Accident Investigation 101 teaches employees steps that are taken in an accident investigation. It also points out that while an investigation’s focus is to determine the cause of an accident, the overall goal is to prevent similar accidents from happening again. The Program includes information on the goals of an accident investigation, securing an accident scene, “root-cause” analysis, the importance of investigative interviews, assisting in an accident investigation, the importance of warning signs in accident prevention, reporting the “near misses”, the role of policies, equipment and training on accident prevention, and more.

Accident Prevention 101 demonstrates to employees how to prevent workplace accidents by paying attention to safe housekeeping practices. Good safe housekeeping can significantly reduce accidents and injuries in any type of work environment. By developing good safety habits, and by being aware of their work environment and any hazards associated with it, employees can help to create a much safer workplace. The Program includes information on safety awareness, handling excess materials, keeping aisles and stairways clean, using ropes and electric cords, dealing with hazardous chemicals, tool maintenance, proper tool storage, and more.

Asbestos Awareness was created specifically to educate employees about the dangers of working with materials that may contain Asbestos. In August of 1994, OSHA issued 29 CFR 1910.1101… “Occupational Exposure to Asbestos.” This regulation requires that all employees who could come into contact with materials that might contain Asbestos be given appropriate training on working safely in these situations. Employees are divided into four classes. Classes I – III are employees whose work involves “installing” or “disturbing” materials that might contain Asbestos. However, the largest group of employees covered by this regulation fall into the Class IV group, which involves employees that get involved in… “maintenance and custodial activities to clean up waste and debris containing these type of materials.” Since many materials commonly used in buildings for many years (including ceiling tiles, vinyl flooring, and wall and pipe insulation) contain Asbestos, this means that the regulation applies to virtually every custodial, janitorial and maintenance worker in the country. This training provides the majority of the information needed to satisfy the training requirements for Class IV employees under the OSHA regulation. The Program includes information on hazards of asbestos, OSHA’s asbestos standard, composition and nature of asbestos, types of materials that may contain asbestos, and where they are encountered, limiting exposure to asbestos, how to protect yourself when disturbing a material that may contain asbestos, air monitoring and decontamination, and more.
Back Safety training emphasizes the importance of overall back care, both at work and at home, including exercises and weight control. For many employees, back injuries are something that “happens to the other person… not to me.” Yet four out of five people will experience some type of back problems during their lives. And many back injuries are caused by common activities experienced both on and off the job… such as lifting, climbing, reaching, etc. The Program includes information on how the back works, common types and causes of back injuries, effects of back injuries, injury prevention and safety practices, proper lifting techniques, basic back exercises, and more.
Basic Crane Safety discusses the many different types of Cranes, and how they all have the ability to make many jobs much easier by lifting enormous weight. But they also share the potential for disaster when they are not operated safely. Crane-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the cumbersome and heavy loads that are lifted. Training includes information equipment inspection, hazard assessment, boom cranes, jib cranes, overhead cranes, general and operational safety devices, crane operations, hand signals, and more.
Bloodborne Pathogens is designed to meet the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard’s (29 CFR Part 1910.1030) training requirements. Bloodborne diseases are a serious concern in the United States. “Hepatitis B” infects over 70,000 people annually, and has over one million “carriers” in the U.S. The HIV virus, which usually leads to AIDS, currently infects over one million people. Because of the increasing problems with these diseases, in 1991 OSHA passed a “Bloodborne Pathogens” regulation.
Understanding Chemical Hazards HAZWOPER Compliance Training Program… part of the HAZWOPER Annual Retraining Series… introduces employees to chemical hazard regulations and provides training on the various types of hazardous chemicals found in industrial environments. Hazardous materials and waste are part of many work situations, and can be found on many types of job sites. OSHA feels that it is so important for employees to know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances (as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly) they have mandated that anyone working with these substances receive comprehensive training in this area. In 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste “from cradle to grave”. Since then other regulations have followed, including OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.120, also known as HAZWOPER. As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on an employee’s specific level of involvement with hazardous materials. Areas covered in the program include chemical hazard concepts, types of hazardous chemicals, characteristics and effects of various types of chemicals, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), container labeling, safe handling practices, use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), spills and cleanup, and more. The Program includes Lecture, Video, Employee Handouts, Employee Quiz, and Employee Training Certificates…. and is approximately two hours of classroom training.

HAZWOPER is designed to explain the regulations and to help employees begin to reduce or eliminate potential exposure to hazardous materials in their work environments. Hazardous materials and Waste are part of many work situations, and can be found on many types of job sites. It is so important that employees know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances, as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly, that OSHA mandates that anyone working with these substances receive comprehensive training in this area. As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on an employee’s specific level of involvement with hazardous materials. Areas covered in the program include history of the HAZWOPER regulations, definitions of hazardous chemicals and waste, container labels, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs), the site safety and health plan, HAZWOPER training requirements, the site control program, monitoring of hazardous substances, the medical surveillance program, decontamination, and more.

American CPR Training’s “Respiratory Safety” Program points out to employees why it is important that they learn to recognize… and guard against… respiratory hazards. Both OSHA and NIOSH have recently issued changes to their Respiratory Protection Training Requirements. This revised and updated program includes those changes… such as new fit testing protocols and cleaning/disinfecting procedures… as well as shows examples of the new “N” class respirator and other respirators being used in a variety of settings. One of the problems with many respiratory hazards (such as fumes or gases) is that employees can not easily “see” them. Even more visible hazards, such as dusts, are often accepted as part of a “normal” work environment. As a result, many respiratory problems only become clearly evident well after the original exposure. Yet once they occur, most respiratory problems are “chronic” and long lasting. The Program includes information on the physiology of the human respiratory system, how the respiratory system functions, common causes of respiratory problems, potential effects of hazards, respiratory safety practices, the use of respiratory safety equipment, and more. The Program includes Lecture, Video, Employee Handouts, Employee Quiz, and Employee Training Certificates.
