  • - Garrett College Continuing Education & Workforce Development will host a Regulations Professional Seminar, an Important New OSHA Regulations Update, on Friday, September 9, 2016 from 9 a.m. until 12 noon in Room 205 in the Continuing Education building at the McHenry campus of Garrett College. The OSHA injury and illness records are critical indicators. The OSHA records help identify unsafe patterns and trends in the workplace and to monitor improvements. These records demonstrate how well we are doing in our efforts to keep workers safe and healthy. Accurate OSHA recordkeeping can provide the answers.

    This presentation seminar will provide an overview of 29CFR Part 1904 of the OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation. The presentation will present the basics of the regulation going step-by-step through major sections in the rule. Included will be an activity of injury and illness case scenarios determining if each case should be recorded on the OSHA log based on the principles presented.

    Steve Bisson, presenter of this seminar, is an administrator with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, Division of Labor and Industry. He has been working with occupational safety and health statistics including providing training for the OSHA recordkeeping regulation for over 26 years. He is the program manager for the Maryland Division of Labor and Industry's Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Injury and Illness Statistics Programs and functions as a principal adviser to the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency on the recordkeeping regulation. Bisson is currently part of a work group tasked by federal OSHA to develop a new injury tracking web application.

    For more information or to register for the upcoming seminar, persons may contact Connie Meyers, Director of Professional Development and Contract Training at Garrett College, at 301-387-3084 or connie.meyers@garrettcollege.edu.
