Oregon OSHA comes to Ashland to Train the Trainer'
Your supervisor has a big announcement for you: You will now be in charge
of your company's safety and health program. By the way, you will also
train ALL employees on safety and health in the workplace. But who will
train you in order to train everyone else?
The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA) has developed
a new two-day "Train the Trainer" workshop to give you the tools
necessary to be able to teach workplace safety and health basics. The
FREE course is scheduled to be in Ashland on October 9 & 10 from 8:00am
to 5:00pm each day at the Stephenson Union Building on Southern Oregon
University's campus, 1250 Siskiyou Boulevard in Ashland.
The workshop will cover an overview of Oregon OSHA training requirements,
how to develop an effective safety training program, developing classroom
presentation skills and conducting on-the-job (OJT) training.
Six of the two-day "Train the Trainer" workshops are scheduled
across the state during the coming twelve months, including classes in
Beaverton, Bend, Eugene, Portland and Salem. This will be the only opportunity
for southern Oregon residents to take advantage of this comprehensive
workplace training during the next twelve months. Space for the Ashland
workshop is limited, so attendees should register as soon as possible.
Oregon OSHA offers a variety of resources and consultation services to
help Oregon employers create safer workplaces and reduce the number of
injuries which occur at work. Additional information and resources are
available on Oregon OSHA's website, www.orosha.org
