QFAS offers a variety of safety training courses, including:
Forklift or Scissorlift Training – 2 to 3 Hours
3 Year Certification
Forklift accidents can cost your company thousands of dollars in damaged products, wrecked equipment, and injured workers. OSHA requires training and evaluation of all operators on the safe and proper use of forklifts. This program blends classroom and hands-on training, incorporating discussions, videos, instructor demonstrations, a written test and driving evaluation.
Hazard Communication (GHS) – 1½ to 2 Hours
OSHA has aligned its required Hazard Communication Standard with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) to create a universally understandable method for communicating hazard warnings. This training program helps you get up to speed on GHS and OSHA’s requirements, and covers SDS (Safety Data Sheets), components, detailed explanations of the nine pictograms required for use, as well as the new label formats.
Respiratory Fit Test
Respiratory Protection Training with Fit Testing – 1½ to 2 Hours
OSHA’s respiratory protection standard (29 CFR 1910.1340 ) requires each person wearing a respirator to complete training before wearing the respirator and then annually thereafter. When implemented correctly, a respirator fit testing service program can help ensure that the highest respiratory protection levels are achieved through a properly sized and donned respirator.
Pre-requisite: Medical clearances/clean shaven
Lockout/Tagout – 1 to 1½ Hours
OSHA’s lockout/tagout standard covers the servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment in which the unexpected energization or startup of the machines or equipment or release of stored energy could cause injury to employees. This course addresses practices and procedures that are necessary to disable machinery or equipment and to prevent the release of potentially hazardous energy while maintenance and servicing activities are being performed.
Fire Extinguisher Training
Fire prevention is always the best safety policy to follow but prevention is not always possible. This program teaches your employees how to calmly and effectively deal with fires and correctly use a fire extinguisher. Training will consist of hands-on fire extinguisher skills practice.
