Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) August 7, 2009
In this current economy, local contractors, facing potential layoffs due to a reduction of
available work, are looking for ways to cut costs. At the same time, they face OSHA scrutiny regarding jobsite safety and possible
fines. Friedman Associates offers a free 10 Hour OSHA Certification Seminar to help alleviate this financial concern.
"The seminar is held over two consecutive days, 5 hours each day, in our state of the art facility at our office", says Neil Friedman,
owner of Friedman Associates, a local 33 year old independent insurance agency specializing in assisting contractors with their
employee benefit and business insurance planning and implementation. "We provide this seminar, taught by certified OSHA
instructors, free of charge as a public service to the local construction community. This seminar has saved companies hundreds of
dollars in enrollment fees as well as helping to avoid costly fines from OSHA due to jobsite safety violations. We are very happy to be
able to do this for the construction community."
Participants in the seminar will be able to write and maintain an effective safety program, train employees to adopt the safety program,
understand the relationship between insurance premiums and jobsite safety, anticipate what to expect from an OSHA inspection
(including their rights) and learn how to comply with OSHA standards for hand tools, electrical, personal protective equipment (PPE),
and excavations, thereby avoiding fines.
Friedman says this program for construction site safety challenges the contractor to step up their safety strategy. "With this seminar,
you will get the tools to work safely, productively, and profitably."
Successful attendees will receive certified OSHA contractor cards from Federal OSHA and a Construction Industry Regulations
Manual. "If you wish to attend our next seminar", adds Friedman, "it is best to sign up early as our previous seminars have filled up
