Department of Labor’s CONN-OSHA Plans Outreach Seminars for State, Municipal Employers

For immediate release
November 1, 2010

WETHERSFIELD – Employees with the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health are taking the show “on the road” in November and December to meet with state and municipal agency employers and inform them about the variety of tools and services CONN-OSHA can provide to a community. A series of six outreach seminars, titled How We Can Help You? will be held from 8 a.m. to noon in locations throughout the state. The free seminars will be offered on the following dates: 

  • November 3:  The Courtyard by Marriott, 63 Grand St., Waterbury

  • November 5:  Omni Hotels, 155 Temple St., New Haven

  • November 10: Nathan Hale Inn, 855 Bolton Rd., Storrs/Mansfield

  • November 17: The Hilton Mystic, 20 Coogan Blvd., Mystic

  • November 19: The Courtyard by Marriott, 3 Eagle Rd., Danbury

  • December 17: The Norwalk Inn & Conference Center, 99 East Ave., Norwalk

“Our goal is to meet one-on-one with employers throughout the state to better inform them of the many programs and services CONN-OSHA can provide for them,” explains CONN-OSHA Safety Training Specialist Catherine Zinsser. “Those benefiting from these sessions include public officials, members of area Boards of Education, Risk/Loss Control personnel, controllers, business and facility managers, members of safety committees at local companies, and anyone having on-the-job OSHA-related responsibilities.” 

Outreach sessions will begin with registration and a continental breakfast followed by a general discussion period with a CONN-OSHA representative. Attendees will also learn about CONN-OSHA’s free consultation program in which a CONN-OSHA representative pays an onsite visit to a company’s facility and advises employers and employees about safety and health procedures being used at the site. 

For additional information about the outreach seminars or to register, please contact Catherine Zinsser, by email at zinsser.catherine@dol.gov, or via fax at (860) 263-6940.
