Associated Builders and Contractors - NH/VT - Event Information

Event Name:Machine Guarding
Description: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.
