TCEQ OSHA 10-HOUR & 30-HOUR COURSES WITH CEUS

There is a nationally recognized standard of safety training called the OSHA Outreach Training Program. Joe Baldwin is an OTI “OSHA Training Institute” certified trainer. Joe brings his 35 years of work experience into the class room to give you a real world hands on approach to safety training. He has an ability to bring to life, otherwise boring regulations, in such a way that people leave with a renewed since of confidence and a “I Can” make a difference attitude. Baldwin EH&S takes the time and effort to understand your industry and specific work place. With this insight and understanding we are able to customize your training program so that employers and employees gain greater perspective of their role in Safety.

As we also looked into the Utility Industry in Texas and discovered that there was a disconnect between OSHA’s nationally recognized standard of training and the training that is currently available to Water and Wastewater Operators in Texas.

We have bridged the gap.

The courses that we have developed are designed after the OSHA 10 & 30 hour Training Courses. At this time, Baldwin EH&S Consultants is the only company that can issue multiple certificates for both TCEQ Training with Continuing Education Credits & OSHA 10 or 30 Hour Card. These courses can be presented as standalone courses or combined into a greater Value Add training program.

CONFINED SPACE ENTRY SAFETY TRAINING, COURSE CODE 1424

8 HOUR TRAINING WITH 8 CEUS UPON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION
TARGET AUDIENCE: CEUS FOR CURRENT LICENSE HOLDERS, CEUS FOR RENEWAL OF LICENSE, WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS & WASTE-WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS

CONFINED SPACE ENTRY – AN OVERVIEW OF THE STANDARDS

GOALS

The basic goal of the Confined Space Awareness Safety Program is to ensure employers and employees know about Confined Space work hazards and how to protect themselves. The desired outcome of the training is to help to reduce the incidence leading to workplace accidents, illness, and injuries and to reinforce safe work practices.

PURPOSE

Confined Space Entry is an integral part of water and waste-water safety. Each year there are hundreds of accidents and injuries, some even resulting in death, associated with Confined Space Entry. OSHA’s definition of a confined space is “any space that is large enough to enter and perform work, has limited access and egress and is not designed for continuous human occupancy”. Any work space that meets this definition falls under the Confined Space Regulations. Within the water and waste-water industry there are literally thousands of spaces that fall under Confined Space. Examples include manholes, collection basins, tanks, pits, storage vessels, etc.

Confined spaces may contain many safety and health hazards. They may include, but are not limited to: asphyxiation (unconscious or lack of oxygen), falls, burns, engulfment, chemical exposure, job function.

Following confined space procedures and safe work practices are essential to protect your health and safety. The goal is to control confined space environments and prevent accidents that could lead to injury and death. If you have a question about a confined space, ask your supervisor.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY AND LOCK-OUT / TAG-OUT COURSE CODE 584

4 HOUR TRAINING WITH 4 CEUS UPON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION
TARGET AUDIENCE: CEUS FOR CURRENT LICENSE HOLDERS, CEUS FOR RENEWAL OF LICENSE, WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS,& WASTE-WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS

ELECTRICAL SAFETY AND LOCK-OUT / TAG-OUT – AN OVERVIEW OF THE STANDARDS

GOALS

The basic goal of an Electrical & Lock-out / Tag-out training course is to ensure employers and employees know about electrical hazards in their workplace, how to control them and how to protect themselves. This in turn will help to reduce the incidence of chemical source illness and injuries.

PURPOSE

Electricity is accepted as a source of power without much thought to the hazards encountered. Some employees work with electricity directly. This is the case with engineers, electricians, electronic technicians, OSSF installers, irrigators, plant maintenance personnel, and power line workers. Others, such as office workers, plant operators, equipment operators, and salespeople work with it indirectly. OSHA’s electrical standards address this serious workplace hazard which exposes employees to such dangers as electric shock, electrocution, fires and explosions. The objective of the standards is to minimize the potential hazards by specifying design characteristics of safety in use of electrical equipment and systems.

HAZARD COMMUNICATION COURSE CODE 572

4 HOUR TRAINING WITH 4 CEUS UPON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION
TARGET AUDIENCE: CEUS FOR CURRENT LICENSE HOLDERS, CEUS FOR RENEWAL OF LICENSE, WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS & WASTE-WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS

HAZARD COMMUNICATION – YOUR “RIGHT TO KNOW”

GOALS

The basic goal of a Hazard Communication Program and the Texas Hazard Communication Act is to ensure employers and employees know about workplace hazardous chemicals s and how to protect themselves. This in turn will help to reduce the incidence of chemical source illness and injuries.

PURPOSE

Chemicals pose a wide range of health hazards (such as irritation, sensitization, and carcinogenicity) and physical hazards (such as flammability, corrosion, and reactivity). This standard is designed to ensure that information about these hazards and associated protective measures is disseminated to workers and employers. This is accomplished by requiring chemical manufacturers and importers to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import; and providing information about them through labels on shipped containers and more detailed information sheets called material data safety sheets or MSDS’s. All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must prepare and implement a written hazard communication program. They must also ensure that all containers are labeled, employees are provided access to MSDS’s, and an effective training program is conducted for all potentially exposed employees.

The OSHA standard and Texas Workers the right-to-know provides information workers need to identify hazards and identities of the chemicals they are exposed to in the workplace. When workers have this information, they can effectively participate in their employers’ protective programs and take steps to protect themselves. In addition, the standard gives employers the information they need to design and implement an effective protective program for employees potentially exposed to hazardous chemicals.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) AND HAND & POWER TOOLS SAFETY COURSE CODE 571

4 HOUR TRAINING WITH 4 CEUS UPON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION
TARGET AUDIENCE:CEUS FOR CURRENT LICENSE HOLDERS, CEUS FOR RENEWAL OF LICENSE, WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS & WASTE-WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND HAND & POWER TOOLS – AN OVERVIEW OF THE STANDARDS

GOALS

The basic goal of the PPE training course is to ensure employers and employees know about hazards in their workplace and what PPE is available to protect themselves. Hand & Power Tools takes a look into the safety use of hand tools and powered tools including electrically powered, pneumatic, hydraulic and powder actuated tools and their machine guarding issues. This in turn will help to reduce the incidence of chemical source illness and injuries.

PURPOSE

Personal Protective Equipment / Hand and Power Tool Safety Awareness pertains to the individual employees’ training requirements to receive information about the potentially hazardous conditions they may encounter in the workplace and the protective equipment that is available to help prevent accidents and injuries. Employees from office staff to operators that utilize simple hand tools to electrical powered equipment, They may all encounter or, unknowingly be exposed, to potential hazards. The Personal Protective Equipment section of this course is designed to establish safe work practices, help employees recognize hazards, and choose protective equipment specific to potential hazards while at work. This course is also designed to help employees recognize and eliminate unsafe conditions involving equipment and tools.

EXCAVATION & TRENCHING AWARENESS TRAINING, COURSE CODE 1425

4 HOUR TRAINING WITH 4 CEUS UPON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION
TARGET AUDIENCE:CEUS FOR CURRENT LICENSE HOLDERS, CEUS FOR RENEWAL OF LICENSE, WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS & WASTE-WATER SYSTEM OPERATORS

EXCAVATION & TRENCHING AWARENESS TRAINING– AN OVERVIEW OF THE STANDARDS

GOALS

The goal of this course is to establish safe work practices, evaluate conditions and understand the protective systems associated with excavations.

Topics include:

  • Identifying risk factors
  • Design of protective systems
  • Soil types
  • Shoring, sloping and combines systems
  • Material and equipment
  • Competent person, inspections and planning
PURPOSE

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have specific regulations to protect employees while working in trenches and excavations. Each excavation or trench is required to be inspected by a competent person daily. The inspections shall be conducted prior to the start of work and as needed throughout the shift. Inspections shall also be made after every rainstorm or other hazard increasing occurrence. When the competent person finds evidence of a situation that could result in a possible cave-in, or other hazardous conditions, exposed employees must be removed from the excavation until the necessary precautions have been taken to ensure their safety.

Each soil or rock deposit shall be classified in accordance with the definitions in the OSHA standards. The classification of the deposits shall be made based on the results of at least one visual and one manual analysis. Soil types may be reclassified as necessary to reflect changes in the excavation. An excavation permit has been included to assist employers in meeting the OSHA requirements. The objectives of the standards are to minimize hazards by specifying design characteristics of safety systems to be used when working in or around an excavation or trench.
