The Public Education and Conferences Section of Oregon OSHA will be offering
four different workshops during the training sessions on April 23 and
‘Safety and Health Management Planning’ is an introduction class for employers
to learn about creating safe workplaces and planning ahead. ‘Recordkeeping’

effect on January 1, including the new OSHA 300 log (which replaces the
Form 200 log). ‘Accident Investigation’ will provide help in conducting
an investigation into workplace injury or safety incidents and ‘Hazard Identification
and Control’ will help participants uncover a hazardous condition or practice,
and take steps to correct the situation.
