OSHA Offers Webcast Training on Recordkeeping Rule
National Satellite Broadcast Set for Dec. 12, 2001
Washington, DC -- At over 200 locations throughout the country, employers and employees will participate in an OSHA recordkeeping training session via a satellite broadcast. Others not at the sites can access the information via the web by linking to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's website at www.osha-slc.gov/recordkeeping/RKsatellite.html.

The training focuses on OSHA's updated injury and illness recordkeeping requirements that will take effect Jan. 1, 2002 and cover about 1.4 million employers. The webcast presentation will remain on OSHA's website through July 30, 2002.

The webcast will be open to the first 5,000 people. The live event is set for 1 pm to 3:30 pm EST on December 12.
