Tempe, AZ - The Western OSHA Education Center, a part of the Del E. Webb School of Construction at Arizona State University, has completed its first OSHA 511 Course. This general industry standards course was held at ASU's Skysong campus, and instruction was lead by Jack Podojil. Participants spent four days learning the standards contained in CFR 1910, OSHA Standards for General Industry. Instruction was also provided for the various consensus standards referenced in the 1910 standards, and the course made extensive use of hands-on equipment to learn how to apply the standards to a workplace hazard assessment. By the end of the course participants were able to successfully review a simulated workplace and apply applicable standards in order to assess the workplace's compliance.



"In this course I really learned that there is no reason to wonder if your workplace is in compliance with OSHA standards. We really learned how to navigate the standards and to find and apply the answers to our questions."




ASU's OSHA Training Institute Education Center has a continuing schedule of courses throughout the remainder of 2013. Go to http://osha.asu.edu and click on "courses" to view the current schedule of events.
