In Gloucester, Massachusetts, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will lead an all-day safety training workshop this Thursday, April 23. The workplace safety seminar is presented by the Contractor’s Division of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce and leads to the awarding of an OSHA 10 Certificate, which is a requirement for workers in many states.
Massachusetts has required an OSHA 10 certificate on all prevailing rate jobs since August of 2006 and many places are increasingly requiring the certificate on non-prevailing rate jobs. Understanding safety regulations is especially important for construction workers, as their jobs may expose them to hazards such as explosions, crane accidents, fires, welding accidents, and more.
Randy Purser of Crane’s Safety Institute in Ashland will lead the workshop. Contact the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce at 978-283-1601 or info AT CapeAnnChamber DOT com to register.
