OSHA Recordkeeping

This course is focused on established uniform injury and illness reporting procedures that meet or exceed requirements of OSHA and other state, federal and local regulations.

Hazardous Communications

Standard 1910.200 is violated and cited by OSHA frequently. This course will help you create a proper HAZCOM plan that meets OSHA requirements. Topics will include maintaining MSDS, developing a regular schedule for employee training, proper documentation and additional valuable information.


We offer 8, 24 and 40-hour HAZWOPER training.

The 40-hour class provides compliance with OSHA Standard 29CFR 1910.120 requiring training for all individuals involved in cleanup of hazardous materials spills and releases. Students are trained to identify potential hazards and perform their jobs with minimal risks to their health. They will identify hazardous materials, learn how to decontaminate work areas, work with personal protective equipment, guard personal safety, etc.

The 24-hour training is for in-house spill teams and non-routine site works. It covers basic emergency response when dealing with small identifiable spills that do not require protective clothing. This class features the fundamentals of establishing and maintaining an in-house response team.

The 8-hour course is for all hazardous waste operations and emergency response staff. They are required to maintain current certification with an annual 8-hr refresher course.


This class is a review of OSHA Standard 1910.147. During this 8-hour class the participants will learn what machinery must be locked and tagged. Participants will look at establishing procedures to control energy sources, and the proper procedures for restoring power, start up or release of stored energy from equipment or piping systems which could cause injury to employees, contractors or other personnel.

Fall Protection

Your employees may realize that falls may result from a number of factors, including unstable working surfaces, misuse of fall protection equipment, and human error. We reinforce their use of guardrails, fall arrest systems, safety nets, covers, and travel restriction systems preventing many of the deaths and injuries that result from falls.

Bloodborne Pathogens

Every employee who may be exposed to blood or other infectious substances is subject to OSHA regulation 29CFR 1910.1030. Our trainers work with attendees so they can learn how to control exposure, respond to emergencies involving blood, select personal protective equipment, document each incident, and institute a corrective action plan.
