RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE PARTIES OF THE INTERNAL RESPONSIBILITY SYSTEM

RCSA has now completed our first safety training module and the public can easily access it on line from this web site. This safety training home study module, "RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE PARTIES OF THE INTERNAL RESPONSIBILITY SYSTEM" is currently being offered for free below. This course was designed and written in plain language. 

There is a lot more to be understood about the IRS (the Internal Responsibility System) Occupational Health and Safety Act then the general public is aware of. It reaches far beyond the basic safety training your employer may have provided you with. RCSA has provided the tools you needed to fill in this gap within this program. Your support is always appreciated, the RCSA Team.
