We build alliances with Kentucky employers to promote worker safety through
high-quality education and technical assistance.

We are seeking an environment where employees can complete their work day and go home uninjured, as healthy as when they started the work day. To accomplish this, it is essential to increase awareness of the services that the Kentucky Occupational Safety and Health Division of Education and Training offers, to provide FREE safety and health training to more employers and employees and provide FREE confidential safety and health consultation services to facilities and organizations or groups requesting those services.
