AUGUSTA—SafetyWorks! through the Maine Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Standards is offering employers a no-cost course in Bangor on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Recordkeeping. Class will be held on Wednesday, May 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Tri-County CareerCenter, 45 Oak St., Ste. 3, in Bangor. Visit the class registration page at http://www.safetyworksmaine.gov or call 1-877-SAFE 345 (1-877-723-3345) to register.
OSHA Recordkeeping provides thorough, comprehensive, six-hour training for both new and experienced safety and human resources personnel. Employers will learn the OSHA rule (29 CFR 1904) regarding recording and reporting work-related injuries and illnesses as it applies to their organization. This class includes several hands-on activities on how to correctly fill out the required injury reporting forms.
SafetyWorks! is not OSHA and cannot issue fines or citations to private businesses. While SafetyWorks! helps businesses of any size, priority is given to small businesses. The program trains about 8,000 people and consults at nearly 1,000 worksites in Maine each year. Employers interested in learning more about the consulting and training services offered by SafetyWorks! should call 1-877-SAFE 345 (1-877-723-3345) or visit http://www.safetyworksmaine.gov .
