Training & Education
Through a variety of programs, TOSHA Training Services assists employers, employees, and their representatives in reducing safety and health hazards in their workplaces and in complying with the requirements of TOSHA standards and regulations. TOSHA provides education to employers and "train-the-trainer" programs. This means TOSHA does not provide the direct training to employees that is required to fulfill training requirements in a TOSHA standard or regulation. It is always the employer's responsibility to train his or her employees.
View the schedule for all of the upcoming training seminars over the next few months. TOSHA seminars range from a half day to four days and are offered all over the state. Topics range from OSHA Recordkeeping and Basic Safety to the OSHA 30-Hour for General Industry Course and Bloodborne Pathogens.
TOSHA standards and regulations that have training requirements are LAW. Failure to comply with the training requirements not only places your employees at risk but can also result in citations and civil penalties.
TOSHA is currently focusing major prevention efforts in the areas of amputation, carbon monoxide, falls, food flavoring containing Diacetyl, hexavalent chromium, Isocyanates, lead, noise, microwave processing, nursing and residential care facilities, recordkeeping, and trenching and excavation.
Employers are required by law to report all workplace fatalities within EIGHT hours of occurrence. All work-related inpatient hospitalizations, all amputations and all losses of an eye must be reported within 24 hours.
