OSHA 30 Weatherization (for Agency-Associated Contractors & Crews)
4 Days (30 Hours) - OSHA requirements do not allow for more than 7.5 hours of training to be delivered in any one day. Given this, the OSHA 30 class requires 4 days of 7.5 hour/day of training. Each day will start at 8:30 a.m., and be completed by 4:30 p.m.
BPI CEUs: 15
Instructor: Bill Manning of Trefoil Home Enterprises
Background: Weatherization Program Notice 11-6 has a new requirement for worker safety training. All weatherization workers are required to take the OSHA 10 hour training, and all weatherization crew leaders are required to take the OSHA 30 hour training course. Crew leads do not need to take to OSHA 10 hour course. The Building Performance Center is accredited to deliver both of these trainings. Both courses will be designed with Weatherization Programs in mind, and will focus on workplace safety as it relates to the typical work practices performed by weatherization workers.
Course content will include 15 hours of OSHA-mandated material: 2 hours Introduction to OSHA, 2 Hours Managing Safety and Health, 6 hours on the OSHA Focus Four Hazards (see description above), 2 hours on Personal Protective and Lifesaving Equipment, 2 hours of Health Hazards in Construction and 1 hour of Stairways and Ladders. 12 hours will be spent on Confined Space Entry, Fire Protection and Prevention, Materials Handling, Storage, Use and Disposal, Motor Vehicle Safety, Safety and Health Programs, Hand and Power Tools and Scaffolding. The final 3 hours will include Washington State’s heat stress rules, a special focus on polyurethane spray foam, vermin, pests and rodents, and record keeping requirements.
Throughout each session, an emphasis will be placed on the types of records that need to be completed and maintained, using appropriate samples for each activity requiring records.
After successful completion of the OSHA 30 course, OSHA will issue a course completion card.
