Washington, DC - The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today issued a Request for Information (RFI) to consider Online Outreach Training Program Consortiums, a new model to administer online classes for the Outreach Training Program.
The consortiums would consist of three or four collaborators.
A three-collaborator consortium would include OSHA, an OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center, and an online provider.
Four-collaborator consortiums would add a stakeholder organization that is interested in developing and offering online outreach training to only their members (e.g. labor unions, associations, or employers).
Each consortium member would have specific responsibilities under a formal consortium agreement.
OSHA is requesting information and comment on the proposed model, including:
OSHA will use the information collected to assess whether the new model would address issues associated with the existing online model.
Comments and materials may be submitted electronically at http://www.regulations.gov, the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal, or by facsimile or mail.
See the Federal Register notice for submission details.
