Education

OSHA programs that improve safety now count for CCB continuing education

Oregon OSHA consultation services are free and confidential. Consultants in workplace safety, industrial hygiene and ergonomics can help you reduce accidents and related costs, and help you develop a comprehensive program to manage safety and health. You will receive a report listing the hazards identified along with Oregon OSHA recommendations for corrections.

And now you can satisfy all or part of your CCB continuing education credits when:

  • You receive an Oregon OSHA consultation AND
  • Provide proof that you corrected any serious hazards that were identified.


Specific consultation 

What: This is targeted consultation that covers a particular job or an aspect of a job to help you identify and correct hazards - fall protection, for example.
