Maine DOL offers course in OSHA recordkeeping

AUGUSTA, Maine — SafetyWorks! through the Maine Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Standards will offer employers a free course in on Friday, Oct. 12, in Presque Isle on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordkeeping.

Class will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Presque Isle CareerCenter, 66 Spruce St., Ste. 1. Visit the class registration page at www.safetyworksmaine.gov or call 1 (877) SAFE 345 — 1 (877) 723-3345 — to register.

OSHA Recordkeeping provides thorough and comprehensive six-hour training for both new and experienced safety and human resources personnel.
