Confined Space Hazard Awareness (class)
Introduction to confined space hazards and confined space hazard awareness. This is an overview of confined space hazards and typical solutions to avoid issues when it comes to confined spaces on the jobsite.

Permit Required Confined Space Standard (seminar)
This course discusses the requirements of OSHA’s permit-required confined space standard, 29 CFR 1910.146. It is designed for small employers or a designated representative (line supervisor or manager) with the responsibility to develop a permit space program. It covers OSHA’s requirements but does not feature hand-on sections (instrumentation and control methods and testing)

Permit-required Confined Space Entry (comprehensive course)
This course will increase your knowledge of hazards associated with permit-required confined space entry. OSHA standards related to confined space entry will be covered including entry procedures, personal protective equipment, ventilation and purging requirements, calculations and techniques, and appropriate atmosphere testing equipment and related limitations. Participants will engage in hands-on training with explosion meters, oxygen meters, and other test equipment.

Learn to:

  • Define terms specific to permit-required confined space operations
  • Identify current standards governing permit-required confined space entry procedures
  • Describe hazards associated with permit spaces
  • Demonstrate the proper operation of certain testing instruments and explain their limitations
  • Describe appropriate ventilation, personal protective equipment, and emergency procedures necessary for entry into permit spaces

Topics covered:

  • Permit space hazards
  • Entry procedures
  • Ventilation requirements
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Permit system


Fall Hazard for General Industry (class)
 Introduction to fall hazards and fall hazard awareness.  An overview of fall protection hazards and typical solutions to avoid issues when it comes to falls on the jobsite.

Fall Hazard for General Industry (seminar)
The focus of this course is to identify, evaluate, and prevent or control fall hazards. This course focuses on falls to a lower level not falls to the same level resulting from slips and falls. The target audience is the small construction employer, business owner, or manager who would like to obtain information about fall hazards found in the workplace. The training is also suitable for employees and employee representatives. Topics include identifying fall hazards, analyzing fall hazards, and preventing fall hazards as well as OSHA resources addressing fall hazards.

Fall Protection (comprehensive course)
This course will familiarize participants with OSHA standards regarding fall protection as well as with the latest technology, equipment and methods to protect employees from falls. Specific topics include components of fall arrest systems and the limitations of fall arrest equipment as well as an emphasis on the most hazardous situations and most frequently cited OSHA violations.

Learn to:

  • Identify various types of fall protection and their components
  • Recognize fall hazards and identify abatement methods for fall hazards
  • Define the proper use of fall protection equipment and personal fall arrest systems

Topics covered:

  • 29 CFR 1926 Subpart M
  • Sample Fall Protection plans
  • Consensus standards and summaries
  • Fall hazard analysis
  • Fall accidents and fatalities

Lockout/Tagout Awareness (class)
Introduction to lockout/tagout. This is an overview of lockout/tagout that explores typical solutions for isolating energy.

Lockout/Tagout – Controlling Hazardous Energy (seminar)
Students will learn about the role and responsibility of the employer to develop and implement an energy control program, or lock-out/tag-out (LOTO) for the protection of workers while performing servicing and maintenance activities on machines and equipment. In addition, students will learn how to detect hazardous conditions and implement control measures as they relate to the control of hazardous energy. This course is also designed to assist students in the development and implementation of energy control programs, including written isolation procedures, training for authorized and affected employees, and periodic inspection of energy control procedures. Topics include the understanding and application of definitions relating to OSHA’s Control of Hazardous Energy Standard, types of hazardous energy, energy isolation options, written program requirements, and training guidelines. At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to explain the importance of energy control programs, procedures, training, audits and methods of controlling hazardous energy, and will demonstrate the knowledge and skills required to safely perform servicing and maintenance activities.

Health Hazard Awareness (class)
This course provides an introduction to common health hazards that are encountered in the workplace. These health hazards will include exposure to chemicals, asbestos, silica and lead. The course will feature these topics: identification of hazard; sources of exposure; health hazard information; evaluation of exposure; and engineering and work practice controls. The course materials will include an instructor and student manual; workshops and group activities; and PowerPoint presentations. The course is designed as an awareness course for employers and employees.

Respiratory Protection (seminar)
This course will teach participants how to establish, maintain, and monitor a respirator program following the OSHA requirements found in 29 CFR 1910.134. The proper selection and use of respiratory protection will be discussed and participants will learn to evaluate compliance with OSHA respiratory protection standards. Other specific topics include respiratory protection programs, fit testing, and respiratory protection equipment care and maintenance.
