OSHA 8-Hour Annual Refresher – Respiratory Protection & HAZWOPER
The HAZWOPER standard governs health and safety for three classifications of workers: emergency responders, hazardous waste operations workers, and TSD workers.  After workers in each classification  have received their basic training, they must receive annual refresher training. This course is designed to meet the qualifications of each category. Subjects taught include the use of the NIOSH pocket guide, DOT guidebook, respirator selection, and recent changes to pertinent regulations. General site workers, supervisors, fire department officials, and safety directors will find this course interesting and informative.

OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety
The 10-Hour course provides a condensed version of the 30-hour course. Many employers use this training to familiarize the workforce with safety hazards. Subjects covered include fall protection, scaffolding, electrical hazards, chemical hazards, cranes, forklifts, trenching and others. For groups it can be tailor-made to your needs within OSHA guidelines. This is part of an OSHA TRAINING INSTITUTE outreach program. Your certificate and wallet card will be issued from OTI.


OSHA 30-Hour Construction Safety
OSHA 29 CFR 1926 requires a “Competent Person” on a construction-site.  This person must be competent in the phases of construction currently underway. A “Competent Person” is someone who has the training and experience needed to recognize safety and health hazards and the authority to take immediate corrective action. This 3-day course is packed with information on all phases of construction. Subjects covered include fall protection, scaffolding, electrical hazards, chemical hazards, cranes, forklifts, trenching and others.


OSHA 8-Hour Confined Space Entry
29 CFR 1910.146 requires documented training for confined space workers. Anyone serving as entrant, attendant, supervisor, or rescuer must be trained to a level of proficiency with the duties they are to perform. This course covers the regulatory requirements to include the written program, principles of atmospheric monitoring, permit procedures, ventilation, flushing, space isolation, and other procedures. Included are two hands-on drills using our simulator (Trailer). One drill involves a horizontal entry and another involves a vertical entry with a tripod and harnesses. This course is recommended for supervisors, entrants and attendants. This course does not cover rescue however, rescuers are required to be trained as entrants.


OSHA 16-Hour Confined Space Rescue
While a confined space entry is in progress, rescuers are required to be available to respond in a timely manner. Fire departments cannot fill that function. They are not a “stand by” organization. In addition, they might not have the specialized rescue equipment needed for extrication from your spaces; or it is possible they are not trained in confined space rescue procedures. OSHA encourages on-site rescue teams since they are more familiar with your spaces and can effect a more timely rescue. This course teaches basic rescue techniques, use of the necessary equipment for horizontal and vertical rescues, patient packaging, spine immobilization, litter basket rescue, mechanical advantage haul systems, supplied air respiratory protection, rapid patient access, along with other procedures. he second day incorporates four different rescue scenarios using our confined space simulator that can be towed to your site.


OSHA 8-Hour Incident Command
In responding to HAZMAT incidents the “Incident Command System” is mandated by 29 CFR 1910.120 (q).
Emergencies of all kinds require an informed and competent individual in charge.  An Incident Commander is not only required to have 24 hours of training equal to the operations level, but also must have additional knowledge and skills as described in par. (q)(6)(v).  This course is designed to familiarize commanders with management terminology and procedures used by emergency responders from the public and private sector.  Establishing command, designating sectors, and coordinating private sector resources with public safety agencies will lead to safe and efficient handling of emergencies of all kinds.  This course offers an opportunity to learn from experienced instructors.
