The Workforce Investment Board is pursuing a training grant for employers in Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Otsego, Chenango & Delaware counties who need OSHA and other safety training for new or current employees.

OSHA offers a wide selection of training courses and educational programs to help broaden worker and employer knowledge on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of safety and health hazards in their workplaces.

Any employers interested in receiving/developing/participating in specific safety training should send an email to asavino@working-solutions.org.  We will contact each employer to understand their specific need, number to be trained and the process.  If appropriate that training will become part of the application and IF we are successful in the application award will proceed to provide the requested training.
