Nashville, TN (CompNewsNetwork) - Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health
Administration has 46 upcoming spring training seminars at several locations throughout the

The seminars are open to anyone who is interested in attending. Courses range

classes being offered: TOSHA 101, 30-Hour General Industry, Basic Safety and Bloodborne

“The key to prevention is knowledge and TOSHA is doing everything they can to
provide employees and employers with the knowledge they need to prevent workplace safety
and health hazards,” said Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley.
In 2007, TOSHA had over 400 training sessions with nearly 12,000 attendees.
Each year these numbers are continuing to grow and workplace injuries are continuing to
decrease. Since the year 2000 TOSHA has nearly doubled their training numbers which has
resulted in a 1.6 percent injury reduction rate.
"TOSHA is committed to helping employers and employees have a safe and
healthly workplace through training and education,” said Sandra Bennett, TOSHA Training
Manager. “TOSHA has excellent trainers who know the requirements in TOSHA standards and
regulations and can help you apply them in your facility to prevent injuries/illnesses and
save lives. Come work with us!"
