Training is offered in both English and Spanish for all osha regulated industries.
OSHA 10 & 30 - These are 10 hour and 30 hour online training that is available.
MSHA 8 hour Surface Mine Training
The MSHA enforces compliance with mandatory health and safety standards as a means reducing the severity and frequency of nonfatal accidents, minimizing health risks, and eliminating fatal accidents.
Steel Erection for Connectors & Decking Operations
Constructing steel frame buildings carries with it high risk. Work-related accidents from steel frame buildings are 16 times higher than the rest of the construction industry. Safety training and awareness of fall protection issues are required for all who work on decking operations. There are two forms of danger. One is falling. The other is from equipment collapses. Other problems come from loss of balance, slips, unhooked lanyards while changing positions, being struck by falling items or girders, falling through deck holes or accidents from unstable structures.
The solution is a preventative one. Reducing and eliminating hazards requires preplanning and training. Proactive solutions make a job more cost effective. Since buildings are not designed to be fully stable until they are complete, employees must be made aware of unstable conditions at various points of construction. Being aware of wind and weather conditions is part of the safety training as well.
Fall protection involves planning for problems in advance. Hazards must be eliminated when possible, or managed carefully. By making employees aware of unsafe conditions, they can prevent accidents or take corrective actions. It is necessary to identify all fall hazards at a work site.
CP Confined Space
When working in a confined space, a Competent Person who is OSHA trained must be able to identify and predictable hazards and take corrective measures against them. Many workers are killed each year working in confined spaces. Some of those killed are co-workers who went to rescue a fellow worker. Safety and regulations regarding the confined spaces in your industry are discussed.
CP Trench & Excavation
Excavation and trenching are hazardous construction operations. A trench is defined as something that is deeper than it is wide. An excavation is any man-made cavity created by earth removal. Cave-ins, falling loads, hazardous atmospheres, and falls cause hundreds of injuries yearly at excavation and trenching sites. Learn what constitutes a protected and unprotected trench. Factors affecting trenches are soil type, water content, depth of the trench, and the climate. There are rules regarding access and egress, steps, ramps and general rules regarding heavy equipment. There must be knowledge of underground lines. There must be testing for toxic fumes. Trenches must be inspected prior to each shift and following a rain storm by a Competent Person. These factors and more are covered in our safety classes.
There are different kinds of scissor lifts: hydraulic, pneumatic, or mechanical. Training is given for the usage and safety of each of them.
Aerial lifts are similar to cranes. They are useful in indoors applications and in courtyards, where heavier equipment cannot be used. They are used extensive in the power and communications industries, as well in arboriculture.
Forklifts are a familiar and indispensable piece of equipment in warehouses. They are designed to move materials short distances. We cover safety and equipment maintenance.
Scaffolding is a temporary structure the purpose of which is to support a work crew for either construction or maintenance of buildings, bridges, and other structures. There are four different main types of scaffolding, as well as specialty scaffolding.
Swing Stage Scaffold
A swing stage scaffold is a suspended scaffold that can be raised or lowered. It must be erected by a licensed individual. It should be appropriate for the location and purpose for which it is used.
CPR & First Aid
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency procedure to help someone in cardiac arrest. It is an attempt to preserve brain function until the paramedics arrive and until independent breathing and circulation resume. First Aid is training in what to do in many different kinds of accident scenarios.
Train the Trainer Drug & Alcohol Testing
This is complete training regarding who may collect specimens, the material s used for collection, where the collection occurs, the preparation of samples, how to complete the process, and other related details such as confidentiality and release of gathered data.
In summary, safety is a culture. It is a “work way of life”, each day, every day. We seek to create a culture of safety for employee health and to improve the bottom line. We stay current with OSHA requirements and because we stay current, you stay current as well. We have personnel who can help with surprise OSHA inspections. We are here 24/7 if you need us.
There are thousands of dollars of fines per year handed out to companies that are not compliant with OSHA standards. Being in line with OSHA standards protects the bottom line. It reduces worker injury costs and lawsuits. It provides compliance with government agencies. Ultimately, it increases your reputation as being a company with a culture for safety, and that increases your bottom line.
