Workers will learn the appropriate duties of entrants, attendants and supervisors. Also the procedures to enter and control permit required spaces according to the OSHA standards. This course is designed for workers entering into confined spaces, how to determine classifications of confined spaces and preparing for entries.

“STOP THE BLEED” TRAINING
Stop the Bleed is intended to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. SIBA’s Stop the Bleed Course will cover what to do in case of a bleeding emergency and common techniques to stop blood loss. This includes hands on training using treated gauze to pack a wound and instruction on when/how to apply a tourniquet. A fee will be charged for the stop the bleed course in order to cover the cost for rental of equipment. The fee per person will be determined by the number of attendees in the class. “Stop the Bleed” can be a standalone course or be added onto a First Aid/CPR/AED class. It is approximately a 2-hour session. Contact SIBA with any questions.

With the advent of January 2020 legislation and to maximize the effectiveness of drug-free workplace policies and programs, each supervisor should receive training on how to recognize and deal with employees who have job impairment, personal, and family problems that could be related to alcohol or other drugs. Supervisor responsibilities will be paramount in recognizing these conditions. The goal of this training will be to educate the supervisors (and employees) in signs and symptoms to look for and how to deal with substance abuses. The Reasonable Suspicion part of the training will train supervisors to better recognize signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol use and abuse. Participants will receive a completion card and certificate upon completion of the course. This course meets DOT compliance requirements.


OTHER NEW COURSES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
(THESE COURSES AND MORE WILL BE SCHEDULED IN THE COMING MONTHS AT BOTH SIBA LOCATIONS)

EMERGENCY ACTION PLANNING(29 CFR 1910.38(a)
An emergency action plan (EAP) is a written document required by OSHA standards. The purpose of an EAP is to facilitate and organize employer and employee actions during workplace emergencies. An emergency action plan and proper employee training (such that employees understand their roles and responsibilities within the plan) will result in fewer and less severe employee injuries and less structural damage to the facility during emergencies.

FIRE PROTECTION
Employers should train workers about fire hazards in the workplace and what to do in a fire emergency. If you want your workers to evacuate, you should train them on how to escape. This training will train them to use fire extinguishers, the basics of fire and the different types of fires. This training is only awareness level and instructs them on fight or flight.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION TRAINING PLANS AND REQUIREMENTS
This training is about the respiratory protection requirements for any worker who is required to wear a respirator. Employers are required to provide free respiratory protection to workers who wear respirators on the job. Included in these requirements are all respirators from full face to dust masks and everything in between.


HEARING CONSERVATION PLAN AND REQUIREMENTS
OSHA rules describe the permissible exposure limit for noise in the construction industry is 90 decibels, measured as an 8-hour time weighted average. At that level, employers are required to provide a hearing conservation program for workers. Quantifying the decibel numbers is also the responsibility of the employer. We supply both plan development and training for all workers.
