College offering weeklong OSHA training in January
Jan 10, 2014 - From staff reports
Central Wyoming College is offering a 30-hour General Industry Outreach Training from Jan. 27 to Jan. 31 which will result in an OSHA card.
To accommodate those working in the field, CWC Environment, Health and Safety instructor John Kemp is offering the course from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in room 210 of the Health and Science Center.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration developed the trainings so employees can recognize and eliminate workplace hazards.
The course introduces students to OSHA policies, procedures and standards found in the Code of Federal Regulations. Emphasis is placed on safety as a core value in the workplace and on the elimination and/or mitigation of hazardous conditions, Kemp said.
The scope and application of OSHA construction standards contained in 29 CFR 1926 and general industry standards contained in 29 CFR 1910 also is addressed. Successful students will receive a 30-hour OSHA General Industry card.
Students can register at the Registration and Records Office until Jan. 17.
