The Office of Risk Management (ORM) delivers Occupational Safety and Health Awareness (OSHA) training to District government employees. In past years, ORM and the Department of Human Resources (DCHR) have provided training to approximately 35 percent of the District government workforce in courses on fire safety and preventing slips and falls in the workplace. In Fiscal Year 2012, in an effort to further bring awareness and educate District government employees about OSHA standards and regulations, the Office of Risk Management will launch the Fiscal Year 2012 OSHA Employee Safety Awareness Program. The goal of the initiative is to establish safety awareness within all District government agencies and to ensure that ten percent of the workforce of each agency under the Mayor’s authority successfully completes a training course entitled, Introduction to OSHA. ORM will partner with other District government agencies to ensure that the training is accessible by creating multiple learning resources, including: online e-Learning, computer-based training and instructor-led training.
