OSHA Offers Free Seminar for PHC Facilities in Canton, Ohio Area on June 9

June 2, 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 June 9 in Canton, Ohio.

One in a series of half-day seminars scheduled throughout the state, the Canton area seminar will be held at the Builders Exchange of East Central Ohio, 2521 34th St., NW, Canton, 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 (216) 771-6148. 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 Cleveland OSHA area office at (216) 522-3818. Additional seminars are scheduled in Marietta, Cleveland and Liberty Township, Ohio in June.
