Alaska Occupational Safety and Health (AKOSH)

Services

Services provided by the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health Section (AKOSH) are focused on reducing occupational fatalities, injuries and illnesses. Reducing workplace accidents can have a significant impact on the high cost of doing business in the state. The Enforcement Section performs inspections based on complaints and targeted programs and issues monetary citations for serious violations of standards. The Consultation and Training Section provides assistance to employers in a non-threatening environment to identify and eliminate serious workplace hazards. In addition to worksite inspections and training, AKOSH certifies training courses for asbestos abatement workers, explosive handlers and persons who apply hazardous paint.

Consultation and Training - 1-800-656-4972

Employers can request on-site training to fit specific needs of their companies by filling out and submitting the online request sheet. These trainings are confidential and are cost-free evaluations of the worksite. Assistance with eliminating and reducing workplace hazards are the main benefits of these consultation trainings.
