    OSHA STAFF TRAINING TELECONFERENCE


    Dates & Times

    October 6 - 9 a.m. (C.S.T.)

    October 13 - 2 p.m. (C.S.T.)

    October 20 - 2 p.m. (C.S.T.)


    Program

    The purpose of this session is to assist the funeral home owner in providing the mandated annual OSHA training to their professional staff as required under 29 CFR 1910.1030 Bloodborne Pathogens and 29 CFR 1910.1048 Formaldehyde.

    It is designed specifically for employees. It is not meant to be a compliance seminar for owners. It is assumed that the employer is already making a good-faith effort at OSHA compliance and is using this teleconference as a part of their ongoing compliance efforts.

    Cost

    The cost is only $65 per phone line a session. As many staff members as can listen in are welcome to participate at no additional charge. So if you have multiple locations or want to split your staff between two or three sessions, you must register each separately and pay $65 each. Instructions are below on how to register.


    To Register

    Click "Register" above. Enter an email address, which we use to contact you with for your seminar registration details. Please include at the top the main contact registrant's name. Please enter attendee names or email a list of participants for continuing education credit. One registration is good for as many as want to listen in.

    The KFDA office will confirm your registration and supply you with the call-in number, access code and handouts. Make as many copies as necessary for all attendees. If you want to register for more than one session or for different phone numbers, repeat the process above.
