Construction Health and Safety Compliance 5HR CE Part I
Instructors: Nelson Gelias & Joshua Francis
1. Confined Spaces. (160 Minutes) 29 CFR 1926 – Subpart AA Confined Spaces in Construction sets forth requirements for practices and procedures to protect employees engaged in construction activities at a worksite with one or more confined spaces. Examples of locations where confined spaces may occur include, but are not limited to, the following: Bins; boilers; pits (such as elevator, escalator, pump, valve or other equipment); manholes (such as sewer, storm drain, electrical, communication, or other utility); tanks (such as fuel, chemical, water, or other liquid, solid or gas); incinerators; scrubbers; concrete pier columns; sewers; transformer vaults; heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) ducts; storm drains; water mains; precast concrete and other pre-formed manhole units; drilled shafts; enclosed beams; vessels; digesters; lift stations; cesspools; silos; air receivers; sludge gates; air preheaters; step up transformers; turbines; chillers; bag houses; and/or mixers/reactors.
2. Respiratory Protection. (50 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.
3. 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.
