OSHA Training Courses
All OSHA training courses are presented by request and customized to address your particular workplace situation.

Lead in Construction

29 CFR 1926.21

This course covers the OSHA standard (1926.62) that protects construction workers from inorganic lead. Workers that disturb lead-based paint in demolition and remodeling may have excessive exposures to lead from tasks such as welding and cutting on painted metal. We will cover all of the requirements of the standard, including, the hazard assessment, or exposure monitoring, medical surveillance and record keeping, engineering controls, housekeeping and personal hygiene, PPE, respiratory protection, and employee information and training.

Worker Right-To-Know

[Chemical]Hazard Communication, OSHA 1910.1200

This training is offered as a tailored course for specific client needs. After all chemicals are identified, and supported with standard GHS safety data sheets (formerly MSDS) from the suppliers, this information is transformed into a succinct, understandable format for supervisors and workers.

Permit-Required Confined Spaces

OSHA 1910.146

Almost all clients have some areas that could be considered confined spaces, and OSHA requires a formal program that identifies and classifies them. We will assist in this requirement, and then tailor and perform the required training for plant employees and contractors. We will develop a written confined space control program that includes training, air monitoring, a permit system for entrance of the spaces, and contingency plans for rescue.

HAZWOPER (OSHA 1910.120)

Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response

By Request

This course is designed to fully comply with all regulatory standards and is tailored to the specific needs of the client (e.g. focused emergency response). Training is typically at the incident command level (V), and typically will cover subjects such as hazard assessment, scene management, spill control and containment, basic chemistry and toxicology, personal protective equipment (PPE) selection and use, respiratory protection, decontamination and air monitoring, as well as “hands-on” incident response (staged events). A study guide has been developed to supplement the course.

8 Hour / $180 per person / 10-person minimum


30CRF Part 46 and 48

Training and re-training of miners (and mine contractors)
By Request

Dr. Beaulieu is an MSHA certified instructor for miners employed in surface (IS: instructor-surface) and underground (IU: instructor-underground) mining operations. We conduct training for new miners, refresher training for experienced miners and newly-hired, experienced miners. Part 46 training is for sand, gravel, surface stone, clay, limestone, shell dredging, and colloidal phosphate mines. Part 48 training is appropriate for all other types of mining, including underground operations.

New miner (and contractor) training for surface mines is 24 hours in duration, and must include first aid training. It is not uncommon for a mine to require contract workers to come with all training complete. Site-specific training at the mine site will also be required prior to start of work (conducted at the mine). Part 48 training for underground and all other mines not covered in Part 46 is an additional 16 hours of training (total of 40 hours).

Refresher training for experienced miners and newly-hired, experienced miners is generally 8 hours in duration. Site-specific training at the mine site will also be required prior to start of work (conducted at the mine).
