Oregon OSHA offers free training in Klamath Falls
KLAMATH FALLS - The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division
(OR-OSHA) will offer free training sessions to members of the Klamath
Falls-area business community during two days of workshops in May.
The Public Education and Conferences Section of Oregon OSHA will be offering
four different workshops during the training sessions on May 1 and 2:
- Hazard Identification and Control, 8:00am May 1.
- Training the Safety Trainer, 1:00pm May 1.
- What to Expect From an OR-OSHA Inspection, 8:00am May 2.
- Safety Leadership, 1:00pm May 2.
Hazard Identification and Control will help participants
uncover a hazardous condition or practice in the workplace, and take steps
to correct the situation. Training the Safety Trainer teaches
participants how to train other members of their workplace team about
safety issues. What to Expect From an OR-OSHA Inspection helps
clear up some misconceptions about Oregon OSHA, and how an OR-OSHA compliance
officer conducts an inspection or investigation on a worksite (including
what rights and responsibilities both employers and employees have when
a compliance officer shows up). Safety Leadership helps participants
take safety improvements out of the three-ring binder and motivates workers
to take charge for creating a safe workplace.
The workshops will be held at the Community Health Education Center (Multipurpose
Room A), 2200 Eldorado Boulevard in Klamath Falls. OR-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 OSHAs website, www.orosha.org
