School safety training offered to school employees

A safety training class designed for school employees will be offered on October 11, 2012, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Augusta. The program is provided at no cost.

Topics covered during the class include required training, policies, procedures, enforcement regulations, facility inspections and more. The class will be taught by SafetyWorks!, an outreach program of the Maine Department of Labor (DOL).

Register for the class at the SafetyWorks! website. For details, please contact the Maine DOL at 623-7900.

SafetyWorks! will also visit schools to train employees. Arrange for free training by completing a request.  SafetyWorks! can train school staff on safety topics such as chemical safety (29 CFR 1910.1450), hazard communication (29 CFR 1910.1200), office safety and personal protective equipment.

Please remember to plan ahead and mark your calendar for next year’s annual Summer Safety Institute for Educators. If you have questions about safety training, contact the Maine DOL at 1-877-723-3345.
