7 Hr Exploring the MN Residential Building Code

Instructor:  J. MacDowell

This Course Covers:

  1. Energy Efficiency. Energy requirements for all aspects of energy uses in both commercial and residential construction, including heating and ventilating, lighting, water heating, and power usage for building systems not only provide a better quality of life, but also protect the environment. This chapter will help builders identify important considerations regarding energy conservation requirements in new home construction, and they will work through three case studies to get a sense of how to address these requirements in the field.
  2. Business Practices. It is important to maintain good business practices in your contracting business. This chapter will help aspiring builders understand the appropriate licensing requirements, applicable laws to follow when conducting business, and requirements for paying and hiring employees.
  3. Minnesota Rules. This chapter highlights code that builders must adhere to with Minnesota specific amendments and rules.
  4. Minnesota Residential Code. This chapter provides an overview of building code from the International Residential Code (IRC) book.
  5. Code from Trades. This chapter outlines code from the International Residential Code (IRC) that is applicable to various trades.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the need for alternate, energy-efficient means to the construction of residential buildings and identify new Energy Code requirements.
  • Describe standards and requirements related to licensing for residential contractors, remodelers, roofers, and manufactured home installers.
  • Determine employee classifications and employer requirements of state and federal workers’ compensation law.
  • Discuss Minnesota-specific requirements relating to the construction permitting process and prefabricated structures.
  • Interpret where to find Minnesota rules chapters within the IECC and IRC and explain what has been deleted, amended, and replaced.
  • Assess construction projects to make sure they meet the specifications of the IRC.

7 Hr Construction Health and Safety Compliance 

Instructor:  J. MacDowell

This Course Covers:

1. Controlling Hazardous Energy: 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: 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: This course highlights standards related to fire safety, including prevention, types of fires, extinguishers and best practices.

4. Hazard Communication: 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: 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: 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. Energy Efficiency: Air Sealing in New Home Construction Even as technological innovation creates new construction possibilities, incorporating energy-efficiency into building projects can not only provide a better quality of life, but also protect the environment. This one hour course will help builders identify important considerations regarding air sealing in new home construction.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Outline the appropriate use of lockout/tagout procedures.
  • Identify the standard use, maintenance and inspection requirements for fall protection equipment.
  • Describe standards and requirements related to fire prevention and safety in the workplace.
  • Summarize the Hazard Communication requirements outlined by OSHA
  • Understand how to effectively implement personal protective equipment as required by OSHA
  • Outline the types of respirators available, including how and when these devices must be used.
  • Identify considerations regarding air sealing in new home construction.
