6 Hour Video Course
This course focuses on bloodborne pathogens, controling hazardous energy, fall protection, fire safety, hazard communication and chemical safety, PPE, and silica safety.
Instructor: Nelson Gelinas
This Course Covers:
Bloodborne Pathogens – (30 Minutes) Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease, and be easily passed from one person to another. This course will outline the basic precautions every person should observe when working in a workplace where accidents can occur.
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.
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.
Fire Safety – (40 Minutes) This course highlights standards related to fire safety, including prevention, types of fires, extinguishers and best practices.
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.
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.
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.
