Kilgore College offers OSHA Safety Classes Free of Cost
This December, Kilgore College will be offering two free safety classes. The course, “What to Do When OSHA Knocks your Door”, will take place on the 6th and 7th of December between 6 to 10 pm.

This eight hour course aims to prepare businessmen for inspections carried out by OSHA. An instructor will be chosen for role playing and the students will be participating in the mock inspection during class.

Then on the 8th and 9th of December, courses covering the cause of accidents and injuries will be covered. These courses will take place between 8 am to 5 pm. The topics covered would be accident investigation, ladder safety and fall protection.

These 16 hour courses will deal with the how and why of incidents that are both unexpected and dangerous. They will also teach ways to properly conduct an investigation and how to produce information that will be valuable for prevention.

Accidents involving heights are common not only at the workplace but also at home. Therefore, the topics of fall protection and ladder safety have been included in this course.

The KC Workforce Development's Risk Management Institute is offering these courses free of cost. This institute is funded by a grant from Texas Mutual Insurance Company.
