Safety Training



The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to train employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. These requirements reflect OSHA’s belief that training is an essential part of every employer’s safety and health program for protecting workers from injuries and illnesses. All Statewide Employees have an obligation to take their provided regulatory training.

*Note – Many regulatory trainings have an annual requirement, so if you attended safety training previously you may still need to attend training in the current year. Ergonomics is the only training that does not have an annual requirement.
