DWS Announces a New Beginning in Safety and Workforce Training

Department of Workforce Services Announces a New Beginning in Safety and Workforce Training

DWS, having organized the annual Workforce and Safety Summit for almost two decades, has adapted to changing preferences and circumstances by launching the Virtual Training Series and the OSHA Roadshow. Customer feedback from a 2023 survey highlighted interests in areas such as employee recruitment, safety, and specific training needs.

The Virtual Training Series, held monthly, offers hour-long sessions covering various topics relevant to employers and job seekers. These sessions are free but require registration. Topics include workers’ compensation, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s charge processing system, mental health in the workplace, and typical cybersecurity practices, among others. 

CyberWyoming will give the Typical Security Practices to Add to Your Employee Manual webinar in October. The scheduled webinars are listed below.


The OSHA Roadshow focuses on reducing construction-related incidents, particularly those related to the “Fatal Four” hazards. Scheduled for May 14-15 in Afton, WY.

Workshops include:

  • Excavation Safety Competent Person
  • Fall Protection Awareness Training
  • Competent Person for Fall Protection Equipment Inspection
  • Construction Focus Four: Electrocution Hazards
