    Class Description:  This class combines the following 4 segments:

    1)  SILICA COMPETENT PERSON FOR CONSTRUCTION Training:  OSHA’s New Silica Law was created to help protect workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica.  Workers who inhale very small crystalline silica particles are at increased risk of developing serious — and often deadly — silica-related diseases. This class will provide commonsense, affordable and flexible strategies for employers to protect workers from the serious risks posed by silica exposure.

     
    2)  RESPIRATORY PROTECTION Training:  Respiratory protection is part of working in the construction industry.  Learn where, how and why you and your employees need protection; the correct type of mask to use in various situations, how to don a mask, maintain masks,  replacement routine and much more.

    3) ASBESTOS Training:  Asbestos is well recognized as a health hazard and its use is now highly regulated by both OSHA and EPA.   Learn how to best control your exposure to asbestos through engineering controls, administrative actions, and personal protective equipment (PPE) .

    4) HAZARD COMMUNICATION “Globally Harmonized System” Training is about Safe Handling of Hazardous Chemicals. All employees who have potential exposure to hazardous chemicals MUST have this training. OSHA penalties have been severe for those who have NOT provided this training
