Construction Safety Training & Certification Kits

Aerial & Scissor Lift Training Kit

Almost  250,000 crane and industry workers, and non-construction working people are at risk every year of suffering serious injury or death in aerial lift accidents. An annual study done by the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety in 2010, showed that the direct impact or cost to employers from injuries in 2008 was $53.42 billion. Furthermore, the study was able to conclude that accidents at the workplace were estimated to cost employers an additional $80 to $200 billion each year. To reduce injury and death OSHA has created a strict policy dealing with aerial lifts.

This OSHA policy requires putting into place standard emergency procedures, training for usage, maintaining lifts properly, providing employees the proper personal protection equipment and more. These OSHA safety manuals and policies have been proven to help reduce the likelihood of injury and save employers billions.

THE ONE STOP SOLUTION

If you are reading this page, you are no doubt already aware of some of the hazards that can be associated with aerial lifts and the long list of safety regulations your company must abide by. Abiding by these regulations can be a long process requiring you either create a safety training program yourself or to use expensive safety consultants.

There is a better solution.

Here at Safety Services Company we have created a “Do-It-Yourself” safety training kit that helps you by being very easy to administer and fulfilling all your OSHA requirements. This Aerial & Scissor Lift safety training kit features an Interactive Training Program, Student’s Handbook, Instructor’s Handbook, OSHA Regulations, Student Tests, Training Logs, Fall Protection Checklist, Certificates, Wallet Cards and More.

Topics addressed:

  • OSHA requirements
  • Manuals
  • Safety decals and information
  • PPE
  • Inspections
  • Start-up
  • Operation
  • Hazards
  • Maneuvering
  • Maintenance
  • And much more

Our $499.99 Aerial & Scissor Lift safety kit is a simple three-step solution that brings all your employees into compliance.

  • Classroom/online training – The first step of our safety program is an electronic training session. With this, employees easily use an electronic training program at a computer and then take an automatically graded test.
  • Field training – The second part of training is in the field where your appointed trainer shows the trainee how to apply in the field some of the things they learned in the classroom session.
  • Evaluation – The third step to the training session is evaluation where the trainer either evaluates the trainee and signs off on certification or goes back and revisits topics that need more work. All certification using the Aerial & Scissor Lift training program meets OSHA safety requirements. It also provides instruction on how to craft your aerial lifts written policy. If you are not comfortable writing your own policy we can easily help you with that for an nominal fee. If you have any questions just give us a call at 888-461-5023. We are here to help!
REQUIREMENTS OF AERIAL LIFTS

Both OSHA and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have a series of rules in place that are designed to protect employees using aerial lifts. ANSI requires that all aerial lifts are inspected before use. Inspections are also required to make sure all controls operate properly, and that the equipment is free of any defects. American National Standards Institute also specifies that:

  • Equipment only be moved/adjusted when the aerial lift is in the retracted/grounded position
  • Brakes must always be set to lock the equipment into place when workers are lifted
  • Workers are to stay within the confines of the lift at all times during operation
  • They must wear the proper fall protection equipment.

While the ANSI regulations are only recommendations on safety measures to take, OSHA has requirements that all employers using aerial lifts must follow.

These regulations are CFR’s 1926.453, 1926.454, 1926.451, 1926.452, and 1926.454.

These OSHA safety requirements for aerial and scissor lifts include securing the boom or ladder in the stored position when the vehicle is in motion. Also employees must have a body harness and/or lanyard attached to the bucket or boom, and must always obey weight limits of the boom lift and bucket posted by the manufacturer. OSHA safety requirements also states that a qualified person trains all users.

The training must include:

  • Any electrical, fall, and falling-object hazards
  • How to operate the lift correctly
  • Manufacturer requirements
  • Personal Protection Equipment
  • Positioning
  • Fall Protection

Our Aerial & Scissor Lift training program makes sure that your company is currently compliant, and will remain that way in the future.

Don’t wait to make sure your employees, capital assets, and your business are protected. Effective safety training and certification with detailed safety manuals keeps your employees  qualified and safe. Contact us today at 888-461-5023 for more information about Aerial and Boom Lift training.

Bloodborne Pathogen Safety Training Kit

Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms that can be found in the blood or other types of body fluids that can cause serious illness and even diseases. These pathogens can be transmitted through the eyes, skin, nose or mouth, even under the skin if punctured. You can be exposed to pathogens by cuts caused by objects like needles, or knives. This can increases the risk of exposure when blood or other body fluids care splashed on open wounds. This is why bloodborne pathogen safety manuals are so important in the workplace.

An extremely common disease caused by exposure is hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Many times people carrying bloodborne pathogens may not even be aware that they are infected.

OSHA adopted a policy in March 1992 (CFR 1910.1030) that was designed to limit exposure to bloodborne pathogens and various types of body fluids at the workplace. The policy was first created specifically for hospitals, nursing homes, law enforcement agencies, emergency responders, and other medical research laboratories. But the standard grew to also cover any and all employers where there may be a reasonable chance of exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

To comply with the OSHA bloodborne pathogen standard means employers need to have in place a policy and OSHA safety manual dealing with the risks and hazards of bloodborne pathogens, vaccination, handling, and more. OSHA has confirmed through independent studies that employers who have a safety and health training program in place see a 52 percent lower rate of “injury with days away” than employers without a safety training program.

THE ONE STOP SOLUTION

To meet the OSHA bloodborne pathogens regulations that are set in place can be a long and tedious process that requires you to either develop a safety training training program in house or outsource the training with expensive safety consultants.

There is a better solution.

Here at Safety Services Company we have created a “Do-It-Yourself” Bloodborne Pathogens safety training certification program that is both simple to administer and fulfills all your OSHA requirements. Our training kit features an Interactive Training Program, Student’s Handbook, Instructor’s Handbook, Student Tests, Training Logs, Certificates, Wallet Cards and More. Our $499.99 bloodborne pathogen training kit is a simple three-step solution that brings all your employees into compliance.

  • Classroom/online training: The first step of our training program is an electronic training session where employees navigate an electronic training safety program on a computer at their own pace. After that they take an online auto graded test.
    Our training program covers the key topics that you need to educate your employees on the following:

    • The nature and symptoms of common bloodborne pathogens
    • Transmission
    • Avoiding exposure
    • Personal protective equipment procedures
    • Material disposal
  • Practical training: The second part of safety training is at the workplace where your appointed safety trainer shows the trainee how to apply the bloodborne pathogens training that they learned about in the classroom session.
  • Evaluation: The third step to the training session is evaluation where the trainer will either evaluates the trainee and signs off on their bloodborne pathogen certification, or go back over any topics that need more work. All certification through the program meets or exceeds OSHA safety requirements.
WHAT’S NEEDED AND WHO NEEDS IT?

The Hepatitis B Vaccination: All employers are required by law to provide employees who have the potential for exposure to blood with access to a Hepatitis B vaccination, unless the employee has already received the complete Hepatitis B vaccination series. If the employee does initially decline the Hepatitis B vaccination but then later decides to accept it, the vaccination shall then be made available. Employees who decline the Hepatitis B vaccination offered shall sign the OSHA required waiver that indicates their refusal.

Exposure Mitigation Plan: Employers are required to create a bloodborne pathogen exposure mitigation plan that must identify, in writing, all the tasks and procedures and also all the job classifications where occupational exposure to body fluids may occur. The plan must also set create standard provisions that specify the procedure for evaluating the different circumstances that can surround exposure incidents. The plan must be easily and readily accessible to employees and available to OSHA. Employers must take care to review and update the plan annually.

Personal Protection Equipment Program: At no cost to the employee, all employers must provide and require employees to use the correct personal protective equipment such as gloves, gowns, masks, mouthpieces and resuscitation bags. Employers must also train employees on the proper use of this equipment, in addition to providing the safety equipment.

Training: OSHA requirements state employers need to have annual refresher training in place when employees are at a high risk for exposure to blood and other bodily fluids. This training must occur before employees are allowed to perform any tasks. Additional training will be provided when changes such as modification of tasks or procedures affect the employee’s occupational exposure. Any employee who is exposed to infectious materials shall receive training, even if the employee was allowed to receive the HBV vaccine after exposure.

DOES BLOODBORNE PATHOGEN TRAINING WORK?

While the blow of a workplace injury is crippling many companies, safety training programs are proven to drastically reduce the risk of injury and increase workplace productivity.

Workplaces that establish safety and health management systems can reduce their injury and illness costs by 20 to 40 percent, according to OSHA. Studies not only show the impact safety training has in increasing productivity and preventing injury.

Now is the time to make sure your employees’ health and safety are protected, and your business stays compliant. Effective safety training & certification kits will ensure that your employees are qualified and safe. Contact us today at 888-461-5023 for more information about our Bloodborne Pathogen safety training kit.

Confined Space Training Kit

Many workplaces contain spaces considered “confined” because their design hinders the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. The definition of a confined space is one that has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Examples of confined spaces include underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines.

In addition to standard confined spaces, OSHA uses the term “permit-required confined space” to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics:

• Contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere;
• Contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant;
• Has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area, which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant;
• Contains any other recognized safety or health hazard such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.

Nationwide there are a combined 6 million workplaces with confined spaces which is why having safety manuals covering it is very important. In 2013, 195 workers died and another 11,000 were injured in confined spaces.

OSHA Requirements
To limit these incidents of injury and death OSHA has instituted regulations (29 CFR1910.146) dealing with confined spaces.

The regulation requirements include identifying hazards in confined spaces, defining your workplace-confined spaces, and setting up a permit policy.

OSHA notes, by their very nature and configuration, many permit required spaces contain atmospheres that can be immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH)”. For example, many confined spaces are poorly ventilated – a condition that creates an oxygen-deficient atmosphere and allows the accumulation of toxic gases.

It is your obligation as an employer to evaluate your workplace to determine if any spaces are permit-required confined spaces. You must first determine:
• If a space is a confined space
• If it is a permit-required confined space.
• If full permit entry rules, or less restrictive alternative entry rules apply

If you determine your employees will enter permit-required confined spaces, then you must have a written confined space entry program and training plan.

If your confined spaces don’t require permits, or employees will not be allowed access, you must develop a training program that teaches what constitutes a confined space, the hazards that may be encountered inside them, and the precautions that must be taken by confined space entrants, attendants, and supervisors to prevent accidents and injuries.

Complying with the OSHA Confined Spaces requirements can be challenging, requiring you to either to develop a training program yourself or to outsource with expensive safety consultants.

There Is a Better Solution

Here at Safety Services we have developed a “Do-It-Yourself” training program that is both simple to administer and fulfills all your OSHA safety training requirements.

Our Confined Spaces training kit consists of a simple three-step solution that brings all your employees into compliance.
1. Classroom/online training – The first step of our Confined Spaces training program gives you two training options
o A computer based training program that allows employees to navigate an electronic training program at their own pace, and then take an automatically graded test.
o Instructor presentations and printable student material that can be used for group classroom instruction, or when computer access is limited.
2. Field training – The second step of training is in the field. During this part of the training, your appointed trainer shows the trainees how to apply the materials they learned in the classroom session.
3. Evaluation – The third step to the training session is evaluation. Through this step, the trainer either evaluates the trainees understanding of the information and procedures, and then signs off on certification, or retouches on topics that need more work.

Drug Free Workplace Training Kit

Substance abuse is a serious problem in the workplace. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that approximately 75 percent of all illegal drug users are employed either full or part time. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism reports that one in every 13 people in this country has an alcohol problem which makes having safety manuals in place extremely important.

Employees don’t leave their substance abuse problems at the door when they come to work. Workers who use alcohol and other drugs have the potential to affect everyone in the workplace. In fact, studies show that substance abusers:

• Are far less productive
• Miss more workdays
• Are more likely to injure themselves or someone else
• File more Workers’ Compensation claims

The economic and human costs attributed to drug and alcohol use are astounding. In fact, the cost to U.S. workplaces from drug use has nearly doubled in the past 20 years, growing from roughly $80 billion to $150 billion in lost productivity a year. These losses in productivity are associated with the cost employers must pay out in claims, lost days on the job and reduction in productivity.

Addressing these problems with a Drug Free Workplace Program (DFWP) has proven to improve performance for employees and employers. In addition, 12 states provide mandated insurance company discounts when a DFWP is in place, and employers everywhere may be eligible for insurance discounts.

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS
In 1998, the U.S. congress passed the Drug Free Workplace Act (DFWPA), which requires Federal grantees and recipients of Federal contracts of $100,000 or more to have a written policy that explains what’s prohibited, and the consequences of violating the policy. Failure to comply with the act could result in any contracts awarded to you by a Federal agency may be suspended, terminated, or both. You may become ineligible for consideration of any future contracts, and prohibited from participating in any future procurement by any Federal agency for up to five years.

In addition, the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) have established requirements that are even more stringent than the DFWPA. Employers working in transportation and pipeline businesses must meet those requirements.

Implementing a DFWP involves certain training and documentation requirements. To assist in meeting those, our kit includes:

• A 13-lesson employee substance abuse awareness training program
• A 6-lesson supervisor training program
• Reproducible certificates of completion
• All the necessary publications, forms and records to carry out the program

Imagine you have an employee that starts coming to work late, is less productive, and has become careless in regards to safety. You have heard complaints about his drug use and there are rumors he is not the only one.

• Do you know what to do next?
• Does your business already have an established policy of the ramifications of drug and alcohol use?
• Do you have a fair and legal testing procedure?
• Do you have a program to get the employee help and retain him as a valuable asset?

OUR DRUG FREE WORKPLACE PROGRAM (DFWP)

To answer these questions with a resounding yes, Safety Services Company, North America’s largest supplier of safety training materials, has developed our Drug Free Workplace Program (DFWP). Our DFWP kit provides a manual with instructions, information, and selection sheets that allow you to create a comprehensive written policy that meets your company’s’ needs, as well as the steps you need to take to effective implement your Drug Free Workplace Program.

The OSHA safety training manual also contains information about Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), and information on drug testing methods and procedures.

The DFWP kit is designed as a do-it-yourself resource, is compliant with state regulations, and will replace thousands of dollars you would otherwise spend on training during the lifetime of your company.

Our Drug Free Workplace Program is available in two parts:

• Year 1 provides information on the requirements for creating and implementing a Drug Free Workplace Program
• Year 2 discusses reviewing, maintaining, and expanding your DFWP

If you would like more information about other safety meeting topics, have questions about creating a Drug Free Workplace Program for your company, or would like to order the kit, contact us today at 888-461-5023.

Earthmoving Safety Training Kit

Earthmoving equipment or heavy equipment is defined as any large construction vehicles used to move soil, rock and other heavy objects. These devices maybe track or rubber wheel driven, and come in a variety of configurations often referred to as loaders, scrapers, graders, or backhoes. Regardless of their drive type and application, due to the large nature of the equipment, when accidents occur they are often tragic.

OSHA requirements
While OSHA does not have a specific regulation for each piece of equipment, it does have regulations (CFR 1296.602, 1001) that define general rules that apply to these types of equipment. These include safety features that must be present, safe practices to be followed, and the training you must provide employees regarding the hazards of equipment, proper usage and more. These safety manuals and training must be provided to both the workers using the equipment and anyone else who may come into contact with the equipment.

Because there are no specific requirements by heavy equipment type, companies can struggle to understand and comply with the OSHA rules that do exist. You may find that meeting these regulations is confusing and requires you either to develop a training program yourself, or to outsource with expensive safety consultants.

There is a better solution.

Excavation & Trenching Training Kit

Excavation and trenching are among the most hazardous construction operations, with cave-ins posing the greatest risk. Other excavation related hazards include falls, falling loads, hazardous atmospheres, and incidents involving mobile equipment. Trench collapses cause dozens of fatalities and hundreds of injuries each year. This makes having an OSHA required excavation and trenching safety manual extremely important.

OSHA Requirements
To protect workers from the hazards of trenching and excavations OSHA instituted a number of safety regulations (CFR 1926.650, 651, and 652) to protect workers performing excavation and trenching operations.

These regulations require employers to use the proper procedures and protective systems, and have in place a competent person and train employees on the dangers of excavations.

Protecting your employees from of the hazards associated with excavations and complying with all of the OSHA regulations can appear to be a complex and expensive process. You have either to develop a safety training program yourself or to outsource with expensive safety consultants.

An Easier Training Solution
Here at Safety Services Company we have developed a “Do-It-Yourself” training program that is both simple to administer and fulfills all your OSHA requirements.

Fall Protection Training Kit

OSHA reports that falls from heights are the most common occupational injury, and companies violating fall protection safety regulations are the most frequent source of citations. This is why having OSHA safety manuals covering fall protection regulations are critical for all businesses.

Falls can occur from ladders, scaffolds, elevating devices, or into excavations. Regardless of the cause, or the height of the fall, between 150 and 200 workers are killed and more than 100,000 are injured because of falls each year.
An insurance industry estimates that falls account for 25.6 percent of direct injuries costs amounting to more than $13.67 billion annually, and workers’ compensation and medical costs associated with fall accidents are approximately $70 billion per year.

REGULATIONS TO PROTECT YOUR COMPANY AND EMPLOYEES
To deal with the myriad of issues that contribute to fall incidents, OSHA has created a number of regulations to cover both the human and equipment-related issues to protect workers from fall hazards. These regulations deal with proper use and installation of OSHA safety training kits, supervision, safe work procedures, maintenance and more. These regulations include:

1. 1910.23 Guarding floor and wall openings and holes
2. 1926.500 Fall Protection Requirements in Construction Workplace
3. 1926.501 Duty to Provide Fall Protection
4. 1926.502 Fall Protection Systems Criteria and Practices

Specific sub-parts of these regulations cover the different types of fall equipment and fall protection tools:

• Permanent guard rail and portable guardrail systems
• Safety netting and safety net systems
• Personal fall arrest systems

Training Requirements
OSHA regulation 1926.503 Fall Protection Training Program, defines the training requirements a company must provide to protect employees from fall hazards. The training program must teach employees how to recognize the hazards of falling and train them in the safe work practices to minimize these hazards.

The employer is required train each employee in the following areas:

• Fall hazards in the work area
• Procedures for erecting, maintaining, disassembling, and inspecting the fall protection systems
• Use and operation of guardrail systems, personal fall arrest systems, safety net systems, warning line systems, safety monitoring systems, controlled access zones, and any other fall protection that employees will use

The OSHA regulation also requires employee retraining when:

• The employer believes that an employee does not have the necessary understanding and skill of fall protection use,
• There are changes in the workplace that make previous training obsolete;
• There are changes in the types of fall protection systems or equipment being used;
• An employee’s knowledge or use of fall protection systems or equipment indicates they have not retained the required level of understanding or skill.

Given the number of OSHA safety training requirements and regulations governing fall protection, and the wide variety of fall protection systems and devices, providing training for employees seems like an almost insurmountable task.

The time and resources it would take to create a comprehensive training plan is almost as cost prohibitive as hiring a third party training provider. Fortunately, there is an easier way.

There is a Better Solution

Forklift Safety Training Kit

Forklifts, also known as Powered Industrial Trucks (PIT), are indispensable tools in construction, manufacturing, and warehousing.

The Department of Labor reports that two-thirds of the forklifts in the U.S. are involved in an accident during their life span. Each year in the U.S., forklift-related incidents kill nearly 100 workers and injure another 20,000 making safety manuals a valuable tool in keeping employees safe. The three causes responsible for these incidents are:

1. Poor forklift training
2. Failure to follow safe operating procedures
3. Lack of safety rule enforcement

In addition, OSHA identifies the most common causes of forklift fatalities as:

• Forklifts overturning (22%)
• Workers being struck by forklifts (20%)
• Victims crushed by forklifts (16%)
• Falls from forklifts (9%)

OSHA Forklift Safety Requirements
To protect employers and employees from the danger of operating forklifts, OSHA created safety training requirements (CFR 1910.178) requiring employers to certify forklift operators, and train those who work around forklifts on hazards and best practices. The regulations also require forklift operators to be recertified every three years.
The OSHA regulations do not require that training or certification be done by a government agency or a certified third party vendor, but rather allows companies to use their own personnel to conduct the training by creating an OSHA-complaint program.

A Simple Forklift Safety Solution
Meeting the OSHA forklift regulations can be tedious, requiring you either to develop a training program yourself or to outsource with expensive safety consultants.

There is a better solution.

Safety Services Company has developed a “Do-It-Yourself” training program that is both simple to administer and meets all your OSHA forklift requirements. Our training program is a simple three-step solution that brings all your employees into compliance.

1. Classroom/online training:
The first step of our program is a self-paced electronic training session. This allows employees to complete a computer based training program at their own speed, and then take an automatically graded test. If computers are not available materials are printable for a traditional classroom or onsite training seminar.
2. Field training:
The second step of training is in the field. During this portion of the training, your appointed trainer shows trainees how to apply the information they learned in the classroom, familiarizes the them with the forklifts they will be using on their job, and the specifics of their workplace environment.
3. Evaluation:
The third and final step in the training is evaluation. In this phase, the trainer either evaluates the trainee’s knowledge and ability to operate a forklift safely, and signs off on certification, or retouches on topics that need more work.

GHS HazCom Safety Training Kit

Right now there is an estimated 650,000 existing hazardous chemical products, with hundreds of new ones being produced each year. Chemicals are an everyday part of all of our lives. The fact is employees in many different industries work with these types of chemicals in both pure and mixture forms daily.

Worldwide at least 400 million tons of chemicals are produced to be used in manufacturing, construction, and agriculture. The frightening reality is for many of these chemicals, little to nothing is known about what kind of immediate or even long-term effects can happen to effect the health of the workers who are producing or using them. OSHA has Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs) for less than 500 of the thousands of chemicals that are used in workplaces.

OSHA says each year that illnesses that happen to employees from exposure to chemicals kills nearly 50,000 people. To help protect these workers, OSHA requires employers to establish a comprehensive GHS hazard communications safety manual (HAZCOM) and training policy to address specific workplace chemicals. These OSHA safety policies are proven to help reduce the likelihood of injury and save employers billions.

THE ONE STOP SOLUTION

You are probably already aware of the numerous hazards associated working with chemicals, to go with the long list of regulations that your company must follow. Making sure to abide by these regulations can be a long process that requires you to either create a safety training program yourself or to outsource the training to expensive safety consultants.

There is a better solution.

Here at Safety Services Company we have developed a “Do-It-Yourself” HAZCOM safety training kit that is easy to use and fulfills all your OSHA requirements. This certification kit features an Interactive Training Program, Student’s Handbook, Instructor’s Handbook, Student Tests, Training Logs, Certificates, Wallet Cards and More. Our $499.99 kit is a simple three-step solution that can bring all of your employees into full compliance.

  • 1. Classroom/online training: The first step of our program is an electronic training session where employees navigate the training program on a computer at their own pace, and then take an auto graded test.
    Our HAZCOM training program covers the key topics needed to familiarize your employees on the following:

    • Chemical Classifications and the hazards associated with them
    • GHS labeling standards
    • Understanding Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
    • The PPE requirements and use for safe chemical handling
    • Spill clean –up
    • First aid
  • 2. Practical training: The second part of training is at the workplace where your appointed trainer shows the trainee how to apply the HAZCOM materials that they learned in the classroom session.
  • 3. Evaluation: The final step to the Hazard Communication safety training session is an evaluation where the trainer either evaluates the trainee and signs off on their HAZCOM certification, or goes back over topics that may need more work. All certification through the program will meet or exceeds OSHA safety requirements.
    In addition to meeting OSHA training requirements, the kit also provides you instruction on how to create your own Hazard Communication written policy. If you are not comfortable writing your own safety policy, don’t worry because we can help you write on for a nominal fee.
What is OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard?

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is based around the fact that employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and/or identities of any and all chemicals they are exposed to in the workplace. OSHA’s standard (Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1910.1200, 1915.99, 1917.28, 1918.90, and 1926.59) applies to general industry, shipyard, marine terminals, long-shoring, and construction employment. It also covers chemical manufacturers, importers, employers, and all employees exposed to chemical hazards.

The OSHA HCS was changed in 2012 to match the United Nations (U.N.) Globally Harmonized Standard (GHS), which tries to create a standard system worldwide for identifying and labeling hazardous chemicals.

This standard relies on three basic concepts.

  • 1. Labels that detail basic information that a person needs to know to handle a particular product/chemical safely.
  • 2. Safety Data Sheets (SDS) that provide technical information about a product’s physical characteristics and its hazardous properties.
  • 3. Worker education to ensure workers have the hazard information and safe‐work procedures they need to do their jobs safely.

HCS requires that employers train all their employees on the new label elements and the updated SDS format. This safety training is needed early in the process since workers have begun to see the new labels and SDSs on the chemicals they are using in the workplace. To make sure employees have all the information that they need to protect themselves from chemical hazards that can occur in the workplace during this period, it is critical that employees fully understand the new label system and SDS formats.

The U.N. GHS is designed to be a living document, with scheduled revisions that occur every two years. This schedule will undoubtedly affect the OSHA standards.

Our GHS Hazard communication safety training kit allows you to keep your company currently compliant, and will remain that way in the future.

Now is the time to make sure your employees, capital assets, and your business are protected. Effective safety manuals will make sure that your employees stay qualified and safe. Contact us today at 888-461-5023 for more information about HAZCOM safety training.

Lockout/Tagout Training Kit

“Lockout/Tagout (LOTO)” refers to specific practices and procedures that safeguard employees from the release of hazardous energy during maintenance. The approximately 3 million workers who service equipment face the greatest risk of injury if they aren’t trained on safe lockout/tagout procedures.

Because lockout/tagout is one of the most cited regulation violations in the manufacturing industry and the No. 5 most cited for all industries, it only makes sense that a large portion of workplace accidents are avoidable with solid lockout/tagout safety manuals and a safety-oriented company culture. By cutting down on accidents through an effective program a company can not only improve its profitability, but remove the risk for a costly OSHA fine or lawsuit.

OSHA Requirements
OSHA estimates that implementing a comprehensive lockout/tagout prevents about 120 fatalities and 50,000 injuries each year.

To protect workers, OSHA established a lockout/tagout standard (29 CFR 1910.147). This requires companies to have a written Lockout/Tagout procedure and provide training for all employees who work around, or perform maintenance on, equipment and machinery where there is potential exposure to the release of hazardous energies.

Meeting the required OSHA safety training regulations can either be a time consuming and expensive process, requiring you to develop a training program yourself, or contract for the training with third party safety consultants.

An Easier Compliance Solution
Here at Safety Services we offer an affordable alternative to protect your employees and your company.

Rigging & Material Handling Training Kit

Using mechanical devices such as cranes and rigging, forklifts, pallet jacks, and other equipment to move material is a critical part of construction, manufacturing, warehouse and shipyard work.

Improper use of this equipment when moving material can employees to a variety of potential hazards. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, mechanical material handling accidents account for hundreds of workers deaths or injuries yearly. All of these accidents are preventable by following the equipment manufacturer’s recommendations, using the correct safety manuals, and following safe work practices.

Other hazards associated with rigging and material handling include:
• Uneven working surfaces
• Wet and slippery working surfaces
• Working surfaces not cleared of obstructions
• Improper material movement planning
• Equipment not properly inspected
• Loads not safely rigged
• Improper lift procedures
• Being caught between material or equipment and a fixed object
• Use of hoisting and hauling equipment near energized lines

OSHA Requirements
To protect workers against injury, OSHA created a series of rigging and crane operation regulations (CFR 1926.251,753, CFR1910.179.1438). These safety requirements call for you to maintain rigging equipment, properly train employees and more.

These regulations require you to:
• Inspect rigging equipment for material handling
• Inspect ground where rigging equipment is to be used
• Follow safe working load limits
• Make and maintain a record of rigging and equipment inspections
• Train on the proper usage of rigging materials
• Train on the hazards of material handling
• Provide and ensure proper use of proper PPE

Supported Scaffolding Training Kit

A scaffold is a temporary structure used to support people and material in the construction or repair of buildings and other structures. There are many kinds of prefabricated, modular system of metal pipes, tubes, or poles.
Because scaffolds can be erected at heights in excess of 125 feet, and require employees to work at height, the design and construction must be closely monitored to protect workers from falls and other hazards.

Each year, there are more than 4,500 injuries and 60 deaths stemming from scaffold-related incidents. In order to reduce the potential for scaffolding related accidents OSHA requires all employers to have safety manuals to certify their employees on the proper operation, maintenance, hazard training and more.

OSHA Requirements
To protect workers from scaffolding related injuries OSHA has adopted (CFR 1910.28 and 1926.451,452, 454). These regulations identify the maintenance, best practices, and training.

Meeting these regulations can be a challenging task requiring you to either spend time and resources developing a training program yourself, or outsourcing the training to expensive safety consultants.

There is an alternative.
