Oregon OSHA offers free training in Hermiston

HERMISTON - The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (OR-OSHA) will offer free training sessions to members of the Hermiston-area business community during two days of workshops in April.


The Public Education and Conferences Section of Oregon OSHA will be offering four different workshops during the training sessions on April 23 and 24: 

  • Safety and Health Management Planning, 8:00am April 23.
  • Recordkeeping, 1:00pm April 23.
  • Accident Investigation, 8:00am April 24. 
  • Hazard Identification and Control, 1:00pm April 24.
‘Safety and Health Management Planning’ is an introduction class for employers to learn about creating safe workplaces and planning ahead. ‘Recordkeeping’ introduces employers to new OR-OSHA records requirements that went into effect on January 1, including the new OSHA 300 log (which replaces the Form 200 log). ‘Accident Investigation’ will provide help in conducting an investigation into workplace injury or safety incidents and ‘Hazard Identification and Control’ will help participants uncover a hazardous condition or practice, and take steps to correct the situation.


The four-hour workshops will be held at the State Office Building (Henryetta Room), 950 SE Columbia Drive Suite C in Hermiston. Oregon OSHA provides workshop materials for participants.


Oregon OSHA offers a variety of conferences, on-site training, educational resources and consultation services to help Oregon employers create safer workplaces and reduce the amount of productivity lost due to injuries which occur at work. Additional information and resources are available on Oregon OSHA’s website, www.orosha.org


For more information about these workshops or to register, call the Oregon OSHA Education Section, (503) 947-7443, or toll-free in Oregon, (888) 292-5247 Option 2.
