30 Hour OSHA
General Industry Training Many standards promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) explicitly require the employer to train employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. Other OSHA standards make it the employer’s responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are “certified,” “competent,” or “qualified” - meaning that they have had special previous training, in or out of the workplace. The term “designated” personnel means selected or assigned by the employer or the employer’s representative as being qualified to perform specific duties. These requirements reflect OSHA’s belief that training is an essential part of every employer’s safety and health program for protecting workers from injuries and illnesses. This program will include in-depth training on: Introduction to OSHA Working and Walking Surfaces, Exit Routes and Emergency Action Plans, Electrical, Lockout/Tagout, Personal Protective Equipment, Material Handling, Hazard Communication, Machine Guarding, Permit Required Confined Space, Powered Industrial Vehicles (forklifts), Fall Protection, Recordkeeping, and other selected OSHA topics to meet the site specific needs. Participants will receive OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910 Regulations manual, sample safety policies, sample procedures, and training handouts to be used at their facility. OSHA’s 30 Hour General Industry card will be earned upon completion of this class. Attendance in class is required each day. This program will be held at Illinois Valley Community College, 815 N. Orlando Smith Avenue, Oglesby and is offered in partnership with Rock Valley College and Kishwaukee Community College. Mon-Thu Jeff Clark
