Two-day OSHA 10 Training seminar takes place Sept. 27-28

Don’t be caught out of compliance with OSHA and state safety regulations. They complement each other but have different compliance areas. Joe Teeples of We’re Into Safety will teach the two-day OSHA 10 Training at AWB Sept. 27-28. The course will cover:

  • How OSHA and state rules complement each other in Washington and Oregon.
  • How to communicate hazard awareness to their employees and employers.
  • How to identify, avoid and prevent hazardous situations.
  • How accountability and negligence can create a personal jeopardy for individuals.
  • How to comply with safety rules regarding fire safety, egress, personal protective equipment and more.
  • How to comply with the new global harmonization system rules for chemicals in the workplace.

At completion of the course, attendees will receive an official course completion card from the U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA. This card will be useful during an inspection, as it demonstrates your efforts and commitment to voluntary compliance with all OSHA standards and regulations.

Registration is now open. For more information and questions, contact Kelli Schueler at 360.943.1600.

Larson presents a strong, credible challenge to a court that has at times veered off course. He deserves a six-year term to the state Supreme Court.

Many of us remember writing that dreaded essay about how we spent our summer vacation — often struggling to recall what we did or make it sound interesting.

That won't be a problem for the almost 800 students at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory this summer. They will have challenging and rewarding experiences to share with friends and families.

Take Isis Carrillo, for example, a University of Washington student planning to study molecular and cellular biology. She is working alongside PNNL mentors in instrument development and microfabrication laboratories, gaining useful skills and invaluable experience...
