Area businesses attend OSHA course

Prople in the Pine Belt are helping make their workplaces safer through

a 30-hour Occupational Safety and Health Administration course at Jones County Junior College's advanced technology center.

The General Industry Standards Program focuses on understanding and applying OSHA regulations. Employees from several South Mississippi companies are attending this training.

"Hopefully they'll go back to their workplace and be able to apply this and put together a safety system that will work for their company in keeping their employees safe," said Ben Rosenkrans, OSHA outreach trainer.

People attending also discussed how to effectively manage workplace safety.
