  TRAINING AND CALENDAR OF EVENTS
 
Trenching and Excavation - May 21, 2014 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon
This workshop will provide an overview of 29 CFR 1926.650-652 excavations, including the role of the competent person. The session is designed to assist participants in identifying hazards associated with excavations and related activities.
Safe Driving – June 18, 2014 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon

Work-related vehicle crashes are the leading cause of occupational fatalities according to the U.S. Dept. of Labor. Small changes in behavior behind the wheel can decrease the likelihood of getting in a motor vehicle accident, and increase your chances of survival in the event of a collision or other serious event. This session will describe safe driving and accident prevention skills. Your awareness of the need for and the benefits of safe driving will be greatly improved.

Powered Industrial Trucks – July 9, 2014 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon

Learn how to meet OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck Standard. OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.178 Standard requires formal instruction, practical training, and evaluation of operator performance to be completed and documented. This 2-hour workshop will cover safe work practices, methods of providing formal and practical training, and tools for operator evaluation. Written handout materials will be provided to use in the development of your site-specific training program. 

Workplace Violence – August 14, 2014 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon

A very real day-to-day trend of workplace threats, aggression, and assaults has grown to epidemic proportions. Contrary to common misconceptions, fatalities are not involved in most cases. But even incidents without assaults or physical injuries can devastate the sense of personal security people once felt at their place of employment. This workshop is designed to make you more aware of the issues related to workplace violence and to provide tools to help manage, defuse, and prevent it.
