OSH A Training Contracts The United States Department of Labor has awarded nine new contracts for job safety and health training and education projects totaling more than $2 million, Secretary of Labor Peter J. Brennan announced. This brings to $6.6 million expenditures of the department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration on current training and education contracts. Brennan said 16 contracts now under way are “evidence of OSHA’s priority efforts to train and educate employers and employees so they will be able to recognize and avoid, eliminate or reduce job safety hazards.” Among the contracts given out was a 20month contract with the National Fire Protection Association totaling $249,708, to develop and deliver maritime safety training to some 1000 “competent persons” designated by the industry.
