OSHA Offering Free Seminar for Personal Health Care Facilities in Ohio

May 23, 2005

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 May 31 in Chillicothe, Ohio.

One in a series of half-day seminars scheduled throughout the state, the Chillicothe area seminar will be held at the Ross County Service Center, 475 Western Ave. (Rte. 50W), Chillicothe, Ohio from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Registration for the seminar is requested and may be completed by sending a fax message to OSHA at (513) 841-4114. OSHA asks that interested individuals 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 reportedly 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 Cincinnati OSHA area office at (513) 841-4132. Nine additional seminars are scheduled across the state in May and June.
