RESTON, VA -- As a part of its Alliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) announces a new Table Saw Safety Training Program. The Table Saw Safety Training program was developed by Kelly Moore Consulting and the KCMA through the OSHA and KCMA Alliance as a tool for cabinet manufacturers to use in training their employees on the safe operation of a table saw.
The training program is made up of five components: a PowerPoint presentation to train employees; a safety tip sheet; a test for employees to take to demonstrate their understanding of the PowerPoint presentation; an answer sheet; and an evaluation of the trainer demonstration of the saw. The program is available for free download at www.kcma.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=members.KCMA/OSHA_Alliance
"Through our alliance with OSHA, we strive to provide KCMA members and others with materials, guidance and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety, especially in reducing and preventing exposure to amputation hazards," said Dick Titus, Executive Vice President, KCMA. "The Table Saw Safety Training program is one more tool available to manufacturers to enhance workplace safety."
The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association, headquartered in Reston, Va., is the principal trade association in the United States for manufacturers of kitchen cabinets, bath vanities, decorative laminate products and suppliers to the industry. The KCMA is committed to excellence in manufacturing through continued quality, advocacy and leadership.
