OSHA Training Institute Catalog of Courses.
May, Fredric C., Comp.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration Training Institute's series of courses for 1978 is presented in this catalog. Most courses are designed for occupational safety or health professionals who are federal or state employees; two are available for personnel from the private sector. The schedule includes courses required for newly hired safety engineers, safety specialists, and industrial hygienists, as well as revised, advanced technical courses for experienced compliance safety and health officers (CSHOs). Course content is based on The Occupational Health and Safety Act, pertinent standards, and operational procedures incorporated into the safety and health field operation manuals. Each course listing includes a description of what is covered in the course, length of course, objectives, course highlights, and the course's sequence in the compliance training program. The following are some of the thirty-four course titles: hazardous materials, welding, compressed gases, and fire protection; initial compliance course for industrial hygienists; safety hazard recognition; principles of industrial ventilation; recognition, evaluation, and control of noise; civil law enforcement for CSHOs; basic industrial hygiene; respirator training; basic science as applied to occupational safety and health; and accident investigation. The catalog includes a floor plan of the institute, general course information, and application procedures. Appended are lists of self-instruction courses, area office seminars, on-the-job training segments, descriptions of the institute staff, a subject index to the courses, and a directional map of the institute and surrounding area.
