Asbestos Awareness

Proficient Training & Consulting will provide your organization with asbestos awareness training that complies with OSHA’s requirements for Class IV Asbestos Work. We will work with you to determine if your facility has any special areas of concern regarding asbestos and incorporate this into your training program. We will provide training certificates of completion, and let you know when annual training is due.

OSHA 30 hour/OSHA 10 Hour

Several facilities are now requiring that their contractors have OSHA 10 Hour training and contractor supervisors require OSHA 30 Hour Training. Proficient Training & Consulting has several authorized OSHA 10/30 Hour trainers who can provide onsite or offsite training. We will work around your scheduling needs while providing the required training to satisfy the OSHA requirements.

First Aid/CPR/AED

Proficient Training & Consulting prides itself on providing site specific training to ensure that companies get the training they need without paying for extra time and training they don’t need. We can provide thorough, relevant First Aid/CPR/AED training that is right for your company.

Lock Out/Tag Out

The training team at Proficient Training & Consulting has extensive first-hand knowledge of lock out issues, and we understand how important comprehensive lock out training can be to prevent workplace injuries. It is vital that workers understand lock out procedures in their work environment.

Proficient Training & Consulting will provide thorough, relevant, site specific lock out training for your site. We will cover the lock out issues specific to your company’s issues, making sure the “hows & whys” of lock out are addressed.

Fall Protection

Falls are a leading cause of workplace injuries and fatalities. There are numerous fall protection devices (harnesses, lanyards, anchorage points, etc.) on the market, but it is extremely important that workers are trained in the proper use of fall protection. If fall protection is not used correctly it may not be providing any protection to the employee, or worse yet, it may make the task more dangerous.

The trainers at Proficient Training & Consulting have firsthand experience in the use of fall protection. We will provide hands-on training to your employees in the use and inspection of fall protection, focusing on your company’s specific fall protection needs.

Topics covered include:

  • Overview of OSHA’s permit-required confined space entry standards
  • OSHA definitions of key terms
  • Health and safety hazards associated with confined space work
  • Identifying which confined spaces are permit-required
  • OSHA requirements for reclassification of permit spaces to non-permit

Personal Protective Equipment

Here’s what OSHA says about training requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE):

*Employers are required to train each employee who must use PPE. Employees must be trained to know at least the following:

  • When PPE is necessary.
  • What PPE is necessary.
  • How to properly put on, take off, adjust and wear the PPE.
  • The limitations of the PPE.
  • Proper care, maintenance, useful life and disposal of PPE.

Employers should make sure that each employee demonstrates an understanding of the PPE training as well as the ability to properly wear and use PPE before they are allowed to perform work requiring the use of the PPE. If an employer believes that a previously trained employee is not demonstrating the proper understanding and skill level in the use of PPE, that employee should receive retraining. Other situations that require additional or retraining of employees include the following circumstances: changes in the workplace or in the type of required PPE that make prior training obsolete.

The employer must document the training of each employee required to wear or use PPE by preparing a certification containing the name of each employee trained, the date of training and a clear identification of the subject of the certification.

Here’s how Proficient Training & Consulting can help you accomplish these requirements:

  • Assess the PPE utilized in your company
  • Create a training program focusing specifically on the PPE your workers use, while meeting all of OSHA’s PPE training requirements
  • Track the training and provide certificates of completion for your employees

Respiratory Protection
When effective engineering controls are not feasible or sufficient, or while they are being instituted, OSHA requires that employees use appropriate respirators. When your employees need respirators to do their jobs, setting up an effective respirator safety program and conducting employee respirator training are essential.

The Respiratory Protection regulation (29 CFR 1910.134) establishes uniform guidelines for protecting your workers when they must work in hazardous atmospheres.
