BEST Training Course Descriptions
Employers are required to provide employees with personal protective equipment to minimize hazards in the workplace, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This personal protective equipment is necessary if an employer's other engineering, administrative and work practice controls aren't sufficient to provide the protection needed. OSHA requires that many categories of this equipment meet standards developed by the American National Standards Institute. Employers must offer training to their workers on how to use personal protective equipment.
Employers must train and, if necessary, retrain employees who use personal protective equipment on why it's necessary, what equipment is necessary and the limitations of this equipment. Employees in these training programs must learn how to properly don, remove, adjust and wear personal protective equipment as well as how to correctly care for, maintain, use and dispose of this equipment.

What is an Emergency Action Plan Training:
In compliance with OSHA's Emergency Action Plan standard, found at 29-CFR 1910.38, A business should have a written emergency action plan (EAP). The EAP addresses emergencies that the administration anticipates could possibly occur at your facilities. The EAP communicates to employees policies and procedures to follow in case of emergency. This written plan should be available, upon request, to employees, their designated representatives, and any OSHA officials who request it.
An emergency action plan (EAP) is a written document required by particular OSHA standards [29 CFR 1910.38(a)]. The purpose of an EAP is to facilitate and organize employer and employee actions during workplace emergencies. Well developed emergency plans 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. A poorly prepared plan, likely will lead to a disorganized evacuation or emergency response, resulting in confusion, injury, and property damage.
The commitment and support of all employees is critical to the plan's success in the event of an emergency; ask for their help in establishing and implementing your emergency action plan. For smaller organizations, the plan does not need to be written and may be communicated orally if there are 10 or fewer employees [29 CFR 1910.38(b)].
At a minimum, the plan must include but is not limited to the following elements [29 CFR 1910.38(c)]: Means of reporting fires and other emergencies [29 CFR 1910.38(c)(1)]. Evacuation procedures and emergency escape route assignments [29 CFR 1910.38(c)(2)]. Procedures to be followed by employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate [29 CFR 1910.38(c)(3)]. Procedures to account for all employees after an emergency evacuation has been completed [29 CFR 1910.38(c)(4)]. Rescue and medical duties for those employees who are to perform them [29 CFR 1910.38(c)(6)].
Emergency Exit Routes Training:
Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. They cause 15% of all accidental deaths, and are second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities. The OSHA standards for walking/working surfaces apply to all permanent places of employment, except where only domestic, mining, or agricultural work is performed.
Hazards and Solutions
There are many situations that may cause slips, trips, and falls, such as ice, wet spots, grease, polished floors, loose flooring or carpeting, uneven walking surfaces, clutter, electrical cords, open desk drawers and filing cabinets, and damaged ladder steps. The controls needed to prevent these hazards are usually obvious, but too often ignored, such as keeping walkways and stairs clear of scrap and debris; coiling up extension cords, lines, and hoses when not in use; keeping electrical and other wires out of the way; wearing lug soles in icy weather; clearing parking lots, stairs, and walkways in snowy weather; and using salt/sand as needed.
Medical and First Aid Training:
Adult CPR / Basic First Aid (OSHA Requirement) This Adult CPR/First-Aid course will provide the knowledge and skills necessary to recognize and provide basic care for bleeding emergencies and to perform CPR. There are no prerequisites for enrolling in the Adult CPR/First-Aid course. Upon successful completion, each participant will receive a certificate for Standard First-Aid valid for three years, and a certificate for Adult CPR valid for two years.

It is a requirement of OSHA that employees be given a safe and healthy workplace that is reasonably free of occupational hazards. However, it is unrealistic to expect accidents not to happen. Therefore, employers are required to provide medical and first aid personnel and supplies commensurate with the hazards of the workplace. The details of a workplace medical and first aid program are dependent on the circumstances of each workplace and employer. The intent of this page is to provide general information that may be of assistance. If additional information is required, an Occupational Health Professional should be contacted.
Updates enforcement procedures for compliance officers who need to conduct inspections of emergency response operations. It defines additional terms and expands on training requirements for emergency responders and other groups such as skilled support personnel. This OSHA instruction revises CPL 02-02-059, issued April 24, 1998.
