Industrial Health and Safety Courses
Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED
The AHA’s Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED course trains participants to provide first aid, CPR, and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely, and effective manner. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).
Bloodborne Pathogen Training
The Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens course teaches students how to protect themselves and others from being exposed to blood or blood-containing materials. This course is designed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for bloodborne pathogens training when paired with site-specific instruction. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).
Personnel are trained to identify the potential hazards of hazardous materials and isolate or evacuate the area as necessary. Almost every company has hazardous materials in their facility. It could be concentrated industrial cleaner, or the sulfuric acid in the forklift batteries. OSHA requires all employers to provide Hazard Communication training for new employees and additional training when new hazards enter the work force.
If there is a potential for exposures to hazardous materials, those workers must receive Hazard Material Awareness training under OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.120 also known as HazWOpER or Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.
Workers trained to the Awareness Level can use labels, placards and markings to identify the potential hazards of chemicals. HazWOpER Awareness training also requires workers to have a basic understanding of how to isolate the area of a chemical spill and how to contact their immediate supervisor.
Human Factors & Safety
Human Factors was first developed by the aviation industry over 25 years ago. Aviation experts recognized human behavior accounted for more than 85% of preventable causes in aviation mishaps. Today, healthcare and industrial health and safety must embrace the concepts of Human Factors to prevent accidents at the root cause. Human Factors Safety Training helps build the defenses that reduce and mitigate human errors by developing an awareness of the individual factors that can impact human performance that lead to errors in the first place.
