Why Is the OSHA-10 Training So Important?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was founded in 1971, and during those 48 years, it has helped reduce workplace fatalities by 66%

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was founded in 1971, and during those 48 years, it has helped reduce workplace fatalities by 66%. Because of its training and safety requirements, it has been responsible for saving thousands of lives. 

Since construction workers have a fatality rate that’s larger than other industries, and since many skilled electrical workers end up in the construction industry, OSHA-10 training takes on added significance.

OSHA has identified four hazards in the construction industry that cause almost 80% of the worksite fatalities. They include the following hazards:

  • Falls: The deadliest of the dangers, falls account for 34% of all deaths.
  • Caught in or between: Caught-in or between injuries occur when a worker is squeezed, caught, crushed, compressed, or pinched between parts of an object or several objects.
  • Struck-by: This category includes all fatalities resulting from flying objects and those that move, fall, roll, and then strike a worker.
  • Electrocution:  Training for electrical hazards focuses on de-energizing circuits and then ensuring that no charge remains.

Why choose the OSHA 10 course?

Some business owners and managers initially question the effectiveness of a 10-hour course. Even though it’s short, the OSHA-10 program covers a variety of topics taught by industry experts and customized to fit your employees’ needs.

For example, if you send workers from the electrical industry, the instructors might focus on lockout/tagout training or provide instruction on arc flash prevention. The training has the added benefit of making your workers proactive in asking supervisors about safety practices before performing a hazardous task.

The OSHA 10-hour safety course helps workers identify, avoid, and correct on-the-job hazards. They learn to prevent electrical dangers they might not have known existed. The program is an affordable way toward a company culture of workplace safety.

What are some of the areas the training covers?

Of course, the training covers the four hazards that were touched upon earlier, including fall prevention, electrocution, struck-by, and caught-in, plus personal protective equipment, hazardous materials, electrical and chemical safety, and machine safety.

Because there is a reduction in workplace accidents from the OSHA-10 program, workers, businesses, and taxpayers save money.

The OSHA-10 certification is available through Outsource.

Read what Chris Trevino, the Field Operations Manager for the company, has to say about structured cabling as a viable career option:

The construction industry is always in need of new talent, and this has never been truer than it is today. The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently announced that it expects to add nearly 10 million new jobs to the U.S. economy through the year 2024. Many of those jobs will go to skilled trade technicians in the construction industry, and structured cabling is a great skill to have. As you gain experience and knowledge, you will be given more responsibility on the job and have the opportunity to transition into other areas of structured cable, including A/V and security installation.

How Supervisors Should Be Demonstrating Safety

A safe workplace begins at the top with the supervisor. Without leadership from that crucial role, safety will never be a priority. Supervisors have responsibility for most of what happens daily in the workplace.

A safe workplace begins at the top with the supervisor. Without leadership from that crucial role, safety will never be a priority. Supervisors have responsibility for most of what happens daily in the workplace. However, it’s not just a position that’s charged with handing out work and making sure it’s done correctly.  Supervisors must also be accountable for the safety and health of their workers.

Along with a safe environment, employees must also feel secure reporting unsafe or unhealthful conditions or any hazards they observe to their boss without fear of reprisal.

Here is a list of the essential responsibilities concerning safety and health for all employees that safety-conscious supervisors should be assuming:

Conducting the orientation and training of new hires

Supervisors should be taking the lead in training new employees on how to perform their work safely. They should be familiar with and conduct training on how to use personal protective equipment (PPE) that is required for each task. Whenever there are mandated safety training courses, the supervisor ensures that every worker takes them and that they are documented accurately.

Enforcing safe work procedures

Supervisors demonstrate their commitment to safety by enforcing safe work practices. Without enforcement, safety takes a back seat to production, and it’s just a matter of time until there is an accident. Workers should also be encouraged to identify unsafe or unhealthful workplace conditions.

Correcting any safety hazards  

Whenever there are safety concerns, it’s up to the supervisor to take immediate steps to fix them. If it’s not within the supervisor’s ability to do that, then it’s critical to take temporary precautionary measures. The supervisor has to stay on top of any corrective actions until they are completed satisfactorily.

Training workers to spot and report unsafe conditions

Most near-miss incidents are the result of hazardous workplace conditions. One of the supervisor’s chief responsibilities is to educate and remind employees of what to be looking for and how to correct and report these unsafe conditions.

Investigating accidents in the workplace

Supervisors conduct accident investigations and make sure that all injured employees report to the Occupational Medical Service (OMS) right away. OMS works with Occupational Health and Safety to identify hazardous conditions that lead to injuries. They also document and treat any acute injuries. All facts and opinions about the cause of the accident must be recorded on the Workers Compensation Forms (CA-1 or CA-2), which supervisors must review, sign, and submit within 48 hours.

Promoting a speedy return to work

The longer workers are out from work, the less likely they are to return. Supervisors should be encouraging employees to return to work quickly by offering light-duty work and any other assistance whenever possible.

Four Ladder Safety Practices for Electricians

If you’re considering a career as an electrician, you need to understand that a ladder will be included in many of your workdays. If you’re already in the trade, it’s almost a sure thing that you’ll agree.

If you’re considering a career as an electrician, you need to understand that a ladder will be included in many of your workdays. If you’re already in the trade, it’s almost a sure thing that you’ll agree.

Ladders are as much a part of an electrician as a stethoscope is of a doctor. The difference is that when ladders are misused, it can lead to a fall that may cause a fatality or a serious injury.

Even if you are an experienced ladder user, it can’t hurt to re-visit some of the best practices for using them safely. If you’re just starting your career, take these suggestions seriously and learn how to be safe when you are several or more feet above the ground:

Read the labels and markings on the ladder

Note the ladder’s load rating and don’t exceed it with the weight it will be supporting, which should include any tools or equipment. Inspect the ladder before using it, and take it out of service if it’s damaged. Ensure that the ladder is free of any slippery material on the rungs or steps.

Use ladders and their accessories–ladder levelers, jacks, or hooks–for their designed purposes. Don’t use a step ladder as a single ladder or in a partially closed position. Be sure that all locks on an extension ladder are engaged before you get on it.

Use a ladder on level and stable surfaces only

Unless it has been secured at the top or bottom, use a ladder only on a firm and level surface. Never place a ladder in any area where other work activities could displace it unless it is secured or protected by a barrier to keep traffic away from it.

Never place a ladder on boxes, barrels, or any other unstable base to get additional height. And don’t shift or move a ladder while a person or equipment is on it.

Do not use the top step or rung of a ladder

Stay off the top step or rung of any ladder unless it was designed for that purpose. Always maintain a 3-point contact (two hands and a foot, or two feet and a hand) on the ladder while climbing. Also, keep your body near the middle of the step and face the ladder. 

If you’re using an extension or straight ladder to access an elevated surface, it must extend at least three feet above the point of support. The proper angle for setting up an extension ladder is to place its base a quarter of the working length of the ladder from the wall or vertical surface. Stay off the three top rungs of the ladder.

Watch out for electrical hazards

Check for overhead power lines before setting up a ladder. Never use a metal ladder near power lines or any exposed energized electrical equipment.

Communicating Safety Plan to Employees

Communication is an essential factor in every aspect of your business, especially as it pertains to safety. The best safety plan will not be effective unless every worker knows what it is and understands it.

Communication is an essential factor in every aspect of your business, especially as it pertains to safety. The best safety plan will not be effective unless every worker knows what it is and understands it. Since employee safety is likely to be your top priority for many reasons, it makes sense to communicate your plans and policies to them. Here are some ideas for doing that:

  • Send a newsletter: You can do this in an email or through the regular mail to their home address. You could also save a stamp and include it with their paystub. Whichever you choose, you should probably send it out at least monthly to keep safety fresh in your workers’ minds.
  • Hang posters throughout the work areas: Place safety-awareness signs wherever employees tend to gather: at the timeclock, in their break rooms, near the machinery, and outside restrooms. Videos also make a memorable impression.
  • Conduct training sessions: Giving your people the proper safety training equips them to deal with potential hazards. It sends them a message that your company makes safety a priority. The sooner safety becomes part of your company’s culture, the better it will be at preventing workplace accidents.
  • Hold regular safety meetings: Confine these mandatory meetings to smaller groups and short durations. Be sure to hold them regularly to make sure everyone is on board with the organization’s safety standards.
  • Provide them with the best safety equipment: Cheap hardhats and safety glasses send a message that safety isn’t your top priority. You can emphasize safety by buying quality gear that will be comfortable for your people to wear and will give them maximum protection.
  • Point out individual acts of safety: Take action photos of your workers in the middle of safe acts and use them as a training tool. Include these pictures in emails and newsletters, or post them on the bulletin board for all to see.
  • Include safety in employee reviews: Employees who are working in an unsafe manner should be told about it during their next performance review. Conversely, those workers who are adhering to the safety standards should receive a reward.
  • Conduct routine safety inspections: Supervisors should be always on the lookout for unsafe acts and doing regular safety checks. Every employee must be held accountable for following the safety standards, and those who don’t must be warned first and then sent home if the behavior continues.
  • Safety comment cards: Encourage your employees to report potential safety hazards by providing them with safety comment cards. You could also make the cards available on the company’s Intranet.

These suggestions should help your company establish a consistent safety message and increase safety awareness in your business. These tips are not hard to follow or implement, and putting them in place will result in you having a safer work environment for all your people.
