OSHA is conducting a three-day training "to ensure that federal workplaces have safety programs and standards consistent with those in the private sector."
Federal agency staff members responsible for keeping federal workers safe and healthy on the job will not be charged to attend the training. However, private sector attendees and federal government contractors will be charge, per Department of Labor regulations.
The training is being done by the OSHA Training Institute in collaboration with OSHA's Office of Federal Agency Programs. It will be held July 30-Aug.1 at the OSHA Training Institute in Arlington Heights, Ill.
The institute offers training and education on occupational safety and health for federal and state compliance officers, state consultants, and other federal agency personnel in addition to the private sector.
