OSHA to Agency Employees: Use OSHA Training Institute

In a seven-page directive issued by OSHA chief Edwin G. Foulke Jr. and effective Aug. 22, OSHA is requiring all occupational safety and health training courses for OSHA agency safety and health professionals be coordinated through its Directorate of Training and Education. The directive provides for the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) to be the preeminent provider of occupational safety and health training courses for OSHA agency safety and health professionals.

Exemptions from this directive include attendance at pre-approved occupational safety and health conferences, training on subject matter or topics not offered by OTI, and informal training conducted by regional, area, and district offices.
