The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has selected 10 training providers to deliver 25 online courses as part of the agency’s Outreach Training Program. We can’t have enough places to learn about safety especially in the contruction and roofing business. OSHA’s training program teaches workers how to identify, prevent and eliminate workplace hazards. The program advises workers of their rights, the responsibilities of the employer and how to file a complaint.
The online courses are voluntary and provide training to help protect workers’ safety and health and also help employers reduce the high costs of worker injuries and illnesses. The organizations OSHA selected to offer the online courses will provide construction, general industry and maritime 10 and 30 hour classes.
