Electrical safety training must be completed before employees work on any energized equipment.

        

OSHA 29 CFR 1910.332 Training states:(a) Scope. The training requirements contained in this section apply to employees who face a risk of electric shock that is not reduced to a safe level by the electrical installation requirements of 1910.303 through 1910.308.
NOTE: Employees in occupations listed in Table S-4 face such a risk and are required to be trained.
TABLE S-4 TYPICAL OCCUPATIONAL CATEGORIES OF EMPLOYEES FACING A HIGHER THAN NORMAL RISK OF ELECTRICAL ACCIDENT
Blue collar supervisors, Electrical and electronic engineers, Electrical and electronic equipment assemblers, Electrical and electronic technicians, Electricians, Industrial machine operators, Material handling equipment operators, Mechanics and repairers, Painters, Riggers and roustabouts, Stationary engineers, and Welders.
Other employees who also may reasonably be expected to face a comparable risk of injury due to electric shock or other electrical hazards must also be trained.

Lock Out Tag Out Try Out

Electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, pneumatic, and other forms of energy run nearly everything in our workplace today. If uncontrolled, each of these pose a significant hazard. Death and serious injury can result from an unexpected startup, or the release of hazardous energy.OSHA lock out tag out safety training and procedures have been developed to prevent this from happening and to safeguard employees.


Who must take this course?
All authorized employees who service or maintain equipment, as well as equipment operators and any other affected employees who work in the area where lockout tagout is being performed (not including persons in the construction, agriculture and maritime employment) are required to take this training to meet OSHA compliance requirements for lock out tag out in (29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)).

Crystalline Silica

Activities that can lead to silicosis, which makes a person more susceptible to infectious diseases of the lungs such as tuberculosis, include cement manufacturing, asphalt pavement manufacturing, jack hammering, rock and well drilling, concrete mixing, concrete drilling, brick and concrete block cutting and sawing, and sandblasting. Upon successful completion each student will have immediate access to a wallet card.

       

According to OSHA:  "Employers are required to provide and assure the use of appropriate controls for crystalline silica-containing dust."This course will help you comply with the OSHA standard on respirable crystalline silica in both the construction and general industries.Who must take this course?
General Industry:
According to OSHA 29 CFR 1910.9(b): ...The employer must train each affected employee in the manner required by the standard, and each failure to train an employee may be considered a separate violation.

Hand & Power Tool Safety

Hand tools are powered manually and include everything from axes to wrenches. Their greatest hazards come from misuse and improper maintenance. Power tools must be fitted with guards and safety switches. Power tools are extremely hazardous when used improperly.Employees should be trained in the proper use of all tools and be able to recognize the hazards associated with different types of tools and required safety precautions.


Who must take this course?
The potential of serious injury exists from the misuse of hand and powered tools. It is therefore recommended that all "General Industry" employees who work with and around hand and portable powered tools take this safety training course.

Globally Harmonized System (GHS)

OSHA's implementation of the Global Harmonization Standard (GHS) is not something to ignore.  The Hazard Communication Standard was created in 1983 and has gone relatively unchanged until recently.  Becoming compliant is not an option, it's the law!

WHY IS OSHA IMPLEMENTING GHS?

The goal of GHS is to better protect workers from hazardous chemicals.  The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has revised its Hazard Communication Standard, aligning it with the United Nations' global chemical labeling system.  The new standard, once fully implemented, will prevent an estimated 43 deaths and will result in an estimated $475.2 million in enhanced productivity for U.S. businesses each year.

WHAT DOES YOUR COMPANY NEED TO DO?

Compliance will vary for each company, but the one consistent factor is training on the Global Harmonization Standard by December 1, 2013.  Time is running out!  Contact an DVS safety professional today to help your company evaluate what you need to do to be compliant.

Shift Work Safety & Fatigue

Irregular hours of work and  work patterns that include night and early morning shifts can lead to  disruption of the internal body clock, sleeping difficulties and fatigue. If workers are fatigued,  they will be less alert, their reaction time will be slower, they will find  it harder to concentrate and they may make poor decisions. This  can lead to accidents and injuries.  What do I have to do?  If you operate a shift work  system or your employees are required to work irregular hours, you should  assess any risks that arise from their working pattern and take action to  tackle any problems you identify.  Factors to consider during  risk assessment are: the workload the work activity shift timing and duration direction of shift rotation. It is better for the shifts to run in a 'forward rotation', ie morning/afternoon/nightthe number and length of breaks within a shift rest periods between shifts


Nearly 15 million Americans work a permanent night shift or regularly rotate in and out of night shifts, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That means a significant sector of the nations work force is exposed to the hazards of working nights, which include restlessness, sleepiness on the job, fatigue, decreased attention and disruption of the bodys metabolic process.Those effects extend beyond the workers themselves, as many of us share the road with night-driving truckers, count on the precision of emergency-room workers and rely on the protection of police and national security personnel at all hours.Now, psychologists are gaining a better understanding of how exactly night and shift work affect cognitive performance and which interventions and policies could keep shift workers and the public safer."The basic take-home is that fatigue decreases safety," says Bryan Vila, PhD, a sleep expert and criminal justice researcher at Washington State University “Spokane. Learning healthy sleeping practices is "just as important as occupational training," he says.

Process Safety Management

This course presents an overview of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) standard for process safety management for general industries. The standard emphasizes the management of hazards associated with acutely hazardous materials and provides the necessary information for establishing a comprehensive process safety management program that incorporates procedures, management practices, and technologies to ensure safety in the workplace.

         

On July 17, 1990, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed a plan for the management of hazards associated with processes using acutely hazardous materials, which resulted in the establishment of the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.119 - Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals. OSHA has been working in tandem with approved states to enforce the requirements of the process safety standard contained in 29 CFR 1910.119 ever since.
