Bloodborne Pathogens Training
OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) details the employer responsibilities for protecting workers who are occupationally exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), as defined by the Standard. The Standard is designed to protect workers who can reasonably be anticipated to come into contact with blood or OPIM as a result of performing their job tasks. Bloodborne Pathogens training is required at the time of initial assignment to tasks where occupational exposure may take place, and at least annually thereafter.

The Ergonomics of Working from Home
Originally created at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ergonomics of Working from Home course is still relevant today, as many people are still working from home (WFH) instead of going to an office. This course teaches you how to modify your WFH space to make it work well for your body and mind, without making huge investments in furniture and other equipment.
RCRA Training for Life Sciences, VSQGs, CESQGs, and SQGs
The EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulates the management of hazardous waste. In addition, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) enforce their state Hazardous Waste Regulations (HWR) that govern hazardous waste generation, treatment, storage, and disposal. Facility personnel assigned to the management of hazardous waste need to know how to conduct their duties in a manner that ensures compliance with the federal and state rules.
This RCRA Training for Life Sciences course educates generators of hazardous chemical waste and employees signing hazardous waste shipping documents (manifests) how to comply with the requirements for Small Quantity Generator and Very Small Quantity Generators, also known as Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators. Hazardous Waste (RCRA) training is required prior to assignment of duties and at least annually thereafter.

Your place or ours!
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently not offering in-person training onsite at Safety Partners offices.
A one-day class held on-location at Safety Partners specifically designed to provide participants with the tools needed to be able to screen processes for potential reactive chemistry hazards, recognize when reactive chemistry hazards are present and implement appropriate controls to reduce the risk of an incident associated with the hazards. Course instructor Harry J. Elston PhD, CIH, PMP of Midwest Chemical Safety will examine case studies of real-life incidents to enhance understanding of the screening and recognition process.
Training that provides certification for emergency responders as specified in OSHA’s hazardous waste operations and emergency response standard, 29 CFR 1910.120(q). This regulation is designed to help assure worker health and safety while performing work activities associated with hazardous waste, and for those responsible for recognizing and responding to hazardous material spills and releases, regardless of the location of the hazard.
