Georgia Northwestern Technical College will offer two Occupational Safety and Health Administration compliance training opportunities with a lunchtime discussion on Friday, April 25, and a seminar on Thursday, May 1, at the Gordon County Campus.

The program will cover recent changes in OSHA standards, including the National Fire Protection Agency 70E – Electrical Safety and Globally Harmonized System – Hazard Communications Standards, and will cover how to insure that an organization is in compliance.

“This training will make employees familiar with these compliance changes and help make the workplace safer,” said Mr. Helms.
