Oregon OSHA offers free training in Ashland
ASHLAND - The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (OR-OSHA)
will offer free training sessions to members of the Ashland business community
during two days of workshops in June.
The Public Education and Conferences Section of Oregon OSHA will be offering
four different workshops during the training sessions on June 18 &
- Powered Industrial Truck Safety, 8:00am June 18.
- Exposure Control/Bloodborne Pathogens, 1:00pm June 18.
- Recordkeeping, 8:00am June 19.
- Confined Space Safety, 1:00pm June 19.
Powered Industrial Truck Safety gives participants an introduction
to Oregon OSHA rules for operating forklifts safely and how to design
a forklift-training program. Exposure Control/Bloodborne Pathogens
discusses how to protect workers from bloodborne diseases and contamination
as well as implementing an effective exposure control plan. Recordkeeping
will update participants about new OSHA recordkeeping requirements which
went into effect in January (including the OSHA Form 300). Confined
Space Safety will help participants learn about the special safety
requirements when a worker will be inside of a confined space (or inside
of machinery), and when a special permit is required.
The workshops will be held at Stephenson Union Building Room 330 on the
Southern Oregon University campus in Ashland. OR-OSHA provides workshop
materials for participants.
Oregon OSHA offers a variety of conferences, on-site training, educational
resources and consultation services to help Oregon employers create safer
workplaces and reduce the amount of productivity lost due to injuries
which occur at work. Additional information and resources are available
on Oregon OSHAs website, www.orosha.org
