OSHA Offers Training Event for Federal Workers

Starting July 31 in Arlington Heights, Ill., it is free for government agency personnel. Topics include GHS, ergonomics, workplace violence, and indoor air quality.

The OSHA Training Institute (OTI) and OSHA's Office of Federal Agency Programs have developed a series of safety seminars that will be presented July 31 through Aug. 2 at OTI, which is located at 2020 South Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights, Ill., with federal workers the intended audience.

Topics include ergonomics, Hazard Communication focused on the Globally Harmonized System, indoor air quality, and workplace violence. OSHA's announcement said the agency developed this training event to ensure that federal workplaces have safety programs equal to those in the private sector and also to help federal managers implement and manage injury and illness prevention programs. Federal agencies reported 53 federal worker deaths in fiscal year 2010 and federal workers filed more than 30,000 workers' compensation claims for lost-time injuries, according to the announcement.

Registration is open until July 24 at www.osha.gov/dep/fap/fedweek_fy12.html. Completed registration forms must be emailed to OTI Student Services at oti.registration@dol.gov.

While government agency employees won't be charged tuition or fees to attend the courses, OSHA said Labor Department regulations require it to charge tuition to private-sector attendees and federal government contractors.
