Inadequate machine guarding is one of the most frequent things cited for noncompliance. In most cases, companies think that they are in compliance- it’s not blatant disregard for the regulation, they just don’t know what they don’t know.

Machine guarding ranks among the Top 10 of OSHA citations issued, possibly because the regulation can be confusing. Don't let confusion get in the way of compliance.

The Guarding Compliance Training course will help you sort it out. Through discussion and activities, our professional facilitator will break down the regulation into terms you can understand.

In just four hours, you'll learn practices and procedures that will keep you in compliance and, best of all, protect your employees.

Fee: $99 ABC NH/VT Members $135 Non ABC NH/VT Members
Fee includes student materials, certificate, continental breakfast, and refreshments.

New ANSI standards become effective in December 2019.

Everyone associated with aerial work platforms will be impacted by the new standards. Owners, operators, occupants, supervisors, dealers, manufacturers, and people who rent aerials will need to make changes in the areas of training, job site safety, and machine selection to accommodate the new standards. There are 3 new ANSI standards that cover machine design, safe use, and training. Machine Design standards.

This class has been developed to include discussions of the equipment itself, such as system of controls, hydraulics, steering mechanisms, seat fall protection and other safety equipment, as well as the environment in which the equipment may be used. Sample inspection checklists will be used. Participants will operate the equipment demonstrating knowledge and skill.

Course Topics:
  • OSHA Regulations and ANSI Standards
  • Equipment Specifications
  • Warnings & Precautions
  • Controls & Instrumentation
  • Capacity & Stability
  • Operating Limitations
  • Load Composition
  • Common Accidents
  • Inspections
  • Pedestrian Traffic
  • Hazards & Classifications
Operators of powered industrial forklifts and aerial access equipment must be fully trained and employer certified. Employers need an effective and comprehensive training program to meet this OSHA regulation. Participants will complete formal classroom training, practical hands-on training and an evaluation. This course is designed to meet the training requirements in the OSHA standards for this subject, although site-specific information may be added so that the unique concerns of each jobsite are covered as well. Each attendee will receive a wallet card demonstrating their successful completion.

Many companies are under the false impression that completion of a 10-Hour OSHA Outreach class satisfies OSHA’s training requirements in full … ... it does not.

Instructor:
Dennis Richardson, Trainer W.D. Matthews. Dennis has 20 years experience in forklift and aerial lift training through out New England. He is certified by Clark, Toyota, JLG, Genie and is an authorized OSHA 10 and 30 hr outreach instructor.
