RedVector is happy to announce 6 remastered General Industry Safety Courses.
General Industry Safety – Hazard Communication
Chemicals can pose a danger to your health and the environment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that there could be as many as 650,000 chemicals in use in the United States, and these chemicals are in over 5 million workplaces. This means that there are over 40 million American workers potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals while at their jobs. This interactive online course explores the various methods that employers use to communicate information about hazardous chemicals in the workplace. You will learn requirements for labeling chemical containers and how to use Safety Data Sheets to identify chemical hazards in your workplace. Additionally, you will learn about employee safety training and hazard communication requirements.
General Industry Safety – Personal Protective Equipment
Various types of protective clothing protect workers from many job-related hazards, and protective equipment protects a worker’s head, hands, and feet. In certain situations, a worker may also need equipment that provides respiratory protection and fall protection. This interactive online course teaches you about a variety of protective clothing you can wear to protect yourself against job-related hazards. You will learn about the protective equipment you can use to protect your head, eyesight, and hearing. Additionally, you will learn about equipment used for respiratory protection and equipment used for fall protection.
General Industry Safety – Confined Spaces
Part of your job may involve entering and working in confined spaces. If you must work in a confined space, your life may depend on being properly informed about the hazards in the space and being properly prepared to protect yourself from those hazards. In this interactive, online course, we will discuss the general requirements of the OSHA Permit-required Confined spaces standard (29 CFR 1910.146). We will review the hazards associated with confined spaces and learn what you can do to protect yourself from them.
General Industry Safety – Fall Protection
Your job may often require you to work at elevated locations. Having appropriate fall protection in these situations is vital. Otherwise, you could find yourself plummeting toward serious injury. Employees must understand the regulations and be proactive in protecting themselves from any potential injuries. In this interactive, online course, we’ll introduce you to the OSHA Fall Protection standard under 29 CFR, 1910. We will review situations where fall protection is needed, and discuss the basic means by which fall protection can be achieved. We’ll also look at a specific kind of personal fall protection: a personal fall arrest system. Finally, we’ll discuss how to properly select, use, and care for a personal fall arrest system.
General Industry Safety – Hearing Conservation
How loud is too loud? When your job requires you to be exposed to high noise levels, it is essential for you to take steps to protect your hearing. Infrequent exposure to loud noises may not be hazardous, but prolonged exposures to these noises can cause irreversible hearing loss. In this interactive online course, you will examine hazardous noise levels, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA’s, occupational noise exposure standard, and how protection equipment, such as earplugs and earmuffs, can help protect your hearing.
New Employee Safety Orientation
All occupations, even ones that are not typically assigned to dangerous tasks, have certain safety hazards associated with them. For some occupations, the hazards are obvious. For other occupations, however, the hazards may be less apparent. It would be difficult to fully discuss all safety rules and regulations to avoid every danger you could potentially encounter in your job. So, instead, this online interactive course provides a basic overview of safety issues to help improve your safety awareness. These safety issues include safe work habits, which should be part of your daily routine; personal protective equipment, which may be required to maintain your health and safety on the job; hazard communication, which provides vital information about chemicals and other hazards that affect working conditions; and fire safety, which is a critical concern in any workplace.
