Safety Training

Our areas of specialty:

Confined Space TrainingEveryone who has responsibilities under your permit-required confined space program must be trained. Levels of confined space training include:

Entrant/Attendant: This class usually requires four hours and ensures that those who make an entry or monitor (attend to) the entrants can fulfill all responsibilities.

Entry Supervisor: The Confined Space Entry Supervisor is responsible for ensuring the entry permit is completed and he/she ensures the space is safe to enter. Before taking this four-hour class, Entry Supervisors should have completed Entrant/Attendant training.

Train-the-Trainer: Every location that has permit-required confined spaces must have someone with the skills and knowledge to administer the program. This includes maintaining all documentation, identifying permit-required confined spaces, ensuring all hazards are identified, and all affected employees are properly trained. This two-day class is designed to achieve these objectives.

Fall Protection Training - If workers are exposed to falls, they must be properly trained and equipped. They type of training they need is determined by the types of fall protection systems in use. We offer two levels of fall protection training.

User: This class focuses on the learning needs of those who use fall protection systems such as fall restraint, positioning, or personal fall arrest systems. The need to understand how to select, inspect, doff/don, and properly use the specific types of systems in use. This class generally requires 6-8 hours depending on the pre-existing skills of the students.

Competent Person: Every location that uses fall protection systems must have a designated competent person who is trained to identify hazards, develop a fall protection plan, and ensure that workers are complying with the plan. They may also be required to train users. This class is intended to address those needs.

Forklift Safety - Forklift accidents account for many millions of dollars of loss each year and our classes can help you avoid these costs. We provide the following types of training:

Operator Certification: Operators must be re-certified every three years which means that they must demonstrate their skills. A best practice when conducting this re-certification is to provide the operators with three to four hours of refresher training.

Train the Trainer: Many locations prefer to train and certify forklift operators in-house. This class provides your experienced forklift operators with the skills and knowledge they need.

Excavation Safety Competent Person Training - If your crews make a cut, cavity, or depression in the ground (regardless of depth), there must be a competent person assigned to the project. This person assigned as the competent person must be capable to recognizing hazards and taking corrective action. This class provides the competent person with the skills and knowledge needed to ensure that the excavation standards are being followed and workers are being protected.

Rope Access Training - This course provides students with the essential skills needed to operate in the vertical environment. The program reflects a variety of rope access and technical rope use standards including those promulgated by private certifying agencies, ANSI, ISO, and NFPA. The focus of the training is to ensure that all rope access team roles (worker, attendant, and supervisor/technician) are fulfilled in accordance with the standards and company policies.

Supported Scaffold Training - Supported scaffolds are defined as those that are built up from the ground, compared to suspended scaffolds that hang off a structure.  Similar to excavations, every supported scaffold must have a competent assigned who can ensure the scaffold is fit for use and the users are complying with all requirements.

Our Approach to Safety Training

When workers are assigned tasks in high-hazard environments, employers are obligated to provide them with the equipment and procedures needed to ensure safety. Central to this effort is training the workers to use the equipment as designed and follow the procedures.

All effective safety training initiatives share the same characteristics. These classes must be:

Designed to meet the needs of adult learners.

Developed by following proven instructional design techniques.

Delivered by instructors who understand the challenges of the industrial environment the students work within.

Students must also have ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss challenges that are unique to their work situation(s).

At D2000 Safety we have elected to focus on these specific areas of industrial safety training:

Although we provide training for users and other affected employees, most of our classes are targeted towards advanced learners such as supervisors, safety managers, production leads, and others with worker oversight responsibilities. Often these students also have the responsibility of establishing and implementing their location's policies, OSHA guidelines, and ensuring compliance.

To support the students in these efforts, our classes usually include resources to help students communicate what they've learned once they've returned to their work environment. This can include leader guides, PowerPoint presentations, checklists, and other important resources that help spread safety expertise throughout the organization.

Although any of these classes can be taught at your location. Give us a call to discuss what you may need or simply get a quick quote.
