OSHA Teleconference
Friday, October 13, 2017, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
Category: Events

The purpose of this session is to assist the funeral home owner in providing the mandated annual OSHA training to their professional staff as required under 29 CFR 1910.1030 Bloodborne Pathogens and 29 CFR 1910.1048 Formaldehyde.
It is designed specifically for employees. It is not meant to be a compliance seminar for owners. It is assumed that the employer is already making a good-faith effort at OSHA compliance and is using this teleconference as a part of their ongoing compliance efforts.
Further, it is assumed that all employees have already received training in these areas as required by law. Both regulations require initial training and annual training thereafter. Therefore, for almost all employees, this should simply be a review and updating session rather than a comprehensive educational seminar.
The regulations contain certain requirements that cannot be met through a teleconference. They are site-specific requirements that must be accomplished by the employer. It is the employer’s responsibility to supplement this session with the following training:
  • Provide employee with a copy and explanation of the employer’s actual site-specific Exposure Control Plan.
  • The employer’s basis for selecting personal protective equipment (PPE) along with specific instructions on the use and disposal of PPE.
  • Procedures to be followed and who to notify in the event of an exposure incident and a review of emergency procedures.
  • The location and availability of compliance and training materials.
Finally, General Workplace Safety regulations also contain certain training requirements especially for new employees. Since this regulation does not contain specific annual training requirements, it will be mentioned, but not thoroughly covered in this session. It is the employer’s responsibility to train all employees in the hazards of the workplace.
The Hazard Communication Standard has phased in new requirements to comply with the Global Harmonized System, including new training requirements (2013) new SDS sheets, and new labeling (2015) which will be covered in this course.
