This course introduces the student to the various types of mobile cranes and tower cranes used in construction operations. Students are provided with intermediate information concerning crane operations, crane inspection and maintenance, rigging inspection, reading load charts, and corresponding OSHA and consensus standards. Exercises in applying OSHA and ANSI standards, reading load charts and rigging tables, and preventing accidents are conducted. 


This course introduces the student to machinery operations and the related safety standards. The course focuses on the hazards associated with various primary types of machinery and the control of hazardous energy sources (lockout/ tagout).  The course focuses on hazards created by mechanical motions and actions, points of operation, and other machinery processes. Hands-on training in the student's own company equipment provide opportunities to learn on specific operations.


Scaffolding: This course focuses on the safety aspects of scaffolding and current OSHA requirements.  The student is introduced to the basics of scaffolding operations from installation to dismantling. Topics include supported and suspended scaffolds, aerial lifts, and the interpretation of related standards. Installation and dismantling methods are demonstrated.


Tower Safety: This course is designed to assist OSHA personnel in recognizing the hazards associated with the construction and maintenance of communications towers.  Emphasis is placed on acceptable abatement methods, applicable standards, and the implementation of Interim Inspection Procedures During Communication Tower Construction Activities. Course features a one-day field exercise demonstrating tower erection and safety.

30-hour construction OUTREACH SAFETY TRAINING

A comprehensive safety program designed for anyone involved in the construction industry. Specifically devised for safety directors, foremen, and field supervisors. OSHA recommends safety training programs as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers covered by OSHA 29 CFR 1926. Construction workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on specific hazards of the job. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a 30-hour Construction Safety Certification Training completion card that can printed upon completion of the course. 


HAZWOPER is an acronym which stands for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.  HAZWOPER training is covered under OSHA standard 29 CFR Part 1910.120. According to OSHA, the HAZWOPER standard applies to five groups of employers and their employees and specifically includes any employees who are exposed to hazardous substances and who are engaged in several operations including clean-up, treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous waste. In addition, workers involved in an emergency response operation dealing with hazardous waste and workers who have to perform duties at a waste site where hazardous contamination are equally expected to be fully trained and protected. 


Employees and employers covered by the OSHA HAZWOPER standard are required to take the initial HAZWOPER training which consists of a 24 or 40-hour course. Depending on your job type and experience, you may be able to take the 24-hour course to meet your HAZWOPER training requirement.

Every year after the initial training requirement has been met, workers are required to take an 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher course. This refresher course is designed to meet the annual training requirement for hazardous waste operations and emergency response workers.


The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is OSHA's way of ensuring safety to employees who potentially come in contact with hazardous chemicals. Those who manufacture or import chemicals must assess their hazards, as well as create labels and safety data sheets (SDS) that inform their customers of the potential dangers. Workplaces that contain hazardous chemicals must have clearly displayed labels and supply the SDS to employees who may come in contact with them. Employees must also be trained on proper handling of hazardous chemicals.

OSHA has chosen to align their Hazard Communication Standard with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The goal is to improve the "quality and consistency of hazard information, making it safer for workers to do their jobs and easier for employers to stay competitive," says U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis.

The new Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is a standardized system of identifying hazardous chemicals and it is used internationally. These standards have been created over several years in collaboration between hazard communication experts from across the globe, including representatives from OSHA.  Compliance by employers with the GHS standards has been required since June 1, 2015, no distributor can ship chemical containers unless it has a GHS compliant label.
