National Safety Council Adds Two New ‘OSHA Walkthrough’ Training Programs

January 5, 2009

ITASCA, Ill., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The National Safety
Council (NSC) is introducing two new versions of the OSHA Walkthrough for
Industry training program. Like the original program, these versions are great
for educating new employees or refreshing the expertise of seasoned staff.

The NSC’s original OSHA Walkthrough for Industry covers 22 regulatory
topics using content from the U.S Occupational Safety & Health
Administration’s 10-hour training program. The NSC program features an
animated character to present lessons and quizzes in an interactive,
entertaining manner that enhances retention. New versions include:

    -- An intranet program with all the original content, designed for use on
       a company's internal website. Companies can make training available
       round the clock to anyone with access to the site. This version is
       ideal for minimizing costs and avoiding scheduling difficulties.
    -- A CD series that devotes one CD each to the top seven topics in demand
       from the original OSHA Walkthrough for Industry. This version is ideal
       for companies or departments needing safety training on specific
       subjects. Topics include Hazard Communication, Preparing for OSHA
       Inspection, Lockout/Tagout, Recordkeeping, Electrical, Means of Egress
       and Walking/Working Surfaces.

All of the OSHA Walkthrough versions complement NSC’s 15 OSHA Compliance
courses and can enhance self-study or classroom training. For pricing and
ordering information, visit http://www.oshawalkthrough.com/nsc/, contact
