Dairy farmers who would like to hear the results of OSHA inspections on dairy farms and learn about changes to the LEP for year 2 are encouraged to participate in a webinar scheduled for Dec. 6 from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
The webinar will be led by Mary Bauer, Compliance Assistance Specialist, OSHA Eau Claire Area Office. She will discuss the types of citations that were issued and changes to the LEP for 2012-2013.
On Dec. 13, a second webinar will be held to review the basics of OSHA recordkeeping requirements. This webinar will cover OSHA 1904 Recordkeeping and Reporting of Injuries standard, including forms 300 and 300A.
