Hazard Communication - 1910.1200
OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) – 29 CFR 1910.1200 provides workers exposed to hazardous chemicals with the right-to-know the identities and hazards of those materials, as well as appropriate protective measures. When workers have such information, they are able to take steps to protect themselves from experiencing adverse effects from exposure. This course includes GHS standards for adopted Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
Bloodborne Pathogens - 1910.1030
This course is a training program designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge to help reduce or eliminate the occupational risk of bloodborne pathogens in various workplace and healthcare settings. The goal of this course is to help students understand the risks and develop behaviors to help protect them when exposed to potentially infectious materials, such as blood.
Hearing Conservation - 1910.35
OSHA’s hearing conservation program is designed to protect workers with significant occupational noise exposures from hearing impairment even if they are subject to such noise exposures over their entire working lifetimes. This course summarizes the required components of OSHA’s hearing conservation program for general industry. It covers monitoring, audiometric testing, hearing protectors, training, and recordkeeping requirements.
Respiratory Protection - 1910.134
Anyone who wears a respirator including some paper masks must be trained prior to wearing the respirator. The course helps to satisfy this OSHA requirement and provides information to help you select the correct respirator, understand how to protect yourself, clean and maintain your equipment and what other requirements OSHA places on those who wear respirators. Our Respiratory Protection course satisfies the initial training requirements or can be taken as an OSHA Respiratory Protection refresher training course which is required annually.
Hazardous Materials (HazMat) Awareness - 1910.120
Participants will learn how to recognize a hazardous materials release and the risks involved. They will also learn how to identify the released material; how to use available resources, including the Emergency Response Guidebook; and how to notify the proper authorities in the event of a hazardous material emergency.
Introduction to Safe Patient Handling
Hospitals have high rates of non-fatal occupational injuries and illnesses. Nearly 50 percent of injuries and illnesses among nurses and nursing support staff were musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Hospitals can address the biggest cause of workplace injuries with a comprehensive program to promote safe lifting, repositioning, and transfer of patients. This awareness course will help you identify how and when to request assistance for patient handling.
Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout) - 1910.147
This important course focuses on the requirements of the Energy Control Program, commonly called the Lockout/Tagout Program. When lockout/tagout is not performed correctly, it usually results in a serious injury or fatality. With lockout/tagout being OSHA’s fifth most commonly cited violation, this course is a must for any employee who is responsible for servicing and maintaining equipment or machinery.
Confined Space Awareness - 1910.146
Employees who work in confined spaces face increased risk of serious physical injury. Hazards involving a confined space include entrapment, engulfment, and dangerous atmospheric conditions. As a result, employees who conduct work within confined spaces must be properly trained. This course presents information on the definition of a confined space, hazards of a permit-required confined space, and alternative procedures to control atmospheric hazards. The written program and entry permit system, rescue and emergency services, and importance of training are also discussed.
Introduction to Ergonomics
When performing work in awkward postures or with excessive effort, you may experience fatigue, discomfort, and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The basic principles of ergonomics introduced in this course should be a vital component in every industry. This is especially true in the manufacturing, retail, and service industries where there is an increased rate and cost of ergonomic injuries. The main components in this course include risk factor identification, basic workstation design options, and hazard control strategies to eliminate or reduce those risk factors.
Work-related slip, trip, and fall (STF) incidents can frequently result in serious, disabling injuries for workers. They can impact an employees ability to do his or her job. Slips, trips, and falls are preventable. This course also provides guidance on implementing a STF prevention program to protect workers. The goal of this course is to familiarize you with common STF hazards in workplaces/facilities so you are able to recognize and reduce the risk to employees.
