Handouts:
Millions of workers wear respirators in workplaces across a wide variety of industries to protect against airborne contaminants and poor oxygen environments. But just wearing a respirator is not enough. Respirator users must know how to properly fit, use, inspect, and maintain their respirators to fully protect against respiratory hazards. This course will help trainees recognize respiratory hazards in the workplace and show them how to use and maintain respirators to keep themselves safe. Use this handout to accompany the Respiratory Protection PowerPoint and audio presentations.
Proposed Rules:
Department of Labor has given notice that it is revising its interpretation of independent contractor status under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in order to promote certainty for stakeholders, reduce litigation, and encourage innovation in the economy.
Training Exercises:
Flammable liquids cause many fires, explosions, injuries, and extensive damage to workplaces, but fortunately, there are well-known and effective measures to minimize risks and prevent incidents and exposures. The main objective of this course is to help you work more safely with flammable liquids. By the time the session is over, you will be able to train workers to recall the basic characteristics of a flammable liquid; identify flammable liquid hazards; describe precautions to safely store, dispense, transfer, and otherwise handle flammable liquids; recognize measures to prevent fires, explosions, and exposures; and explain actions to respond in an emergency involving flammable liquids. Use this exercise to help you conduct training on this important topic.

White Papers:
Why are there still shortages of N95 filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs)? Basically, when the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in March, a spike in demand for N95 respirators met a "just-in-time" supply chain. Both industry and government have moved to address shortages.
Questions & Answers:
We have three questions regarding what exposure limit standard should a facility follow for a specific chemical regulated by OSHA when OSHA has not assigned an occupational exposure limit (OEL) (i.e. a permissible exposure limit (PEL)) to that chemical.
Final Rules:
OSHA has issued a final rule to revise the standard for cranes and derricks in construction to provide specific exemptions and clarifications with regard to the application of the standard to cranes and derricks used for railroad roadway work.

PowerPoints:
Many workers who work in or walk through areas where forklifts operate are at risk of serious injury from contact with a forklift. There are simple, safe practices and precautions that pedestrians can take to avoid direct contact and prevent injury. This course provides information for workers and others who walk in areas where forklifts operate about the hazards of forklifts and safe practices to prevent contact incidents and injuries. Use this PowerPoint presentation to train your workers on pedestrian safety around forklifts.
