A field inspection of a government facility will be arranged in order to provide hands on experience.

Topics include the principles of fall protection, the components of fall arrest systems, the limitations of fall arrest equipment and OSHA policies regarding fall protection. Students will participate in workshops demonstrating the inspection and use of fall protection equipment, residential construction fall protection, training requirements and developing a fall protection program.

Industrial Hygiene: Recognizing and Controlling Workplace Hazards
Industrial Hygiene focuses on anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, preventing and controlling environmental factors or stresses in the workplace that may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being or significant discomfort among workers or others in the community. Engineering, work practice and administrative controls are the primary means of reducing employee exposure to occupational hazards.

  • Engineering controls minimize employee exposure by either reducing or removing the hazard at the source or isolating the worker from the hazard.
  • Work practice controls alter the how a task is performed by changing existing work practices to minimize exposures, inspecting and maintaining process and control equipment on a regular basis, implementing good housekeeping procedures and providing adequate supervision.
  • Administrative controls include controlling employees' exposure by scheduling production and tasks to minimize exposure levels, such as scheduling hazardous operations when the fewest employees are present.

  • September 14-22 Starts this Weekend in Dublin, CA

Electrical Safety Training Makes the Jobsite Safer for All Workers
OSHA’s Electrical Standards require employers to protect all employees who work on or near an electrical power circuit or are exposed to electrical hazards; to train all workers who can be exposed to electrical hazards; and to retrain or update workers as needed to maintain safety awareness.
Effective electrical safety training addresses the major hazards that could be encountered by employees working directly or indirectly with electrical systems, including:
  • Instruction on ground-fault circuit interrupters for all workers who use power tools and other electrical equipment; 
  • Proper inspection, use and maintenance of all electrical equipment, including extension cords, and guidelines for removal from service to reduce hazards;
  • How to recognize a locked and tagged electrical source and to understand how the Lockout/Tagout process affects their specific work areas;
  • Awareness of protective barriers, approach boundaries and warning signage;
  • Required personal protective equipment (PPE) and its proper use.
