New Funding, New Website - SBCTC Safety and Health Training Program Moves Forward

October 3, 2013 - OSHA has approved the third year of our SBCTC Health and Safety program.  This means we will continue to support affiliates, apprenticeship programs and contractors by offering training and resources on a variety of safety and health issues impacting our workers, and expand our training repertoire in 2014.

Currently we offer Hazard Awareness Seminars at no cost on the following topics:

• Focus Four Hazards—Falls, Electrocutions, Struck-By, Caught-In/Between

• Sprains, Strains and Repetitive Motion Injuries

• Fall Prevention and Rescue Planning

In spring, 2014, we will add “Occupational Health Hazards of Construction Dust, Fumes and Vapors” to our training repertoire. We’re excited to tackle this important topic that will include discussion of:  silica; isocyanates and other chemicals; new hazard communication requirements; control strategies and PPE.  We will offer train-the-trainer and hazard awareness classes across the state.

For more information about scheduling a seminar, contact Laura Boatman, Program Coordinator at 916-443-3302 x-133 or [email protected].

 

New Website Launched — http://safety.sbctc.org

Check out our new online Safety and Health HUB at safety.sbctc.org.  This SBCTC resource is designed to help you follow what’s new in the world of construction safety and health, including training, materials and resources, news feeds, links to our favorite safety websites, photos, and more. 

What you’ll see is just the beginning as we continue to build our HUB into your “go to” place for construction safety.  In this new, vibrant format you can navigate using the category bar or simply scroll the home page.  We eventually want to make this site a place where trainers can connect and share ideas. 

Tell us what you’d like to see when you visit the site.  What are your “hot safety topics” of the day?   Email Laura Boatman at [email protected]
