The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has scheduled a three-day training event for federal agency staff responsible for keeping federal workers safe and healthy on the job.

The OSHA Training Institute, in collaboration with OSHA’s Office of Federal Agency Programs, will conduct a series of half-day seminars that discuss potential hazards, such as distracted driving, ergonomics, confined spaces, hearing conservation, and fall protection. OSHA developed this training event to ensure that federal workplaces have safety programs and standards consistent with those in the private sector.

The event will be held July 30 – August 1, 2013, at the OSHA Training Institute. Registration will remain open until July 23, 2013. Completed registration forms must be emailed to OTI Student Services at oti.registration@dol.gov.

Government agency personnel will not be charged tuition or fees to attend the training courses. However, Department of Labor regulations require OSHA to charge tuition to private sector attendees and federal government contractors.

OTI provides training and education in occupational safety and health for federal and state compliance officers, state consultants, other federal agency personnel and the private sector. For more information on OTI, visit OSHA’s Directorate of Training and Education Web page.
