Agency seeks organizations to conduct online outreach courses
The Outreach Training Program is a voluntary participation information resource to train workers about occupational safety and health. OSHA began these courses in 2002 and in FY 2010 saw more than 110,000 workers receive the training.
The latest training will include 10- or 30-hour online courses on workers' rights, employers' responsibilities, filing a complaint, and describing work-related hazards. Organizational and staff experience and qualifications, course content and design, and technical and administrative capabilities are some of the criteria.
A proposal conference provided applicants with information about the training program. Applicants also learned about OSHA expectations for online trainers, online courses and methods of instruction, and administrative and program requirements for online trainers.
Applications must be received by OSHA's directorate of training and education by June 27.
