Oregon OSHA offers lunchtime small business training in Madras
Think that establishing a small business safety program takes up a lot
of time from your busy schedule? How about two lunch hours? Oregon OSHA
will offer a no-cost simple safety and health program through a series
of "brown bag" lunch workshops in September.
The Public Education and Conferences Section of Oregon OSHA (Occupational
Safety and Health Division) designed the Safety for Small Business'
program to help small business owners start implementing safety and health
programs in their workplaces. The program consists of two one-hour "brown
bag" workshops. Participants bring their own lunches and Oregon OSHA
provides workshop materials for participants. The workshop is free.
The Safety for Small Business workshop is presented in two phases. Attendance
is required at the first meeting to participate in the Phase Two meeting
two weeks later. Participants will learn how to integrate a safety and
health program into their business plan, receive industry-specific resource
materials, and be introduced to the program's ten short duration safety
and health training modules.
Madras: September 19, 2002 - Noon to 1:00pm at the Madras College Center,

Oregon OSHA offers a variety of conferences, on-site training, educational
