Maine Labor Group on Health Offering Free Safety Training for Workers & Employees
The Maine Labor Group on Health has received OSHA funding to provide FREE occupational safety and health training classes to workers and employers. These one to two-hour, union member to union member sessions can be stand alone or linked together to form a more substantial class. The course is also free to groups of workers who are organizing and for non-profits.
Topics include: job hazard analysis, asbestos awareness, excavation awareness, blood-borne pathogens, workplace violence, kitchen/restaurant hazards, silica awareness, chemical safety, lead awareness, personal protective equipment (including respiratory protection), confined spaces (non-rescue), young worker safety and potentially several others.
All classes are free and can be done in-person or virtually depending on preference of the group asking for the training.
Unions, non-profits and organizing committees who have questions or would like to schedule training can reach Peter Crockett (MSEA-SEIU 1989 member) at 446-5762.
