Activities and Products
This report covers January 17, 2009 to January 01, 2010.
The Alliance continued the series of breakfast seminars at the Eigerlab in
Rockford. These training seminars provided low-cost training to small businesses
on OSHA inspection procedures, NFPA 70E, ergonomics, and Safety and Health
Training materials were developed for each Eigerlab breakfast seminar. The
training seminars were interactive, so the training materials included
workshops. The materials were developed by Rita Mosley, Training and Promotions
Manager, Illinois Onsite Consultation Program, with input and review conducted
by Nancy Quick, CAS, Aurora Area Office and other consultants.
This Alliance provided valuable technical information to small employers. Small
employers were able to receive quality, affordable training at convenient
locations. The courses cost less than $50.00 to attend.
During the evaluation period, the Alliance provided training to 324 employers.
Evaluations consistently rated the handout material, speaker skills, and student
involvement consistently high.
