OSHA to provide training for federal agencies

Washington – OSHA has scheduled a three-day training event for federal agency employees who oversee federal worker safety.

The training, scheduled to run July 30 through Aug. 1 at OSHA’s Training Institute in Arlington Heights, IL, will consist of half-day seminars on topics such as distracted driving, ergonomics, confined spaces, hearing conservation and fall protection, according to an OSHA press release. The agency said the training is intended to ensure federal workplaces have safety programs in line with their private-sector counterparts.

The deadline to register for training is July 23. Government employees will not be charged to attend the event; private-sector employees and federal government contractors must pay a registration fee.
