Asbestos Hazard Awareness

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral with excellent heat- and fire-resistant properties. Throughout the 20th century, asbestos was commonly used in building materials, pipe coatings, flooring, paint and texturing, and many other applications. Unfortunately, inhaling asbestos fibers can cause asbestosis, a chronic - and often fatal - lung disease. Fortunately, U.S. manufacturing began phasing out asbestos in the 1970s. However, there are still many buildings, homes and commercial facilities that contain Asbestos-Containing Building Materials (ACBMs). This course will give workers an overview of asbestos safety, including how asbestos exposure can happen, the negative health effects of asbestos exposure, and common safety practices they must follow to avoid exposure. This course is presented in English and Spanish. This is a self-paced class you can take on your time schedule offered by ICTC through a partnership with SafetySkills.

Performing Safety Audits

In 2013 - the most recent year statistics were available - there were slightly more than three million reportable nonfatal injuries and illnesses among private industry workers, almost all of which could have been prevented. While training, personal protective equipment and other preventive measures play an important role in incident prevention, safety audits are a cornerstone of safe workplace culture. Safety audits can help employers and their employees identify existing workplace hazards and create appropriate controls to prevent injury or illness. This course is appropriate for all workers and supervisors in general, construction, oil and gas, and other industrial and office settings. This course does not address any specific OSHA training requirements but is instead based on industry best practices and accepted methods for performing effective safety audits. This course is presented in English & Spanish. This is a self-paced class you can take on your time schedule offered by ICTC through a partnership with SafetySkills.

Personal Protective Equipment

Personal protective equipment, or PPE, has been around throughout history in various forms. Even everyday clothing is a form of PPE, but many jobs and workplaces have unique hazards that require additional protection, such as gloves, boots, eye protection and many others. This course will teach employees to identify the need for PPE, define the concept of a hazard assessment, things to consider when choosing PPE, and the different types of PPE used to protect all parts of the body. This course is intended for general-industry employees who, during their regular work duties, are required to use personal protective equipment. This course is presented in English & Spanish.  This is a self-paced class you can take on your time schedule offered by ICTC through a partnership with SafetySkills.
