OSHA, Contractors Partner on Safety Training for Idaho’s Residential Construction Industry

April 22, 2005

The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is co-sponsoring seven sessions on “Safety and Health Training in the Residential Construction Industry” with the Idaho Associated General Contractors and Idaho Building Contractors Association.

The training sessions will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in:

* Hailey, April 28, Community Campus, 1050 Fox Acres Road, Room 301;
* Twin Falls, May 10, College of Southern Idaho, 315 Falls Ave., Desert Building, Room 113;
* McCall, May 11, Holiday Inn Express, 210 N. Third St.;
* Driggs, May 25, Driggs National Armory, 547 N. Main St.;

OSHA’s area office in Boise initiated the training, which is a key feature of a “local emphasis program” aimed at reducing job hazards in the residential construction industry. Company owners, managers, supervisors and foremen will learn about OSHA standards for residential construction, criteria for fall protection systems and equipment, and how to prepare for safety inspections.

Cost for each training session is $10 for AGC and IBAC members and $15 for others.
