About Our Safety Awareness Programs
At last count, 14 American workers died of work-related injuries every day. That’s 14 fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, and friends who didn’t make it home to their loved ones – every day. That’s why we believe that every class is an opportunity to save a life.
Worker safety is priority #1, but safety awareness training is about much more than reducing lost-time accidents and workers’ compensation claims. The indirect costs routinely suffered by employers as the result of workplace injuries and accidents include:
- Lost production time
- Loss of use of equipment
- Loss of talent
- Injured workers on medical leave
- Obtaining and training temporary help
- Equipment, machinery, and property damage
- Reputational losses
- Decreased employee morale
- Lost contract opportunities due to increased EMR
- Lack of ability to draw top talent
- Increased workers’ compensation insurance premiums
- Litigation costs
- Including time devoted to claim investigation and trial preparation
- Regulatory citations and fine
OSHA General Industry 10-Hour Curriculum
Our OSHA 10-hour training provides fundamental safety awareness knowledge for general industry workers. Your workers are trained to recognize workplace hazards and identify solutions. This training is recommended for all general industry workers covered by OSHA 29 CFR 1910 and serves as the foundation for additional occupational safety and health training. Topics include:
- Introduction to OSHA
- The OSH Act of 1970
- Rights and responsibilities of both employers and employees
- Walking and Working Surfaces
- Exit Routes, Emergency Action Plans, Fire Prevention Plans, and Fire Protection
- Electrical Safety
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Hazard Communication
- Materials Handling
- Machine Guarding
- Fall Protection
- Lockout Tagout
Each student who successfully completes the course requirements (including a 70% passing grade on the final knowledge assessment) will receive an OSHA 10-hour completion card issued by the Department of Labor.
Training is presented live, at your facility. Alternatively, we can schedule training at a local conference room convenient for your staff. Because OSHA limits all outreach training to 7.5 instructional hours per day, this 10-hour course must be completed over a 2-day period. The entire course takes approximately 12 hours to complete and our program is designed to be delivered in two 6-hour sessions.
OSHA General Industry 30-Hour Curriculum
Our OSHA 30-hour training follows the same format as that of the OSHA 10-hour but includes an expanded offering of topics tailored to those responsible for the safety of others. This training is also offered on-site at your location. This training is essential for your Supervisors, Managers, Safety Officers, Safety Program Administrators, Compliance Officers, and Executive team members. In addition to the above topics, a typical 30-hour session includes a mix of the following:
- Managing Safety and Health
- Permit-Required Confined Spaces
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Welding, Cutting, and Brazing
- Introduction to Industrial Hygiene
- Hazardous Materials
- Powered Industrial Vehicles
- Safety and Health Programs
Training is presented live, at your facility. Alternatively, we can schedule training at a local conference room convenient for your staff. Because OSHA limits all outreach training to 7.5 instructional hours per day, this 30-hour course must be completed over a 4-day period.
