Oregon OSHA offers free training in Roseburg
ROSEBURG - The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (OR-OSHA)
will offer free training sessions to members of the Roseburg-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 21 and 22:
- Confined Space Safety, 8:00am May 21.
- Fall Protection, 1:00pm May 21.
- What to Expect From an OR-OSHA Inspection, 8:00am May 22.
- Excavation Safety, 1:00pm May 22.
Confined Space Safety will help participants learn about
the special safety requirements when a worker will be inside of a confined
space (or inside of machinery), and when a special permit is required.
Fall Protection teaches participants about safety equipment
required in the construction industry, and how to plan ahead to prevent
workplace fall-related injuries. 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). Excavation
Safety helps participants understand safety requirements unique
to underground work or trench work.
The workshops will be held at Umpqua Community Colleges Community
Education Timber Room, 1140 College Road in Roseburg. 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
