OSHA training registration is now open

BEDFORD – The Lawrence County Workforce Coalition and Stone City Products, Inc. are partnering with Purdue MEP and local manufacturing employers to offer OSHA training in a workshop format to their employees. Training will include the option of an OSHA 10-Hour General Industry or a 30-Hour General Industry course.

The 10-hour workshop, known as “OSHA 10” provides employees at all levels with an awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards and instructs them on how to stay safe on the job through hazard identification, avoidance, control, and prevention. Upon completion of this one full-day and one half-day workshop, participants will receive their OSHA 10 Card. OSHA 10 will be held on September 26 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on September 27 from 8 a.m. until Noon at the Bedford Chamber of Commerce, located at 1116 16th Street, in Bedford.

The 30-hour workshop, known as “OSHA 30,” provides employees of all levels with all the training provided in an OSHA 10 workshop plus recordkeeping requirements and common management responsibilities.

Upon completion of these four full-day workshops, participants will receive their OSHA 30 Card. OSHA 30 will be held on October 17, 24, 31, and November 7 (Mondays) from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Bedford Chamber of Commerce.

Lawrence County Economic Growth Council Director of Career Development Joe Timbrook says, “Each participant will leave the training with a clear understanding of worker’s rights and employer responsibilities; fire prevention and emergency response; electrical safety; fall protection; how to prevent workplace hazards, and much more.” “Employers today understand that training and development are directly linked to employee motivation and retention as training can critically impact both individual satisfaction and business performance.”
