Numerous safety hazards have been identified for workers in the On-Site Industry and have become well documented for OSS Installers. Specialty contractors and small business workers are often unnecessarily exposed to hazards and potential fatalities while performing their daily duties. These potential hazards come from tasks such as, trenching and excavation, confined space entries, exposure to the OSHA Focus 4 hazards and potential illness through contact with infectious diseases, unique to the on-site wastewater industry.
This training is a strategic effort to reduce injuries and fatalities and raise awareness to workplace hazards and injuries related to minimum requirements. This training will discuss applicable rules, compliance, program development to mitigate exposures in existing small business and review workplace assessment tools that can be utilized in all OSS industry segments.
1. Recognize how trenching and excavation, confined space entries, exposure to the OSHA Focus 4 hazards and potential illness through contact with infectious diseases can cause safety and health exposures in the workplace
2. Identify potential safety hazards workers may be exposed to while on the jobsite
3. Discuss possible methods to mitigate safety hazards while performing work
4. Discuss tools employers and employees can use to help keep them safe while working, including both personal protective equipment and administrative controls
