OSHA seeks applications for online safety training programs

OSHA announced late last month that it is seeking applications from organizations "to provide 10- or 30-hour online OSHA Outreach Training Program courses in the construction, general and maritime industries."

The program "trains workers on their rights, describes employer responsibilities, explains how to file a complaint and describes work-related hazards," OSHA added.

Applications are due by June 27.

OSHA said it began offering online outreach training courses in 2002 and has seen a steady increase in the number of workers trained online; in the last fiscal year, more than 100,000 workers received online training of some sort. More than 110,000 workers received online training in fiscal 2010.
