The most important certification you can have in the heavy equipment industry is certification in safety.
We at ATS feel that safety is a top priority on the job site because if worker’s can’t be protected from accidents and unsafe working conditions, then it will be difficult to fill important and essential jobs. Employers will find it harder to keep well qualified personnel on the machinery they need to complete important work.
The nation’s roads and bridges are built and maintained by heavy equipment operators. If working conditions are not safe, how long will it be before the national infrastructure crumbles?
OSHA fulfills a very important function. That’s why we’re proud to offer OSHA-compliant training that teaches the best and safest practices on the job site. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
