WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Mar. 9, 2017 – ClickSafety, the leading provider of online safety and health training for the construction, general and mining industries, has updated and expanded its comprehensive portfolio of courses for organizations that must comply with OSHA’s General Industry requirements and standards. Over the past 12 months, ClickSafety has launched multiple courses and expanded its curriculum for this key sector, and now offers nearly 100 General Industry courses.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, more than 13 people per day died while doing their General Industry jobs in 2015 and, according to the National Safety Council (NSC), the financial impact of safety incidents in this sector totaled $140 billion.
