"Proper safety training is one of the most important aspects of an effective safety program. New employees need to be taught the company’s safety policies, specific job safety requirements and mandated OSHA training. The goal of safety training is not only to convey knowledge, but to develop the proper attitude towards safety and establish safe work practices from the beginning."
