Today we use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) so routinely we may take it for granted. From gloves, to gowns, to masks, and face shields, they're all an integral part of the care that we give to our clients. And although we use PPE so frequently today, the evolution on PPE is actually quite hard earned and even involves a love story!

Benzene is a volatile chemical formed from both natural processes and human activities. Natural sources of benzene include emissions from volcanoes and forest fires. Benzene is also a natural part of crude oil, gasoline, and cigarette smoke. Benzene is widely used in the United States, ranking in the top 20 chemicals for production volume. It is primarily used as a solvent, as a starting material for the production of other chemicals, and as a gasoline additive. Breathing benzene can cause drowsiness, dizziness, and unconsciousness; long-term benzene exposure causes effects on the bone marrow and can cause anemia and leukemia. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recognizes benzene as a hazardous material and imposes strict exposure limits in the workplace. This course presents an overview of benzene and its health risks, and provides information on the occupational requirements and methods to protect against exposure to benzene. It was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.

This course will provide you with a basic understanding of bloodborne pathogens, common modes of transmission, methods of prevention, and what to do if an exposure occurs. Information presented will help minimize serious health risks to persons who may have personal exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials in the workplace. This course has been updated to reflect new legislation for needlesticks in OSHA regulations for Bloodborne Pathogens that went into effect on April 18, 2001. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. The training requirements established under the Bloodborne Pathogen standard require an employer to allow for an opportunity for interactive questions and answers with the person conducting the training session. Employers may use a variety of methods to meet the intent of the standard. As an example, OSHA has previously stated that an employer can meet OSHA's requirement for trainees to have direct access to a qualified trainer by providing a telephone hotline. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology. Learner objectives for this course are to: identify bloodborne pathogens and symptoms of bloodborne diseases, identify modes of transition of bloodborne pathogens, recognize the proper use and handling of personal protective equipment, identify measures to be taken when the skin or eyes are exposed to infectious material, and specify the components of an Exposure Control Plan.

Chlorine is one of the 90 elements essential to daily life, along with oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. Chlorine is used in many processes, including electronics, water purification, synthetics, and medicines. Around 12 million tons of chlorine are produced for such purposes in North America alone. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recognizes chlorine as a hazardous material and imposes strict exposure limits in the workplace. This course presents an overview of chlorine, its health risks, how to control and respond to chlorine exposure, and how to protect your workforce from potential harm.

Cryogenic materials are commonly used in the workplace for a variety of purposes, such as refrigeration, medical applications, and rocket propulsion. Due to their extremely cold temperatures, cryogenic materials can be hazardous if handled and stored incorrectly. Any employees handling cryogenic materials must wear personal protective equipment. If employees are exposed to the extreme cold of cryogenic materials they should receive treatment immediately to prevent permanent injury. In the event that an individual inhales cryogenic materials, he should seek immediate attention to prevent serious injury or death. Cryogenic materials are stored in specially designed containers known as dewars. This course explains how to recognize different types of cryogenic materials in the workplace and identifies the potential dangers of storing and handling these material incorrectly. It identifies recommended equipment and the standard operating procedures for handling and storing cryogenic materials safely. It also describes the most effective course of action if accidents involving cryogenic materials occur, including recommended methods for treating employees injured by cryogenic materials.

When people think of defensive driving, they think of "watching out for the other guy" or defending themselves from other drivers so they won't become involved in an accident. That's definitely important, but defensive driving involves more than just that. Defensive driving is as much about what you do and what kind of driver you are, as what someone else does. It's about being a safe driver, driving a safe vehicle, knowing how to drive your particular vehicle, taking responsibility to drive carefully in hazardous conditions, and knowing when to take yourself off the road. It's about arming yourself with all the knowledge you can before you turn the key and head for the roadways. This course is designed to give drivers of commercial vehicles a well-rounded look at the key concepts associated with defensive driving and provide tips and guidelines to prepare drivers for the everyday challenges on the road.

Drug and alcohol abuse by employees is a common cause of workplace problems, such as accidents and ineffective work practices, in the US today. These problems can affect profits and expose companies to increased medical and insurance costs, and any related financial loss due to compensation. Several US laws have been enacted to combat drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace. The Department of Transportation (DOT) interprets these laws and provides employers who are responsible for transportation employees with guidelines for setting up effective drug-free programs. These guidelines encourage employees and supervisors in the transportation industry to be vigilant of any coworkers who may display symptoms of substance abuse and provide details for effective drug and alcohol testing procedures. This course identifies the causes, indicators, and resultant problems of substance abuse and substance dependency in the US transportation industry. It describes the US laws that relate to drug and alcohol testing of transportation employees and outlines DOT regulations that enforce compliance among transportation employers.

According to the US Department of Transportation (DOT), over 800,000 shipments of hazardous materials are transported in the United States every day. The materials shipped include those of chemical, petroleum, radioactive, explosive, and poisonous natures. Of the 800,000 shipments, almost 769,000 are transported by truck on the nation's roads, with the rest divided among rail, pipeline, water, and air. These hazardous materials – or "hazmats" – are classified by the DOT according to the type of hazard they present and must be transported under the proper regulations set out by the DOT. This course examines the DOT's security requirements relative to the shipment and transportation of hazardous materials. In addition, it explains the hazard classes and provides examples of the placards used when transporting hazardous materials. The course also outlines the basic elements of a security plan, defines the employers who require a plan, and explains the training required for employees of companies with plans in place.
