Bookmark and Share

It won't be business as usual for the Bus Industry Safety Council when the group meets in Dulles, VA on June 11th and 12th this year. Instead of participating in their normal committee meetings, BISC members, who are the leading safety and security experts in the bus industry, will receive 10 hours of workplace safety and health training so that they can help keep their companies in compliance with federal regulations.

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has ramped up it enforcement and spot inspection programs in recent years. Companies that have been found violating workplace safety and health standards the threat of crippling fines. (Recent fines have exceeded $1,000,000 per company)

The training that BISC members will receive is known as the OSHA 10. It will cover the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The ultimate goal of the training is to help BISC members provide their employees with a safer workplace environment by staying in compliance with OSHA standards.

"I hope all of our members will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity," said BISC Executive Director Norm Littler. "Every person who attends this two-day training will bring home some valuable knowledge that could potentially save their company thousands if not millions of dollars. And we're providing this all free of charge."
