Oregon OSHA lunchtime small business training comes to Portland
If you're a small business professional, you know there just aren't enough
hours in the day to accomplish everything - sales work, production work,
accounting, and running your safety program. Does it take a lot of time
to set up a safety program? How about two lunch hours! Oregon OSHA will
offer a no-cost simple safety and health program in Portland during four
lunchtime workshops in November.
The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA) designed
the Safety for Small Business' program to help small business owners
start implementing safety and health programs in their workplace. 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 Safety for Small Business 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 training modules.
