Construction Health and Safety Compliance 7HR CE


COURSE DESCRIPTION

1. Controlling Hazardous Energy. (35 Minutes) This training program covers Lockout/Tagout procedures for the use of appropriate lockout or tagout devices designed to isolate or disable equipment in order to prevent unexpected start up or release of stored energy, causing injury to employees.

2. Fall Protection. (60 Minutes) Falls are one of the most common types of serious injuries and deaths. Employers are responsible for maintaining a safe working environment, but when fall protection devices are impractical, personal fall protection equipment may be used. This course outlines the standard equipment use, maintenance and inspection requirements for harnesses, lanyards, lifelines, tethers and more.

3. Fire Safety. (40 Minutes) This course highlights standards related to fire safety, including prevention, types of fires, extinguishers and best practices.

4. Hazard Communication. (60 Minutes) In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace, information about the identities and hazards of the chemicals must be available and understandable to workers. This course will outline employee Right-to-Know information, the Global Harmonizing System, Safety Data Sheets, and labels.

5. Personal Protective Equipment. (60 Minutes) Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as “PPE”, is equipment worn to minimize exposure to a variety of hazards. Examples of PPE include such items as gloves, foot and eye protection, protective hearing devices (earplugs, muffs) hard hats, respirators and full body suits. This course will outline the most common forms of PPE used in the workplace.

6. Respiratory Protection. (60 Minutes) Respirators protect workers against insufficient oxygen environments, harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, gases, vapors, and sprays. These hazards may cause cancer, lung impairment, diseases, or death. Compliance with the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard could avert hundreds of deaths and thousands of illnesses annually. This course outlines the types of respirators available, proper fit, and inspection/maintenance requirements.

7. Silica Safety. (60 Minutes) Construction workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in over 600,000 workplaces each year. OSHA estimates that more than 840,000 of these workers are exposed to silica levels exceeding the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL). This one-hour course reviews OSHA regulations and the safety codes surrounding silica safety.

8. Stairways and Ladders. (60 Minutes) This subpart applies to all stairways and ladders used in construction, alteration, repair (including painting and decorating), and demolition workplaces covered under 29 CFR part 1926, and also sets forth, in specified circumstances, when ladders and stairways are required to be provided.
