What Can You Expect to Learn From Our Trainings?
We bridge the gap between the classroom and the hands-on experiences needed to train your workers in the up-to-date standards set forth by OSHA and other regulatory agencies. We will help you create a safety culture whether it's for construction safety or general industry.
Eagle Wings offers an array of different training courses; including our most popular "Competent Person". An OSHA "Competent Person" is defined as "one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them" [29 CFR 1926.32(f)]. By way of training and/or experience, a competent person is knowledgeable of applicable standards, is capable of identifying workplace hazards relating to the specific operation, and has the authority to correct them. Some standards add additional specific requirements which must be met by the competent person.
EWC teaches: Fall Protection must be provided for each employee on a walking/working surface with an unprotected side or edge at the height required by the OSHA standard applicable to their workplace. Various OSHA standards include specific provisions covering Fall Protection and/or personal fall arrest systems (PFASs) and falling object protection. We teach calculating fall distances and methods of Fall Protection.
EWC teaches: Confined Space Entry Training is defined under the OSHA Confined Space standard 29 CFR 1910.146. The term “permit-required confined space” (permit space) is used to describe confined spaces that have one or more of the following characteristics or hazards: • Contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere • Contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant • Has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant • Contains any other recognized safety or health hazards, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
Excavation + Trenching
EWC teaches: Trenching & Excavation for the Competent Person course goes beyond the basic awareness level of introductory courses and into the details necessary to create a safe environment for workers, as outlined in OSHA's standard. It helps a Competent Person answer important job site questions, such as; "Are there adequate means of access and exiting?" "Are adjacent structures securely shored?" "Does the procedure require benching or multiple benching, shoring and shielding?" "Are means of egress from the cut, cavity, or depression?" "Are their access and exiting rescue ladders place every 25 ft?" (29 CFR 1926.650)
OSHA 30 & 10 Hour
Here you can learn the basics about what topics fall under OSHA’s umbrella, how OSHA operates to protect both workers and employers, and how you personally can benefit from knowing OSHA’s standards.
EWC teaches: With so many Forklift operators in the work force today, it helps to have the most up-to-date, OSHA approved Forklift training for your company. For standard Forklifts, we offer classes 1, 4, 5 and 7. For warehouse style, we offer classes 2 and 3 which can be easily added to the Forklift training day. Powered industrial trucks regulations 1910.178 and General Safety orders 3650 are the groundwork for a successful operator.
Class 1: Electric Motor Rider Trucks
Class 2: Electric Motor Narrow Aisle Trucks
Class 3: Electric Motor Hand or Hand/Rider Trucks
Class 4: Internal Combustion Engine Trucks – Cushion (Solid) Tires
Class 5: Internal Combustion Engine Trucks – Pneumatic Tires
Class 7: Electric and Internal Combustion Engine Tractors
MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platform)
EWC teaches: This course instructs operators to prepare and safely operate various types of MEWP's, also referred to as Cherry Pickers, Aerial Lifts or Scissor Lifts. Categories include Static Vertical (1a), Static Boom (1b), Mobile Vertical (3a), Mobile Boom (3b). At the end of this course the student will receive a license and be able to familiarize themselves with the many different types of MEWP's on the job. ANSI 92.2,92.5, 92.6, Cal Osha 3648 ,29CFR 1926.453 are the foundational rules and best practices for operators.
EWC teaches: That training shall include the following areas, as applicable; the nature of any electrical hazards, fall hazards and falling object hazards in the work area. The correct procedures for erecting, disassembling, moving, operating, repairing, inspecting, and maintaining the type of Scaffold in question. The design criteria, maximum intended load-carrying capacity and intended use of the scaffold. The nature of controlling falling objects and of workers when working at heights above 6 feet hazards.
EWC teaches: Heat-related illness can be prevented by water, rest and shade. This will mean the difference between life and death. In addition, building tolerance to working in the heat (acclimatization) is essential to prevent heat-related illnesses and deaths especially for new workers or those who have been away for a week or more, but for all workers during a heat wave. This means employers must provide time for workers to adjust to the heat; gradually increasing the workload and providing appropriate water, rest and shade.
General Safety & Health
EWC teaches: The basic requirements of a safety and health program. These requirements in sections 20 and 21 are referenced throughout the construction standards. Standards such as the one in 1926.20(b)(2) "...frequent and regular inspections of the job sites...by competent persons..." are referenced in several subparts including Subpart P, Excavations, and Subpart X, Stairways and Ladders. Subpart C also contains the definitions for several terms used in the construction standards. The definitions for terms such as Competent Person, qualified, approved and suitable are located in section 32. Other general requirements covering topics such as first aid, fire protection, housekeeping at the site. Illumination, sanitation, and personal protective equipment are also found in subpart C in sections 22 through 28.
