There are numerous benefits from science and technology. It is remarkable how a society can easily adapt and never cease to ask questions. Our collective consciousness, with its curiosity, has brought the human life to a place where we can refrigerate our food instead of hunting like our ancestors did. Prior to technological advancement, there were no established societies. The positive effects of technology on society has brought progress and allowed us to reach new heights that were never conceived of before. Without science and technology we are left stagnant.
Many standards promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) explicitly require employers to train employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. Other OSHA standards make it the employer’s responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are “certified,” “competent,” or “qualified”-meaning that they have had special previous training, in or out of the workplace. These requirements reflect OSHA’s belief that training is an essential part of every employer’s safety and health program for protecting workers from injuries and illnesses.
