Is an overview of OSHA’s regulations on machine guarding. This course discusses different types of machine guards, different actions and motions that require machine guards, how and when machine guards should be implemented, and other safety considerations regarding machine guard use.
Starts with an introduction to aerial lifts and the hazards that can accompany operating them. Then it moves into giving general information on how to inspect and operate them safely, citing OSHA regulations.
Discusses the qualification, responsibilities, and communication requirements of the signal person. It also provides detailed descriptions and illustrations of voice and hand signals necessary for safe crane operations.
Starts by explaining the theory behind why hand tools work and general information on how to use them safely. It then moves into discussing specific tools, their functions, and proper use.
Is a continuation of Part I which explains the theory behind why hand tools work and general information on how to use them safely. It also discusses specific tools, their functions, and proper use.
Starts with a broad view of power tools by explaining the difference between electric and pneumatic tools. It then starts to narrow its focus by teaching about general safety of power tools. Finally, the course discusses specific tools and how to operate them safely.
Identifies the basic hardware used in rigging and identifies the basic maintenance and inspection criteria of rigging hardware. Additionally, it defines chain hoists and come-a-longs. Finally, it covers safe rigging operations and hand signals for crane operation.
Covers the characteristics, advantages, and limitations of the three basic types of slings. Additionally, the learner will discuss the basic principles of using, storing, and maintaining slings.
Covers the two main types of scaffolds, supported and suspension scaffolds, and their major components. It also discusses how to construct scaffolds according to OSHA’s general scaffold specifications, safety factors for scaffold inspection, and important procedures regarding scaffold safety.
Examines types of control valves and their applications, material compatibility and durability of control valves, types of control valve actuators and their applications, and the selection process for various types of actuators.
Examines hydrostatic and pneumatic tests, which are the primary pressure leak test methods. The course also takes a brief look at less common pressure leak test methods.
Discusses process variables, measurement, control loops, and process control in petrochemical facilities. Controllers are discussed at length including the types of control (proportional, integral, and derivative) and tuning. The last topic covers control systems such as, PLCs, DCS, and SCADA.
Covers threaded pipe, its designations, connectors, common tools, quality work practices, and the proper ways to calculate installation.
Explores the differences, types, and correct use of industrial pipe hangers and supports.
Explores the operation, installation, inspection, and maintenance of valves. The course examines nine general types of valves, including: gate, check, ball, plug, globe, needle, diaphragm, butterfly, and relief valves.
Explains the fundamentals of steam trap design and operation, identifies types of steam traps and explains how they operate, and discusses the problems associated with steam trap function.
Explains thermostatic steam traps and lists the different types of thermostatic steam traps and their components, including bellows, dual-range, bimetallic, and liquid expansion traps. This course also explains how each type of trap operates.
Defines a mechanical steam trap and examines its most common types, including float and inverted bucket traps. The operation of these traps and their associated maintenance problems are also discussed.
Explains how thermodynamic disc and piston traps work and how they are maintained, including protection from adverse weather conditions through the use of bonnet covers.
