Occupational Health & Safety Training – OSHA

All employees have the right to a safe workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) was passed to prevent workers from being killed or seriously injured at work. The law requires employers to provide their employees with safe working conditions that are free of known dangers. The Act created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which sets and enforces workplace safety and health standards. OSHA also provides information, training and assistance to workers and employers. Workers may file a complaint to have OSHA inspect their workplace if they believe that their employer is not following OSHA standards or that there are serious hazards.

Many workplaces have hazards which pose a threat to worker Safety & Health. Workplace hazards vary significantly depending on the type of work being performed and environment the work is performed under. For example, constructions workers will may be exposed to fall hazards from working off the ground, while healthcare professionals may be exposed to bloodborne pathogens from sick patients. Hazards come in many forms, and it is important for you to know what a hazard is and how to protect yourself.

Once hazards have been identified in a workplace, it is important to establish systems to eliminate or reduce exposure to these hazards. Hazard controls do just that. To help approach hazard controls, a hierarchy of control strategies has been developed. In this module of the course, each of the hazard control strategies is described.

Confined Space Entry Training 8-Hour – $159

Those employees working in confined spaces, area of limited space and accessibility, are the right people to take up this training course. Confined spaces could be those that have a potential for a specific hazard to be present, allowance for only one person to perform a task assigned, restricted means of entry and exit, or those areas that are not designed for continuous occupancy. Examples of those areas are: inside of a fluid storage tank or boiler, a utility tunnel, a septic tank with contained sewage, etc.

Confined Space Entry Training is based on permit-required confined space standards on the OSHA 1910.146. Along with the characteristics listed above, permit-required confined spaces may have one of the following or more: potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere contains material that may have potential for engulfing an entrant, has an internal configuration that can trap an entrant, or may contain any serious safety or health hazard.

Employees working in the following line of work should seek to take up the Confined Space Entry Training:

  • In the Construction Industry
  • Petrochemical Industry
  • Oil and Gas Industry
  • Manufacturing Industry
  • Utility and Speciality Industry

The main learning outcome of the Confined Space Entry Training Course is:

  • Identifying confined space
  • Use of proper equipment
  • Hazard training and personnel requirements
  • Permit-required space program
  • Rescue and Emergency services
  • OSHA regulations.
