OSHA Aims to Train Federal Workers to Private Sector's Safety Standards

A three-day OSHA training event has been scheduled for federal agency staff responsible for workplace safety and health issues. This training, happening June 22-24 at the OSHA Training Institute in Arlington Heights, Ill., is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills needed for keeping federal workers safe and healthy on the job, the agency said.

The OSHA Training Institute, in collaboration with OSHA's Office of Federal Agency Programs, will conduct a series of half-day seminars that discuss potential hazards, such as ergonomics, pandemic influenza, indoor air quality, and fire protection. OSHA said it developed this training event to ensure that federal workplaces have safety programs and standards consistent with those in the private sector.

Registration will be open until June 8. Students can access registration forms, course descriptions, and other details at www.osha.gov/dep/fap/index.html. Completed registration forms must be e-mailed to OTI Student Services at oti.registration@dol.gov.

Government agency personnel will not be charged tuition or fees to attend the training courses. However, Department of Labor regulations require OSHA to charge tuition to private sector attendees and federal government contractors.

The OTI provides training and education in occupational safety and health for federal and state compliance officers, state consultants, other federal agency personnel, and the private sector. For more information on OTI, visit OSHA's Directorate of Training and Education Web page at https://www.osha.gov/dte/index.html. Part of OSHA's Office of Federal Agency Programs responsibilities include coordinating OSHA investigations of safety and health complaints, as well as coordinating OSHA inspections to ensure agencies provide federal workers with safe work environments.
