Are you unclear on what the new 2015 Confined Spaces in Construction and the new 2017 Silica in Construction Standards are all about and how they apply to your company?
This is a complete treatment of the Confined Spaces in Construction Standard from “A to Z”. (However we will not be training people to conduct Entry Rescue.) It is also a complete analysis of the Crystalline Silica Standard.
Why Should You Attend?
Many owners, plant managers, supervisors and even safety professionals are overwhelmed and therefore do little to nothing about it. You can understand it. You can learn how to apply it. You can do more than just comply; you can have confidence and policies that are relevant. Don´t wait until someone gets hurt or OSHA fines you to get serious about putting these two standards into practice at your company!
This seminar will 2/3 of the day on Confined Spaces and about 1/3 of the day on Silica. The learning objectives for both Confined Space and Silica are:
Walk away understanding what is required by OSHA at a minimum.
Walk away understanding how to apply each standard to your job.
Walk away with templates and well-organized reference materials to help you create a relevant policy for your company.
