Occupational Safety Training Focus Groups at Harper College

Small Business Employers and Workers – Tell Us about Your Workplace Safety and Health Training Needs

Do you own a small business with up to 250 employees or do you work for a small business like this?

If so, Harper College wants to learn more about your occupational safety and health training needs. In that effort, you are invited to attend one of our focus groups. Please choose the ONE date below that fits your schedule or let us know if a different date and time might be best for you.


The focus groups will explore the following topics:

  1. Your occupational safety and health training needs
  2. Challenges or barriers you face in getting the training you need
  3. Training topics most critical to meet your specific needs

Upcoming Focus Groups:

  • Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 1:30-3:00pm, W218
  • Friday, March 15, 2019, 2:00-3:30pm, W218

Your focus group feedback will be invaluable to us and from this the Continuing Education Department at Harper College will create free training courses. The first course will be offered during the summer semester. All focus groups will be held on the Harper College main campus* and light refreshments will be served. Once you respond, you will receive an email with directions to the College plus the building and room number of the focus group.

This exciting project is funded through OSHA’s Susan Harwood Training Grant Program, which provides training for workers and employers to recognize and reduce workplace safety and health hazards. There is no cost to participate in a focus group or upcoming training courses. Training courses developed under this grant may be offered in English, Spanish and American Sign Language at no cost to participants. Low-literacy, limited English proficiency, and high-hazard industry workers are welcome.

Choose your date to attend a focus group and RSVP via email to me at kkeegan@harpercollege.edu.

We value your time and thank you for considering this opportunity to help Harper College and its worker safety program.
