The 10-hour OSHA training program is intended for entry level workers, and is the most common voluntary outreach training program that employers seek. The 30-hour training program is intended to provide workers with safety responsibility at a greater depth. 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). Documentation wallet cards from the OSHA Training Institute are provided and never expire. 2-hour electives for the OSHA 10-hour allow our customers the ability to customize some of the topics for meeting the requirements of this class. Additional time can be added beyond the scheduled time to allow for additional training customization and flexibility.
Ensuring that your employees are protected when working at heights is our goal. Fall protection equipment is only effective when workers know when, where, and how this equipment is required to be used. We specialize in customizing training to fit the needs of our customers, combining education on the hands-on use of equipment along with active learning activities to ensure all participants fully grasp the seriousness of this high-risk work activity. 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 hour
  • Competent Person Training (more advanced - supervisory level): 2 - 4 hours
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. 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

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
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 Hazard Communication Training 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 PPE Training 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
Conney Safety offers this training in all possible combinations and we have retained certified trainers all over the country allowing us to offer competitive pricing no matter where you are located. Our skilled instructors provide hands-on training to improve the health and safety outcome for all employees on the job. We use the First Voice Training network which is a dedicated training network of about 500 instructors that are accredited and train regularly using American Heart Association and National CPR/first aid science standards. Their core job duty and expertise is to perform First Aid/CPR/BBP and AED training on a regular basis, plus they are certified healthcare professionals that have experience with field rescue or public rescue situations. Our related training options include:

  • Adult CPR/AED Training (10 people minimum): 2.5 - 3 hours
  • Adult CPR/AED/FA/BBP Training (10 people minimum): 3.5 – 5 hours
  • First Aid/BBP Training (10 people minimum): 1 – 2 hours
NOTE: Other class combinations are available.
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. General Awareness (entry level): 15 minutes – 30 minutes. Site specific respirator training (advanced level) 1-3 hours. Our Respiratory Protection Training options include:

  • General Awareness Training (entry level): 15 - 30 minutes
  • Site-Specific Respirator Training (advanced level): 1 - 3 hours

Training is 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 emergency
  • How to recognize medical signs and symptoms that may limit or prevent the effective use of the respirator
OSHA has developed the HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response) program to protect workers at hazardous sites. These extensive regulations ensure their safety and health when followed correctly. 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, and 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. The employer must provide initial training before starting service and maintenance activities and must provide retraining as necessary. In addition, the employer must certify that the training has been given to all employees covered by the Lockout/Tagout standard.

Lockout/Tagout training requires customization to apply these principles directly to the work functions and equipment that employees will encounter during their work day. Our 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.

OSHA has compiled a list of job titles that typically include this kind of risk:

  • Blue collar supervisors
  • Electrical and electronic engineers
  • Electrical and electronic equipment assemblers
  • Electrical and electronic technicians
  • Electricians
  • Industrial machine operators
  • Material handling equipment operators
  • Mechanics and repairers
  • Painters
  • Riggers and roustabouts
  • Stationary engineers
  • Welders
Our Electrical/Arc Flash Trainings 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 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. Training must consist of a combination of formal instruction and practical training. Using both methods is the only way to ensure that the trainee receives and comprehends the instruction and uses the information to safely operate a powered industrial vehicle.

Covered in Training:

  • 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 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 (discussing all the requirements for the OSHA standard). It is important that students learn about various standardized construction practices for identifying and correcting hazards. Customized training classes can run from 1 to 2 hours in length.

Course topics can include:

  • Introduction to Trenching and Excavation
  • History of OSHA Excavation Standard
  • Definitions
  • Specific Excavation Requirements
  • Soil Classification System
  • Requirements for Protective Systems
  • Designs Using the OSHA Standard
  • Support Systems, Shield Systems, and Other Protective Systems
  • Materials and Equipment
  • Installation and Removal
OSHA has issued a standard (29 CFR 1926.1153) that requires 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).

Our customized Respirable Crystalline Silica Training 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)
OSHA 1910.1053 is the new standard for addressing respirable crystalline silica. While exposure limits are the same, workplace control measures can be more challenging in a “non-construction” environment. Every customer has a unique challenge. 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 would benefit from training to best understand why this standard is so important to their health now and in the future. This class is meant to be customized to our customers’ specific work environment and hazards (approximately 1 – 2 hours training time).
