Vermont Housing Managers Association Offering Training on VOSHA

Many activities involved in property maintenance present hazards to those performing the maintenance activities.  On Wednesday, January 29 the Vermont Housing Managers Association (VHMA) will be offering a one-day training with Daniel Whipple on Vermont’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (VOSHA). VOSHA Program Manager Daniel Whipple’s presentation will introduce the “focus four” that is the four hazards that are responsible for 90 percent of all contrsruction related fatalities.  Those hazards include falls, struck by, caught in/between and electrical hazards.  In addition, the training event will focus on chemical hazards and the new December 2013 requirements under the Hazardous Communication Standard and Globally Harmonized System of classifying, labeling and informing workers of the existence of hazardous chemicals in the workplace. The event details:
