OSHA Small Business Outreach Seminars On Personal Protective Equipment
To Be Offered In May At Six Upstate New York Locations


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Helping small Upstate New York employers ensure the safety of their employees using personal protective equipment is the goal of seminars being offered by the Buffalo office of the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in conjunction with area organizations and colleges.

The same seminar, on the topic of personal protective equipment, is being offered at six different locations during May as follows:


May 1, 2003 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Erie Community College South Campus, Orchard Park, NY
NCCC Corporate Training Center, Lockport, NY
May 8, 2003 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

May 15, 2003 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

"Quite often, personal protective equipment is the first-line of defense in protecting an employee against a known hazard. Employers and employees need to know when and how to use this important and potentially life-saving equipment," said Art Dube, OSHA's Buffalo area director. "This seminar will explain how a small business owner can assess hazards in their workplace and determine when personal protective equipment is necessary."

The session is part of the OSHA Small Business Seminar Series covering a variety of topics that the federal agency will offer this year to assist small Upstate New York employers in complying with workplace safety and health standards.

To register for one of the May seminars, and to obtain more information, contact the Buffalo OSHA Area Office at 716-684-3891.
