This workshop is one of WisCOSH‘s foundational trainings. All other workshops and programs WisCOSH provides assume you have already taken this class. WisCOSH also offers a version of this workshop targeted towards youth and teen workers.
In this workshop we will cover employer and worker rights and responsibilities under the Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1970 (OSH Act 1970), the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and other federal and state laws. The laws will be discussed and the rights and responsibilities they contain will be explained.
Participants will work individually and in small groups on activities related to workplace health and/or safety concerns and what rights – if any – are being violated as well as who is responsible. Methods of using workplace rights effectively will be discussed.
This workshop is usually 2 1/2 hours long over a single day and includes time for Q&A. Alternative class length can be discussed. All participants will receive reference materials and a Certificate of Completion.
