Gotta Love OSHA Courses That Include Beer Breaks

An undercover reporter for New York’s Daily News recently paid $125 to attend an OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) 10-hour training class.

The class was over in 2 hours, 17 minutes. Held above a Bronx bar, the course enabled several of the attendees to slip away on breaktime to sip beers downstairs.

Nice gig if you can get it. I suppose all the attendees were awarded OSHA course completion certificates at the conclusion.

(Mind you, these courses are not run by OSHA, but by OSHA-certified trainers.)

When pressed, OSHA said it was looking into the matter. Will that include sampling the available beers at the site? Gotta make sure that the bar has its proper OSHA notifications posted.
