Modesto Junior College’s Workforce Development and Community Education have teamed-up to offer two new Cal-OSHA training courses in May to assist area employers in understanding and applying OSHA standards.

In the 32-hour Cal-OSHA Training, general industry managers and supervisors will gain an understanding of Cal-OSHA standards and regulations in order to effectively develop and implement an on-going safety and health program for their company.  Participants will learn how to use Cal-OSHA regulations to recognize and reduce hazards in the workplace; assess the effectiveness of the safety and health program at their place of employment; develop and evaluate internal training programs required by Cal-OSHA regulations, and utilize safety and health resources to promote a continuous process improvement in their safety and health program.

The HAZWOPER training is designed for hazardous waste operations and emergency response workers who must satisfy their annual eight-hour refresher training course requirement. Topics include detecting hazardous materials, toxicology, respirators, site safety planning, decontamination, hazardous communication, hazardous waste and levels of protection (PPE).

The Cal-OSHA Training for Manufacturing Supervisors and Managers is a 32-hour OSHA certified course provided through Friday-Saturday sessions on May 9-10, and May 16-17, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The registration cost is $479. A Hazardous Waste Operations Refresher Course is an eight-hour OSHA certified training held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 23.  The registration fee is $189. Both courses will be held in the Regional Fire Training Center, located at 220 Fire Science Lane in Modesto.
