OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety Training on June 4-5, 2016
Northern Nevada Literacy Council held an OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety Training on June 4-5, 2016. The 18 participants, 15 of whom were NNLC students, learned basic safety knowledge needed to create an accident-free work environment at a construction site.
Instructor Adalberto “Beto” Rosas, of BST-Bilingual Safety Training, shared his expertise with the participants on topics such as OSHA’s history, mission, goals, standards and inspection procedures. Other topics included health hazards, tools, equipment/machine safety, chemical hazards, personal protective equipment, and the four main causes of construction deaths (“the Fatal 4”).
“It is wonderful to have so many workers who care about their safety and health,” Rosales said. “No one should ever have to sacrifice their health, body or life just to earn a living.”
Participants who completed both days of training earned their official OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety Card. They include: Daniel Chavez, Daniel Reyes, Emilia Sotelo, Franklin Cespedes Sanchez, Gabriela Hill, Gilberto Guzman, Jose de Nazaret Muñoz Gtz., Juan Pablo Guzman, Kimberly Vazquez, Martin Guerrero, Patricia Natale, Perla Robles, Rafael Nieves, Reina Montalvo, Xian Zhao, Rene Delgado, Joe Chafin and Billy Drake.
NNLC Executive Director Susan Robinson looks forward to offering this OSHA Construction Training in the future. “We are so proud of our students who spent their weekend getting their OSHA 10 certifications,” said NNLC Executive Director Susan Robinson. “They are great additions to the workforce. Congratulations!”
