AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Standards is taking its injury-recordkeeping course for employers on the road to Cumberland County in August. 

These courses are held at no charge to the employer and are designed for small business owners and staff who have responsibility for managing human resources.

The course, “OSHA Recordkeeping,” will teach employers how to document workplace injuries and illnesses, and will be held 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, in the public safety building at 570 Main St. in Westbrook. 

This class provides a thorough and comprehensive six-hour training for both new and experienced safety and human resources personnel. Participants learn the OSHA rule (29 CFR 1904) regarding recording and reporting work-related injuries and illnesses as it applies to their organizations. This class includes several hands-on activities covering how to fill out the required injury reporting forms correctly.

Employers interested in registering can learn more and register at http://www.maine.gov/tools/whatsnew/index.php?topic=Safetyworks_Classes&v=ListAll . Space is limited so reservations are required.

The Bureau of Labor Standards is Maine’s regulatory agency overseeing labor and employment law and workplace safety; it provides both consultation and enforcement services. The division promotes and achieves compliance with labor standards to protect and enhance the welfare of Maine’s workforce.
