reaction to our earlier sessions has been excellent and the attendance quite
good,” she notes. “Our goal is to meet one-on-one with employers throughout the
state to better inform them of the many programs and services that CONN-OSHA can
provide to them.
our consultation program for example – a CONN-OSHA employee can provide an
onsite visit to an employer’s worksite and make recommendations about ways they
can better improve health and safety practices and procedures there – all at no
cost. Under this program, no fines are imposed or violations assessed.” Zinsser
added that CONN-OSHA also sponsors a number of informative workshops on such
topics as recordkeeping and the lockout/tagout procedure throughout the year.
Earlier outreach seminars were held at
the Waterbury Courtyard by Marriott on Nov. 3. The Omni Hotel in New Haven on
Nov. 5, the Nathan Hale Inn in Storrs/Mansfield on Nov. 10, the Hilton Mystic on
Nov. 17, and the Danbury Courtyard by Marriott on Nov. 19.
