Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.
|The purpose of this bill is to require onsite employees working on public works construction projects to complete ten hours of an Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA)approved safety program prior to beginning work. There should be minimal fiscal impact to the Department of Administration as long as the vendors self-certify to the Purchasing Division that their workers have completed the required safety training. Additionally, there would be no fiscal impact to the Department of Administration's General Services Division as the bill exempts government employees.|

3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
The estimated cost of attending the safety training is $100.00 per employee. The Department of Administration has no way of knowing how many employees would be required to take the training. However, it is anticipated that the companies who perform work for the State of West Virginia would pass any costs associated with the training on to the State when bidding on the projects.
