Workers are near hazardous chemical products every day. This poses serious problems for workers and their employers. Hazard Communication (HazCom) training is designed to provide workers with the information they need to recognize and avoid exposure to hazardous chemicals. This course will introduce learners to the HazCom Standard as well as demonstrate how Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and chemical labels help workers to prepare for hazards and react to exposures.
Obviously, falling off a ladder can injure you. But did you know that falling just 4 feet (or 1 meter) can actually kill you? If there is ever a chance you will use a ladder at work, you need to use it safely. This program covers the types of ladders as well as guidelines for proper ladder safety and inspection. Ideal learners include all employees who use ladders.
Not everything we have to work on is within reach. There are times we need a little help. Sometimes ladders are chosen, other times fixed scaffolds, and still other times mobile equipment like aerial lifts (also referred to as an articulating boom or bucket lifts) and scissor lifts. Working safely with this last category will be the focus of this course. Ideal learners include employees who work on or around aerial lifts and scissor lifts.
Inhalation is the most common way chemicals enter the body. Therefore, understanding and complying with the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard could prevent hundreds of deaths and thousands of illnesses annually. This training will present the basic requirements of the respiratory protection program and will focus on the types and limitations of respirators.
Contact with blood or other infectious materials puts you at risk for contracting potentially deadly, incurable diseases. Take this course to learn what bloodborne pathogens are, the risk they present, and general steps you should take to ensure your protection after potential exposure. This course is not intended to teach universal precautions. You need additional information, vaccinations/immunizations, and PPE to provide first aid or handle/clean up BBP and OPIM. Ideal learners include all workers.
Every year, approximately 30 million people in the U.S. are exposed to hazardous noise on the job. Damage to your hearing caused by hazardous noise exposure is PERMANENT. The good news is that noise-induced hearing loss is fully preventable.
