Training Services

Through a variety of programs, TOSHA Training Services assists employers, employees, and their representatives in reducing safety and health hazards in their workplaces and in complying with the requirements of TOSHA standards and regulations. TOSHA provides education to employers and "train-the-trainer" programs. This means TOSHA does not provide the direct training to employees that is required to fulfill training requirements in a TOSHA standard or regulation. It is always the employer's responsibility to train his or her employees.

TOSHA seminars
Training seminars are scheduled in the spring and fall of each year and are conducted at locations across the state. 2013 Schedule
