Lockout/Tagout Training April 14th 4:00 pm-6:00 pm

Mandatory for all Foreman in all divisions.

Instructor: David Culwell

Overview: OSHA's Control of Hazardous Energy standard (29 CFR 1910.147) mandates training, inspections, and recordkeeping to ensure that workers will not be injured by unexpected start-up or release of energy from a machine or piece of equipment during service or maintenance.

Whatever your role in lockout/tagout, you need to understand the reasons for lockout/tagout and know the established procedures. Lockout/Tagout training is designed to raise your awareness about the importance of lockout/tagout and teach you both when and how to follow the procedures every time they're needed.

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

· Identify sources of hazardous energy

· Describe the three different types of employees recognized in a lockout or tagout program

· Distinguish lockout from tagout

· Explain how to perform lockout and tagout procedures

· Use a group lockout device safely

· Recognize exceptions to lockout and tagout requirements

This course is mandatory for all concrete cutters and foreman.

Course Length: 2.0 Hours

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately two million construction workers are exposed to crystalline silica, a common mineral whose dust can lead to serious medical issues if exposure is not limited.

This program is designed to educate workers on how to protect themselves from the dangers of crystalline silica dust. Specifically, it covers 29 CFR 1926.1153, OSHA's Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule for Construction..

After training with Crystalline Silica for Construction Employees, learners will be able to:

· Recognize workplace tasks that could result in exposure to crystalline silica

· Identify health hazards caused by exposure to crystalline silica

· Recall the various methods of communicating crystalline silica hazards: labels, safety data sheets, and signs

Fall Protection Authorized User Training

Instructor: David Culwell

4:00 pm-6:00 pm May 19th 2022

Course Length: 2.0 Hours

Fall protection is one of the most frequently cited OSHA violations, due to lack of proper equipment and training. It should come as no surprise then, that falls are the leading cause of death among private industry construction workers, accounting for over 35% of all fatalities. The next leading cause, struck by object, accounts for just under 10%.

Because of the risk of death from falling, OSHA requires the use of fall protection when working at heights of six feet or more above a lower level at all construction jobsites under CFR 1926 Subpart M, "Fall Protection."

Fall Protection for Construction is designed to help learners recognize the hazards of falling and how to minimize them. Specifically, it will cover the potential hazards and protective measures they can take to help prevent injuries while working on elevated working platforms and runways, or near floor, wall, or window openings.

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

· Explain potential fall hazards on the jobsite and describe appropriate ways to eliminate and prevent them

· Identify various forms of fall protection and scenarios when each would be appropriate

· Recognize how to select, inspect, use, and store fall protection equipment properly

Fall Protection Authorized user training covers the following topics:

Potential Hazards

· Unsafe Environment

· Unsafe Equipment

· Unsafe Behavior

Fall Protection Systems

· Guardrail Systems

· Safety Net Systems

· Warning Line Systems

· Controlled Access Zones

· Safety Monitoring Systems

· Covers

· Falling Object Protection

Personal Fall Protection

· Personal Fall Arrest Systems

· Positioning Device Systems

Using Fall Protection Safely

· Choosing the Right Fall Protection

· Attending Training

· Inspecting Fall Protection

· Using Fall Protection

· Storing Fall Protection
