OSHA Offers Free Seminar for Personal Health Care Facilities in New Philadelphia, Ohio Area

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Protecting workers and cutting injury compensation costs are the results OSHA expects personal health care facility operators to enjoy after participating in a half-day free seminar provided by the agency on June 3 in New Philadelphia, Ohio.

One in a series of half-day seminars scheduled throughout the state, the New Philadelphia area seminar will be held at Kent State University - Tuscarawas campus, 330 University Dr. NE, New Philadelphia, Ohio from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Registration for the seminar is requested and may be completed by sending a fax message to OSHA at 614-469-6791. OSHA asks that you include the number of persons attending from the registering organization.

The seminar will provide advice and guidance on OSHA regulations and best practices in dealing with such areas as bloodborne pathogens, ergonomic hazards, workplace violence, hazard communication, lockout/tagout requirements, and recordkeeping. Recent efforts by individual operators of personal health care facilities have shown a marked improvement in worker safety and health, with a resulting savings to employers in reduced workplace compensation costs.

Further information on the seminar may be obtained by calling the Columbus OSHA area office at 614-469-5582. Additional seminars are scheduled in Canton, Marietta, Cleveland and Liberty Township, Ohio in June.

Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. OSHA's role is to assure the safety and health of America's workers by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.
