STP Course Description

Asbestos, Lead and Silica Awareness – 4 Hours
This class covers three of the most common construction airborne hazards, including the new rules for respirable crystalline silica. Crystalline silica is a common mineral found in many naturally-occurring and man-made materials used in construction (ex: brick, stone, concrete, mortar, sand). When these materials are disturbed (sanding, grinding, sawing, crushing, drilling, etc), silica dust is released. The first two hours of this course covers asbestos awareness for those students needing only this topic (they should register separately for the 2-hour asbestos awareness class on this same date). Following asbestos, the focus will be on lead and silica exposure hazards common in construction activities. This training is required for all workers who encounter lead, asbestos or silica in the workplace and covers required topics per Hazard Communication Standard

FIRST RESPONDER AWARENESS LEVEL – ANNUAL REFRESHER TRAINING-  4 hours

The 4-Hour First Responder Awareness (FRA) Training Classroom course is designed for firefighters, police officers, ambulance personnel, private industry emergency responders, military personnel, and government employees.

Per 1910.120(q)(6)(i):     “First responder awareness level. First responders at the awareness level are individuals who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and who have been trained to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper authorities of the release. They would take no further action beyond notifying the authorities of the release. First responders at the awareness level shall have sufficient training or have had sufficient experience to objectively demonstrate competency in the following areas:”

Employees at the awareness level are personnel likely to (1) discover or witness a hazardous material emergency, or (2) may be the first on the scene of an emergency involving hazardous material. These employees are expected to recognize which hazardous materials are present, protect themselves, call for trained personnel and secure the area. Their most important role is making proper notifications that begin the emergency response sequence. This level of training anticipates a response role which involves no potential for exposure to hazards related to the hazardous materials involved in an incident.

The employer is responsible for ensuring the health and safety of responding personnel as well as the protection of the public and the communities served. OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 and EPA 40 CFR 311 require that emergency response employees be completely trained before they perform at hazardous materials emergencies. Training managers face a significant challenge in ensuring that all responding personnel are fully trained and prepared while working within existing resources and conflicting priorities. An employer must provide annual refresher training which focuses on using available information sources to recognize and identify hazardous materials.

First Responders at the Awareness level are required to be trained in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.120(q), and also must have annual refresher training of sufficient content and duration to maintain responder competencies.

This course complies with the First Responders Awareness training requirements under Fed-OSHA, Cal-OSHA, and NFPA 472.

Students who take the First Responder Operations FRO training are not required to take the OSHA First Responder Awareness FRA training. The FRO course meets the training requirement for both responder levels.

Scaffolding – Competent Person Training - 3 hours

Scaffolding the second-most cited violation behind Fall Protection, and shows the need for proper safety training in this area of work.

A competent person is a necessity on every job site and is someone who has sufficient experience and/or knowledge to recognize scaffold hazards, correct unsafe conditions, and who has the ability to shut down the worksite until any hazards are corrected. The competent person should be the most knowledgeable person, in this case about scaffold safety, on site.

Scaffolding for the Competent Person course ensures that a student will receive all of the proper training pursuant to OSHAs requirement of Competent Persons for this standard 29 CFR 1926.451.  This course will go beyond the basic awareness level of introductory courses and into details necessary when learning not just how to protect yourself, but what it takes to create a safe working environment for those you may be responsible for.

 

Trenching and Excavation - Competent Person Training- 4 hours

The fatality rate for excavation work is 112% higher than the rate for general construction.  With the proper safety training in place, this number would be drastically reduced.  That is why OSHA requires a competent person be present at every job site.  OSHA defines a competent person as someone that “by way of training or experience, is knowledgeable of applicable standards, is capable of identifying workplace hazards relating to the specific operation, and has the authority to correct them.”

Many OSHA training classes provide basic or introductory information for workers.  Since the competent person is required to make important decisions, their training must go beyond the introductory level, to a level which provides enough information to be useful in their decision making process.

Trenching and Excavation for the Competent Person course goes beyond the basic awareness level of introductory courses and into the details necessary to create a safe environment for workers, as outlined in OSHAs standard 29 CFR 1926.650.  It helps a competent person answer important job site questions like: Are there adequate means of access and egress?  Are adjacent structures stabilized?  Does the procedure require benching or multiple benching? Shoring? Shielding?  Are means of egress from the cut, cavity, or depression no more than 25 feet from the work?
