2 Accident and Incident Investigations Sat, 05 October 2019 Sat, 05 October 2019 1250 TTD Per Seat

Investment: $1,250.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: OSHA strongly encourages employers to investigate all incidents in which a worker was hurt, as well as close calls, in which a worker might have been hurt if the circumstances had been slightly different.

In the past, the term "accident" was often used when referring to an unplanned, unwanted event. To many, "accident" suggests an event that was random, and could not have been prevented. Since nearly all worksite fatalities, injuries, and illnesses are preventable, OSHA suggests using the term "incident" investigation.

Investigating a work site incident— a fatality, injury, illness, or close call— provides employers and workers the opportunity to identify hazards in their operations and shortcomings in their safety and health programs. Most importantly, it enables employers and workers to identify and implement the corrective actions necessary to prevent future incidents.

Key Training Areas include:

  • Principles of accident and incident investigation
  • Benefits of accident/incident prevention
  • Basic concepts of human factors
  • Accident /incident reporting and scope of investigation
  • Accident investigation techniques
  • Stages of accident investigation

Certificate  Awarded.

Training by experienced and qualified occupational health and safety professional.

4 Fire Warden Training Wed, 04 December 2019 Wed, 04 December 2019 850 TTD Per Seat

  Investment: $850.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: In Trinidad and Tobago, there is the culture of unpreparedness. Now is the time to fix this. Fires occur in any place and time. Not only are fires restricted to restaurants and the oil and gas sectors, but all types of organizations are at high risk of fires.

Organizations should not be left unprotected in terms of what they can do to prevent as well as respond to fires. Many times, it is too late when the fire service arrives to extinguish an ongoing fire. It is the critical small steps that each organization can do that can eventually save the day.

A simple strategy to adopt is to train fire wardens in every organization. If an organization is large, it is recommended that persons in various departments be trained. If an organization occupies more than floor in a building, then persons in every floor should be trained. This is a preventative strategy that can save your organization in the long term.

In this 6-hour Fire Warden Training, participants are introduced to the critical aspects in the identification and control of fire risks. Further, they will be able to understand basic fire hazards and their consequential risks in the workplace. Next to be tackled are the main measures that can be taken to minimize such fire risks. And, emergency response protocols are also fully covered in this training.

6 Sick Building Syndrome Sat, 28 September 2019 Sat, 28 September 2019 1250 TTD Per Seat

INVESTMENT: $1,250

 

SICK BUILDING SYNDROME

‘Sick Building Syndrome’, as the name implies, can be defined as a situation whereby the occupants of a building experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building - a condition affecting office staff, typically marked by headaches and respiratory problems, attributed to unhealthy or stressful factors in the working environment including poor ventilation.

This issue may need to be addressed due to high absenteeism, lack of employee morale and lower productivity. While many employees have complained about these effects and employers have grappled with ways to treat with this issue, there is still no definitive proof that this illness is real. In an effort to ensure that productivity levels remain high, employers should invest in finding out the causes of these issues.
