Our 10-hour OSHA training program is intended for entry level workers, and is the most common voluntary outreach training program that employers seek. Our 30-hour training program is intended to provide workers with safety responsibility a greater depth of OSHA-related information. All training provides an overview of the hazards a worker may encounter on a job site. Emphasis is placed on hazard identification, avoidance, and control/prevention. We will accommodate audience needs to customize the content (although most of the curriculum has mandatory topics and timeframes specified). Upon completion of the course, OSHA Training Institute wallet cards are provided and never expire.
Falls are the #1 cause of death in the construction industry and consistently the most commonly cited OSHA standard. Lack of proper safety training is currently #9 on the list of common OSHA violations.

OSHA regulations state that the employer shall provide a training program for each employee who might be exposed to fall hazards. Even without injury or death, OSHA can impose a $7,000 fine for untrained workers. Make sure your facility is taking proper measures to mitigate the risk of injury and citations!

Conney Safety provides customizable Fall Protection Training for Construction based on your company’s unique needs.

Our training is conducted by a Competent Person and can cover any combination of the following:

  • Nature of fall hazards in the work area
  • Use and operation of personal fall arrest systems being used (or other protective systems)
  • Review and/or development of fall protection plans
  • Identifying fall clearance requirements and how it pertains to where employees will be working
  • Equipment inspection procedures
  • Discussion of rescue plans
  • Other topics – as needed

While every facility is different in the equipment used and timeframe needed for training, class timeframes can range from:

  • General Awareness Training (entry level): 45 minutes – 1.5 hours
  • Competent Person Training (more advanced - supervisory level): 1.5 - 4 hours
OSHA’s “Walking-Working Surfaces” standard is meant to address the serious slips, trips, and falls that occur every day in businesses across the country. Employees who work at heights in “other-than-construction” type businesses are required to have fall protection training when working above 4'. Also, any employee working on aerial or scissor lift vehicles must have documented fall protection training and operator certification.

Conney Safety’s customized Fall Protection Training tailors training to meet the needs of the workers involved with at-height activities. While the agenda for this training will mirror what we cover in our Construction-focused training sessions, we focus this training on General Industry work activities that are specific to your organization.

Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered to be “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter into, work in, or exit from them. Often, employees who work in confined spaces face increased risk of exposure to serious physical injury from hazards such as entrapment, engulfment, and hazardous atmospheric conditions. If employees are expected to enter confined spaces, the employer is required to develop a written permit-required entry program and provide training for the entrant, attendant, and the supervisor. Conney can help in developing entry programs, as well as implementing Confined Space Trainings!

Training may cover the following:

  • Overview of OSHA’s permit-required confined space entry standard
  • OSHA definition of key terms
  • Health and safety hazards associated with confined space work
  • Identifying which confined spaces are “permit-required” (and potential reclassification)
  • Signage requirements
  • Duties of entrants, attendants, and entry supervisors
  • Requirements for confined space rescue and emergency services
  • OSHA requirements for dealing with on-site contractors
  • PPE requirements
  • Identifying and measuring atmospheric hazards
  • Ventilation techniques

Our Confined Space Training options include:

  • General Confined Space Training (entry level): 1 - 2 hours
  • Site-Specific Confined Space Training (more advanced level): 2 - 4 hours

Class length will depend on the complexity of the employers’ work environment, hazards involved, and many other factors. We can assess the situation, determine the agenda, and set class time expectations.
The employee “right to know” law has been a commonly cited OSHA standard since its inception in 1980. The Hazard Communication Standard is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).

This updated standard requires employers to train employees on understanding the following:

  • Hard Classification: Provides specific criteria for classification of health and physical hazards, as well as classification of mixtures.
  • Labels: Chemical manufacturers and importers will be required to provide a label that includes a harmonized signal word, pictogram, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category. Precautionary statements must also be provided.
  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS): Formally called MSDS, these new documents now must have a 16-section format.
Our customizable Hazard Communication Trainings cover these topics and more! Trainings can commonly take between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on the nature of the business and the number of chemicals that the employees work with.
PPE is a very broad, but extremely important part of the employee safety education process. Employers are required to train each employee before they are allowed to perform work requiring the use of PPE.

At minimum, employees must be trained to know the following:

  • Selecting the correct PPE
  • Sizing the right PPE
  • What are the PPE’s limitations?
  • When to discard PPE

Our customizable PPE Trainings can cover such topics as:

  • Respirators
  • Hand Protection (Gloves)
  • Chemical Suits/Rainwear/Aprons/Sleeves
  • Hearing Protection (Earplugs/Earmuffs)
  • Hard Hats
  • Safety Toe Shoes
  • Heat/Cold Stress
  • Welding PPE

Training time can widely vary and is dependent on your company's needs.

Employees are required to wear respirators whenever engineering and work practice control measures are not adequate to prevent atmospheric contamination at the worksite. When employees must work in environments with insufficient oxygen or where harmful dusts, smokes, mists, fumes, gases, vapors, or sprays are present, they need respirators.

Training is essential for correct respirator use. Employers must teach supervisors and workers how to properly select, use, and maintain respirators—and we can help with this!

Our Respiratory Protection Trainings are designed to cover:

  • Why respirator use is necessary
  • Selecting the correct respirator for the application
  • Limitations, use, and fitting of the respirator
  • Change-out schedules (air purifying)
  • Inspection, cleaning, and storage procedures
  • Requirements for confined space rescue and emergency services
  • How to use the respirator effectively in an emergency
  • How to recognize medical signs and symptoms that may limit or prevent the effective use of the respirator

Our Respiratory Protection Training options include:

  • General Awareness Training (entry level): 15 - 30 minutes
  • Site-Specific Respirator Training (advanced level): 1 - 3 hours
OSHA has developed the HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response) program to protect workers at hazardous sites. These are extensive regulations that must be properly followed to ensure the health and safety of workers.

Conney offers a course that meets the requirements outlined in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 for 8 hours of annual refresher training for workers at hazardous waste sites.

The course topics include:

  • HAZWOPER regulations
  • Site characterization
  • Toxicology
  • Hazard recognition
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Decontamination
  • Medical surveillance
  • Confined space entry
  • Emergency procedures

Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a certificate of completion.
Workers performing service or maintenance on machinery and equipment may be exposed to injuries from the unexpected energization, startup of the machinery or equipment, or release of stored energy in the equipment. Employers must provide initial training before starting service and maintenance activities, as well as retraining as necessary. In addition, employers must certify that the training has been given to all employees covered by the Lockout/Tagout standard. Our customizable Lockout/Tagout Trainings can help ensure these guidelines are properly followed.

Our Lockout/Tagout Trainings can cover:

  • Key components of an energy control program
  • Six main elements that should be contained in lockout/tagout procedures
  • Key elements of a periodic inspection of the energy control device to restore energy and equipment
  • Explanation of group lockout/tagout
  • Steps to follow to perform testing or positioning on a piece of equipment being repaired
  • Best practices for the most effective lockout/tagout program implementation and operation

Lockout/Tagout Training requires customization to apply these principles directly to the work functions and equipment that employees will encounter during their work day. Training classes can last between 45 minutes – 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the shutdown procedures and number of lockout concepts. Longer training times could result if combined with electrical/arc flash training.
OSHA regulations in 29 CFR 1910.332 require electrical safety training for any employees who may reasonably be expected to face risk of injury due to electric shock or other electrical hazards. This basic safety training must cover the safety-related electrical work practices that are mandated by other OSHA rules, as well as any additional safety practices that may be needed to keep workers safe.

Conney provides these Electrical/Arc Flash Trainings, which can run from 30 minutes to 4 hours, depending if “qualified worker” documentation training is required, along with the complexity of the team’s current work environment. OSHA considers any workers who will work on or near exposed energized parts to be “qualified workers,” and those individuals need specialized training to help prevent electric shock. Other workers are considered “unqualified workers,” and primarily need training to recognize hazardous situations and keep away from them. “Qualified workers” must be trained to deal with those situations safely, as part of their duties.
OSHA requires all powered industrial vehicle (PIV) operators to receive initial forklift training, after an incident/accident, and again every three years. The training should emphasize the workplace’s features that will affect how the vehicle must be operated as well as the general safety rules applicable to operating any powered industrial vehicle.

Our Forklift Trainings consist of a combination of formal instruction and practical training, and cover:

  • Characteristics of the powered industrial truck(s) the employee will be allowed to operate
  • Operating environment
  • Requirements of the OSHA standard
  • Employee evaluation
Excavating is recognized as one of the most hazardous construction operations. Our Excavation/Trenching class is customized to either give basic excavation/trenching safety awareness or to help teach employees to be a Competent Person for a given work site (including all the requirements for the OSHA standard). Our courses ensure that students learn about various standardized construction practices for identifying and correcting hazards.

Our customizable Excavation/Trenching Training topics can include:

  • Introduction to trenching and excavation
  • History of OSHA excavation standards
  • Definitions
  • Specific excavation requirements
  • Soil classification systems
  • Requirements for protective systems
  • Designs using the OSHA standard
  • Support systems, shield systems, and other protective systems
  • Materials and equipment
  • Installation and removal

Training classes can run from 1 - 2 hours in length.
OSHA has issued a standard (29 CFR 1926.1153) that requires General industry employers to limit worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica and to take other steps to protect workers. This standard requires engineering controls (such as water spray to control the dust, ventilation systems, or even vacuums) to help limit the exposure to this dangerous dust. If these engineering systems cannot adequately control the dust, then respirators will need to be provided. Some sites will be required to use air monitoring to determine employee exposures (if work activities do not cleanly fit into Table 1 of the standard).

On top of this, OSHA 1910.1053 is the new standard for addressing respirable crystalline silica in Construction. While exposure limits are the same, workplace control measures can be more challenging in a “non-construction” environment.

Every employer has a unique challenge when it comes to the respirable silica standard. Our customized training will address your specific work environment, giving the employees appropriate options to keep them safe when exposed to this dangerous substance. Employees will benefit by best understanding why this standard is so important to their health now and in the future. Classes will run approximately 1 – 2 hours.

Our customized Respirable Crystalline Silica Trainings will teach employees:

  • Key components of the standard
  • Dangers of respirable crystalline silica
  • Identifying the roles of the Competent Person
  • Three specific options for compliance on any given job site
  • Working around other subcontractors creating dust
  • Proper use of equipment and minimizing dust exposure
  • Sampling techniques – overview
  • Written program objectives (changes needed when relocating to new work site)
