FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 19, 2012) – The Kentucky Labor Cabinet and Louisville Metro Government are collaborating to provide safety and health training to approximately 120 employees of the Louisville Metro Government.
“The training will provide public works employees with safety and health information and provide safety awareness while performing their job duties,” said Labor Cabinet Secretary Mark Brown. “This is an excellent opportunity for the Labor Cabinet to reach out to public sector employees in the state’s largest city to ensure the employees get the training they need at no cost to the city.”
Brown added that the goals of the state-city partnership are to build a long-term relationship with Louisville Metro employees, offer cost-effective training, and help government employees recognize potential hazards that may cause harm to the public.
Classes begin today. Class topics include an overview of Kentucky’s occupational safety and health program and electrical safety. Additional classes will be conducted the third Thursday of each month for the next six months.
