West Coast Lumber and Building Material Association Partners with Certified Safety Training
The West Coast Lumber & Building Material Association is pleased to announce an endorsement of and member access to on-line safety training with Certified Safety Training (CST) of Princeton NJ. Company president Mark Harrison brings more than 25 years of safety training experience backed by certified safety professionals. He also has more than ten years in the high-tech sector delivering first rate customer experiences.
“This newest program for WCLBMA members came after much discussion by the board of directors, with agreement that on-line delivery of safety training is augmenting and even replacing classroom or job site training, “said WCLBMA Executive Director Ken Dunham. “We were looking for a program that is comprehensive, affordable and easily accessed by members.”
He also noted that the reporting and course content is OSHA compliant and verified by Certified Safety Professionals. Additionally, the content will be modified as needed to comply with state OSHA programs, such as Cal OSHA, to ensure state level compliance.
Nearly 30 states have safety requirements that expand on or modify the federal Occupational Safety and Health laws. Most are usually more stringent than the federal program.
“We make sure that your employees have exactly what they need to perform their most productive and safest work, and that you have exactly what you need for OSHA,” said Certified Safety Training (CST) President Mark Harrison.
“We handle all of a company’s training, deliver customized reports, and make sure members and employees are fully complied with OSHA's standards. In the past twenty-five years, our course library has been developed and refined to meet the needs of the lumber and sawmill industry in the northeastern U.S. We are thrilled to be partnering with WCLBMA and bringing their members additional value on behalf of the Association,” he added.
