Hoosier companies and public works departments in need of health and safety training for their employees now have an opportunity to save money with INSafe scholarships available through a partnership between Team Quality Services,Inc., of Auburn, and the Indiana Department of Labor (DOL). The courses are being offered at five locations around the state to help Hoosier businesses create and maintain safe and healthy workplace environments that are compliant with the standards of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Both 10-hour and 30-hour OSHA training is available in the areas of construction or general industry. For more information on topics and dates,view the list of upcoming training sessions at the various Indiana locations that is included on second page of this announcement. A limited number of full-course INSafe scholarships is available to Indiana businesses that employ 250 or fewer employees, as well as to woman-owned businesses, minority-owned businesses and public sector workforces. Successful applicants will receive a fully-paid scholarship that will include course registration and materials. These scholarships,which are being made possible by the Indiana DOL as part of a goal to increase its occupational safety and health training reach throughout the state,provide critical training to employers and employees who may otherwise not be able to afford to participate in these training courses. Interested individuals may apply for the scholarships through the Team Quality website: teamqualityservices.com/insafe-application  Team Quality Services worked closely with the Indiana Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) to identify the INSafe contract opportunity as well as training space throughout the state. The PTAC coordinated with the Indiana Small Business Development Center (ISBDC} network to allow Team Quality Services to utilize training facilities at the various ISBDC regional centers.”Utilizing resources the State already has paid for only makes sense,” commented Chris Straw, president ofTeam Quality Services. Team Quality Services also brought in the help of Safer Worker Systems,a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), to assist in execution of the contract. “I am excited to work together with Team Quality Services to promote safety throughout Indiana,” said Thomas Black, owner of Safer Worker Systems, which is based in Fort Wayne.
