Alaska OSHA Safety Training Courses

Alaska OSHA Training Requirements

In Alaska, some companies require their employees to take OSHA training in order to be qualified to perform certain duties. However, whatever industry you work for in Alaska - taking an OSHA Training Course is a low cost investment that rewards you with essential job safety practices that could one day possibly save your life. Most workplace accidents and injuries are preventable, so that's why more workers are taking a proactive step towards occupational safety training. (Choose course in right column.)

HAZWOPER Training Required
The Federal OSHA HAZWOPER Standard (29 CFR Part 1910.120) - requires that all employees that are exposed to or handle hazardous materials must take a 24hr or 40hr HAZWOPER Training Course and an 8hr Annual Refresher, at a level required by their job function and responsibility, before they are permitted to engage in hazardous waste operations that could expose them to hazardous substances.


Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development

The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development conducts annual surveys of workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses.

The Alaska Division of Labor Standards and Safety - Occupational Safety and Health Section (AKOSH) is the agency focused on reducing occupational fatalities, injuries and illnesses. It aims to protect Alaska workers from industrial accidents and job-related illness through the enforcement of state and federal standards, and by training employers and employees to follow safe and healthful work practices. The section also administers certification programs for asbestos abatement, hazardous painting, and explosives handlers to assure this work is done safely.

The Enforcement Section performs inspections based on complaints and targeted programs and issues monetary citations for serious violations of standards. Services provided by AKOSH include consultation, training, enforcement, complaint procedures, and public notices of workplace facilities.

OSHA Labor Data - Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) - State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) Program - provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatal injuries, and how these statistics vary by incident, industry, geography, occupation, and other characteristics. This data is collected through two BLS programs:
  • SOII - BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
    The SOII provides estimates for nonfatal cases of work-related injuries and illnesses from 46 States and Territories that are recorded by employers under the Occupational safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) recordkeeping guidelines.
  • CFOI - BLS Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries
    The CFOI publishes data on fatal cases of work-related injuries for all States, Territories, and New York City.

For more information, check out the BLS State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities - Labor Programs and State data.

Alaska OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses

According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Alaska was in the production, transportation, and material moving occupations (Source). The main type of these fatalities is the vehicle backover (i.e., when a vehicle backs up and strikes a worker behind the vehicle).

For more information on backovers, OSHA's Preventing Backovers webpage provides information about the hazards of backovers; solutions that can reduce the risk or frequency of these incidents; articles and resources; and references to existing regulations.

Also very important to Alaska, The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association (AMSEA) provides marine safety training for commercial fishermen, subsistence & recreational boaters, and youth & women boaters throughout Alaska.

As with most states, the leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.
Source: OSHA Common Statistics Summaries

Falls deaths are preventable by a safety training class that covers 29 CFR 1926.500 - Subpart M – Fall Protection and deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards.
