WJ maintenance completes OSHA course

Employees of the Town of West Jefferson recently completed a 10-hour OSHA General Industry Training Class. The training program is intended to provide entry level general industry workers information about their rights, employer responsibilities and how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job related hazards and injuries on the job. The training covers a variety of general industry safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter. Training emphasized hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention. This is the first town in the Wilkes Community College service area to complete the OSHA 10 training.
