OSHA requires federal agencies to provide training for collateral duty safety and health personnel and all members of certified occupational safety and health committees commensurate with the scope of their assigned responsibilities. Since collateral assignments and committee appointments entail safety and health duties and responsibilities over and above employees’ primary job responsibilities, it is critically important that they receive adequate training to prepare them for their additional safety and health responsibilities.
OSHA developed OSHA #6005 Collateral Duty Course for Other Federal Agencies to address the specific needs and requirements of collateral duty safety and health personnel and certified occupational safety and health committee members. The course covers a wide range of safety topics, including:
- Fire Prevention/Protection
- Hazard Communication
- Hazardous Materials
- Industrial Hygiene
- Personal Protective Equipment
- Walking and Working Surfaces
Federal agencies should consider bringing OSHA #6005 Collateral Duty Course for Other Federal Agencies on-site. Among the important advantages of on-site training are customization of the course to address the individual needs of each agency and the collaborative interaction of participants within the same agency and work teams during training.
