Course Description: This two day course is a combination of the (905) OSHA 10-Hour Construction Industry Health and Safety training with four hours of training targeted for workers in green industries added to it for a total of 14 hours of class time. This combined course is intended to provide a variety of safety and health training to workers being newly employed in a green industry, such as solar, wind, building weatherization, etc. 

The (905) course emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention. That training is based on various topics in OSHA’s 1926 Construction Industry Regulations. In particular, OSHA requirements address issues such as physical hazards (e.g., fall protection, confined spaces, trenching, use of tools), and chemical exposure hazards. The content of the additional four hours of training presented in this combined course usually are mutually agreed to between TNEC and its client, depending on the specific needs of the latter’s workers. 

Typically, the agreed to topics can provide the worker with an understanding of and the skills necessary to suspect the presence of hazardous materials, including asbestos, lead-based paint and solvents, identify the hazards associated with these materials and notify proper authorities. Special emphasis can be placed on awareness of state and federal regulations relative to working safely around lead based paints and asbestos and at what levels licensed contractors and workers with additional training are required. In this combined course the subjects of fall protection and fall arrest usually are dealt with in more depth than is the case in the basic (905) course. Other topics pertinent to the needs of the client’s workers can be included.

Within these guidelines, TNEC always strives to tailor the mix of topics presented to the needs of the students in attendance. TNEC trainers utilize the Small Group Activity Method (SGAM) of training and have found that the inclusion of NIOSH Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) Reports are beneficial to the delivery of this course, that is, to assist the students in attendance to better understand and retain the content of the training.

This combined course usually is delivered over the course of two (2) x seven-hour class time days, typically from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., with a half-hour break at noon for lunch each day. Alternative schedules are negotiable but must be over a period of two days.
