Fall Protection
While general industry has a potential for personnel injury through falls from elevated heights, the major source of injuries in the workforce is in the area of construction.  This class covers both areas with an emphasis on construction.  The course provides instruction in the conditions, operations and circumstances for which fall protection shall be provided by the company.  The class also covers the different types of fall arrest systems and requirements for each system. 

Material Handling and Storage
This class will provide students with the requirements of general material handling and storage, as well as specifics in the areas of storage, movement, utilizing powered industrial trucks, combustibility issues of flammable materials and handling and storage of non-compatible materials.  An overview of hazardous and toxic materials will also be provided.  Scenarios will be presented to students for evaluation and determination of storage and handling requirements.

Hoisting and Rigging
This class provides requirements for hoisting and rigging operations and provides guidance for lift classification, lift plans, using crane for fall arrest anchorage and the responsibilities and actions required for safe hoisting and rigging operations.  Students will be provided lecture as well as hands-on rigging activities.  Lectures will provide an understanding of rigging requirements as well as the necessary calculations needed to determine sling and angle requirements for specific loads.

Accident Investigation
Students will be given the instruction and tools to accomplish accident investigation on work-related accidents/incidents, identify the documentation requirements of OSHA and make determination on recordability in accordance with OSHA guidelines.  Through lecture and scenario evaluations, students will be given case studies and present findings to the class.

First Aid/CPR/Bloodborne Pathogens (AHA Course)
Minutes, and sometimes seconds, can mean the difference between life and death when an accident or emergency illness strikes. Our goal in this class is to teach you the knowledge and skills that my help save a life. The training you will receive consists of basic first aid/CPR, automatic external defibrillation (AED) and bloodborne pathogens (BBP). This course follows a logical progression. It begins by providing baseline information on how the human body normally functions, followed by the body’s reactions to illness or injury. After that, you will learn how to recognize the most common problems you will encounter. We then take your knowledge of first aid, teach you a number of practical skills and combine both into actual application.

First Responder/ Emergency Medical Responder
The Department of Transportation’s National Standard Curriculum is utilized for this sixty-hour (60) hour course, with a heavy emphasis on recognition and treatment of life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Upon completion, the First Responder will have refined an organized method for assessing patients in a variety of situations. Healthcare Provider CPR is provided as part of this course. First Responder represents the initial entry into the emergency medical system for many people, both as patients and responders. Typical students are those working in industrial settings, firefighters, police officers, rescue squad volunteers, teachers or any other occupational role that might be the first to respond to an emergency. If you are uncomfortable or lacking the knowledge to render aid in an emergency, this course can fill the void. Have a group that needs training?
