OSHA Targeting Training: Warehouse Worker Hazards in Fabrication Facilities and Service Centers

Handling long, heavy pieces of steel makes structural steel fabricators different from other industries. The safety seminars are designed to provide people who are responsible for safety in member fabrication companies with training tools they can use to improve their safety records and meet OSHA training requirements. This "train the trainer" program is focused on worker hazards in fabrication facilities and service centers. the training will cover hazard recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention in key areas:

  • prevention of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD)
  • material handling (forklifts, overhead cranes, loaders)
  • lockout/tag-out procedures
  • respiratory protection
  • electrical safety
  • hazard communication, including GHS

You will learn how to reduce the risks of workers performing tasks within fabrication facilities, steel service centers and other related firms. The program is targeted to safety trainers in steel fabrication facilities and steel service centers including safety directors, operations managers, supervisors and foremen, but anyone is welcome to attend.

As an AISC member, you can attend this valuable training for FREE! The number of attendees is limited to 30 per workshop, so hurry and register today!

Lunch is provided. Attendees will receive six contact hours.
