July 21, 2014 4:00AM EDT

A Strong Safety Attitude Begins with You!

Course Type: Online

Course Description: The FEOSH Annual Training provides pertinent information and resources for employees about workplace hazards and how these hazards are to be reported.  When employees participate in identifying and controlling hazards, the overall level of safety and health in the workplace and at home is greatly improved.
Topics for this year’s training cover issues that affect our daily lives at work and at home.  Topics include workplace hazards, including slips, trips, falls, electrical hazards, stress reduction, and telework.  Employees are required to complete the entire course to receive credit.

Requirements:  Presidential Executive Order 12196, Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970; and 29 CFR 1960, Elements for Federal Employee Occupational Safety and Health Program, require Federal Agencies to develop and implement a safety and health program to protect its Federal workforce from workplace hazards.

Audience: All Department of Energy (DOE) Federal employees.  Contractor and subcontractor employees are required to complete this training course only if their employer has elected to comply with title 10 Code of Federal Regulations, part 851 (10 CFR 851) by adopting DOE’s Federal Employee Occupational Safety and Health (FEOSH) program.
