A Kapnick client avoided over $10k in OSHA fines due to having tracked employee training progress prior to an incident. Read our case study to learn how:
A manufacturing client’s employee removed a guard on a piece of line equipment and amputated her finger. She called OSHA to complain about the safety of the plant. OSHA planned to fine the client $10,000 as a matter of course.
Fortunately, this client is a habitual user of our risk services center. Every Thursday when they receive the automated email, they require their employees to complete safety trainings and keep a completion log. Prior to this incident, the most recent training was on the importance of machinery guards. The client proved to OSHA that they had provided relevant training and the employee had signed off on completing it. All penalties were removed.
