On Dec. 1 of this year, contractors in the New Hampshire region must implement and document training for all field employees covering two significant changes in OSHA-required workplace safety.
To help with this process, Belknap Landscape Company (BLC) will be hosting a Fall Protection and Material Safety Data Sheet Seminar, which is open to all area contractors.
Attendees will learn how to become compliant with new OSHA rules and avoid costly fines.
The two-hour class on Oct. 4 is $20 per person and will be at the Belknap Sportsman’s Club Association.
This session is only informative and will not certify individuals or companies.
The Presenters include Ted Bertram of Bertram, Leithner & Associates and Andrew Palhof, Compliance Assistance Specialist, US Department of Labor OSHA. Bertram will provide a fall protection equipment demonstration utilizing a truck with a special rack, line & harness, while Palhof will present details on the OSHA Rules and Compliance for both Fall Prevention and MSDS changes.
