Oregon OSHA offers lunchtime small business training in Redmond
Think that establishing a small business safety program takes up a lot
of time from your busy schedule? How about two lunch hours? Oregon OSHA
will offer a no-cost simple safety and health program to the Redmond business
community through a "brown bag" lunch workshop in August.
The Public Education and Conferences Section of Oregon OSHA (Occupational
Safety and Health Division) designed the Safety and the Small Business
Employer (SATSBE) program to help small business owners start implementing
safety and health programs in their workplaces. The program consists of
two one-hour "brown bag" workshops. Participants bring their
own lunches and Oregon OSHA provides workshop materials for participants.
The workshop is free.
The SATSBE workshop is presented in two phases. Attendance is required
at the first meeting to participate in the Phase Two meeting two weeks
later. Participants will learn how to integrate a safety and health program
into their business plan, receive industry-specific resource materials,
and be introduced to the program's ten short duration safety and health
