Safe and healthy buildings lead to safe and healthy occupants. These courses are a great way for building owners, managers and tenants to learn how to make the conditions in their buildings better for everyone.
Fires injure or kill thousands of workers annually. Those are the losses due to fires, but there are other hazardous situations that can threaten the life and health of a worker. These situations include severe weather, medical emergencies, chemical releases, and bomb threats. We cannot completely eliminate dangerous workplace situations, but we can reduce the number of associated injuries and deaths. This course will focus on two important aspects of this effort. Ideal learners are all employees.
An arc flash can generate a temperature of up to 19,000 degrees Celsius (35,000 degrees Fahrenheit)! Working in or near electrical panels and systems increases your chance of exposure to an arc flash. It requires that you take extreme precautions. This course will provide information to help protect you from this deadly hazard that cannot be seen or heard, until it is too late. Ideal learners are qualified and unqualified electrical personnel (employees and managers) in a variety of industries with an emphasis on general industry maintenance and fabrication settings.
Working with electricity can be dangerous. Workers performing service or maintenance on machinery and equipment may be injured by the unexpected startup of the machinery or equipment, or release of stored electrical energy in the equipment. In fact, failure to lock out machinery before working on it is a major cause of injury and death. These deaths and injuries can be prevented by establishing and following an effective lockout/tagout program. This training will tell you more about electrical hazards, safe practices when working with electricity, and the lockout/tagout program and how it can save your life. Ideal learners are any employee who works on or around electrical machinery.
In the event of an emergency in a multi-story building, all occupants need to know what to do, where to go and who is in charge. This course will provide you with the information you need to safely evacuate a multi-story building in case of an emergency.
This course provides a general understanding of how our daily work activities can potentially alter environmental balances. By being more aware of this, we can act responsibly to protect our communities, air, water, land and ourselves. Ideal learners are all employees.
Each year, many workers are hurt or killed as a result of falls in the workplace. Falls are usually complex events that involve a variety of factors.
