New York State Funeral Directors Association

August 10, 2018

NYSFDA has scheduled four OSHA teleconferences for funeral home owners and staff to comply with federal education requirements.

WHO MUST PARTICIPATE? All funeral home employees, trade people and other independent contractors who work in or around the embalming room, or directly with bodies, or the effects of the deceased must have this training.

Several of the OSHA Standards that apply generally to funeral homes have an annual training requirement.

Participants will receive a Training Certificate indicating the information covered in the presentation and how that information satisfies these training requirements.

This session will specifically address the training requirements of the Bloodborne Pathogen, Hazard Communication and Formaldehyde Standards.

These certificates should be placed in employees’ personnel files and should be kept for a period of three years. Licensed funeral directors may also receive certification for one (1) hour of continuing education.

NOTE: You may only claim CE credit for OSHA once in the biennium.

This teleconference will be presented by Curtis D. Rostad, CAE, CFSP, FACFEI
