JWCC to offer new OSHA training course

    John Wood Community College is offering an OSHA 10-hour General Industry Training Program April 27 and 28. This training course is intended to provide entry-level general industry workers information about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job related hazards on a job site.
    In two half-day sessions, this course offers resources and tools to create or enhance an effective safety and health management system, a review of the OSHA Act, and highlights of many key General Industry Safety and Health Standards.
    Sid Coe, a World Safety Organization certified safety executive and registered safety director, will teach the course.
    The class will meet Monday and Tuesday, April 27 and 28, from 12 to 5 p.m. at the JWCC Workforce Development Center at 4220 Kochs Lane, in Room W136.
