Employee safety is a vital concern. Monthly safety meetings provide safety education and raise safety awareness. It prevents injuries. Certain training is mandated by Cal OSHA. Safety meetings ensure personnel receive that required training. All monthly safety training sessions will need to be documented, including topic, date, names of participating employees, and name of trainer. (However, they are not a substitute for specialized required training, such as forklift safety.) The programs cover a wide range of topics.
