OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard, also known as "Right to Know Law," or HazCom is in Federal Regulation (29 CFR 1910.1200).  OSHA made changes to modify the Standard and align it with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), a worldwide standard in 2012.  The regulation requires chemical manufacturers and employers to communicate chemical hazard information to employees.  

This course will cover the Standard, the company written control programs, safety data sheets (SDS), labeling, and hazard classifications, and associated pictograms,  the identification of risks of exposure to hazardous chemicals,  controls, and PPE.


Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a colorless gas with a strong odor of rotten eggs. Exposure to hydrogen sulfide may irritate the eyes and respiratory system and even cause death.  Workers need to be trained and aware of the dangers without exception.

This course will provide the latest information and direction to your employees, so they are informed, respect the danger,  and know how to protect themselves.


Hazard Assessment involves inspecting a facility for compliance and classifying the potential hazards that employees can confront while working. One of the essential elements in determining a company's program requirements is conducting an assessment which will decide what risks are present, or are likely to be present, and what training controls and protection must be instituted. The best solution is to employ the "new eyes" of our consultants who are not in your operation daily and will see many hazards missed by those who work there regularly.


Developing and executing a control of hazardous energy Lock-out/Tag-out program (LOTO) 29 CFR, part 1910.147, for the protection of workers who perform servicing and maintenance activities on machinery and equipment is a significant responsibility of every employer.

This course incorporates the OSHA Machinery and Machine Guarding Standards and outlines the process to identify, select and adequately safeguard machinery to protect employees and others in the work area and deliver suitable training in safe work practices.

Any machine part, function, or process which may cause injury must be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact with it can hurt the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be either controlled or eliminated. Even the most extensive safeguarding system cannot offer adequate protection unless a worker knows how to use it and why. Specific and detailed training is a vital part of an effort to provide safeguarding against machine hazards to prevent injury. 


OSHA fines can run from $7,000 to $70,000 per violation.  Be prepared, make sure you and your team know what to do, your rights and responsibilities if an OSHA inspector arrives at your site.  Our experienced Safety & Health professionals can come to your site providing experience and information that will ensure you are prepared.

Homicide is currently the fourth-leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the United States workplace. Violence is a significant concern for employers and employees nationwide. Your Safety & Health Program is not complete without       addressing workplace violence.

OSHA defines workplace violence as "any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening, disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal harassment to physical assaults and even homicide."  There are currently no specific OSHA standards for workplace violence, however under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide their employees with a place of employment that is “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm."  Training is a crucial element to ensure your employees are informed of the dangers and know what to do should threats occur.


This course covers the OSHA standard 29CFR part 1910.134 requirements for the establishment, maintenance, and monitoring of a respiratory protection program.
