OSHA construction safety seminars

Pitt-Bradford will hold two mini-safety seminars this spring to help businesses comply with the standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. 

            Sponsored by the university’s Division of Continuing Education and Regional Development, these short classes are designed for supervisors, field workers or safety directors and will focus on topics in specific safety areas. 

            The first session, Construction 29 CFR 1926, will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon Jan. 24 in Room 200 of the Seneca Building, 2 Main St., Bradford. The class will cover elements of most construction site activities, including fall protection, personal protective equipment, excavation and trenching, scaffolding, and safety and health training. 

            The second session will cover Recordkeeping 29 CFR 1904 and the OSHA 2013 Update. It will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon April 4 in Room 200 of the Seneca Building. The class will provide instructions on how to complete the OSHA 300 Log, 300A Summary and 301 Incident Report. 

            Each session costs $32. Advance registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Continuing Education at (814)362-5078 or contined@pitt.edu
