OSHA seeks applications from organizations to offer online worker safety and health training courses
U.S. Department of Labor
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA www.osha.gov) is seeking applications from organizations to provide 10- or 30-hour online OSHA Outreach Training Program courses in the construction, general and maritime industries. The program trains workers on their rights, describes employer responsibilities, explains how to file a complaint and describes work-related hazards. Applications must be received by OSHA's Directorate of Training and Education by June 27, 2011.
OSHA began online outreach training courses in 2002 and has since seen a steady increase in the number of workers trained online. More than 110,000 workers received online training in fiscal 2010.
"As a result of the interest in Outreach Training Programs, we are initiating this competition to ensure that we are providing quality training for all participants," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels.
Applicants will be selected based on their organizational and staff experience and qualifications, course content and design, and technical and administrative capabilities, among other requirements.
