Reduce the business risks and costs of potential OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) violations. If you don’t stay compliant, you could be faced with hefty fines and damaging publicity. Depending on your industry especially in the technology and scientific sectors, you will need to review the complete lists of basic and specialized OSHA and Cal/OSHA standards that you must meet.

California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 8, Section 6151
What it is: Employee training is required for using a fire extinguisher, and should be provided when first employed, when assigned to an emergency response team, and at least annually thereafter.
What we do: We’ll cover the general principles of using a fire extinguisher and the hazards involved with the beginning stages of fire fighting. Training includes reporting fires, evaluating fire size, using the provided extinguishers, and maintaining an exit route. If allowed by the local city jurisdiction, we provide live fire training — something you won’t find with our competitors
California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 8, Section 5193
What it is: The Bloodborne Pathogens standard applies whenever employees have occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) as a result of their job.
What we do: We conduct annual training to meet the standards, which includes emergency response team members trained in CPR and First Aid.
What it is: Preventing a back injury is much easier than repairing one. Because your back is critically important to your ability to walk, sit, stand, and run, it's important to nip back problems in the bud.
What we do: We encourage Back Safety training in conjunction with all courses requiring patient lifts, carries or drags. Because most back pain arises from using your back improperly, we teach a few basic rules about safe patient lifts, carries, drags and extrication device usage to help prevent possible injury to the rescuer.
CONFINED SPACES AWARENESS AND RESCUE
California Code of Regulations (CCR) Article 108, sections 5156 through 5158
What we do: Our Confined Space Awareness training provides the knowledge necessary to perform routine confined space operations such as cleaning, inspection and repair. Confined Space Rescue training is designed to provide the skills necessary to perform rescue or recovery from a confined space.
OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.38
What it is: Employers are required to implement and conduct annual drills to ensure the safe and orderly evacuation of employees during a fire, disaster, or any other workplace emergency.
What we do: We provide preplanning, organization, supervision, annual drills, and post-drill evaluations to help eliminate mistakes and misunderstandings that are critical to the safe evacuation of all occupants in an emergency.
FLOOR WARDEN/FLOOR SWEEPER TRAINING
What it is: Floor wardens are on the front lines of emergency response when an alarm occurs. Their quick actions, clear thinking and calm leadership are vital to ensuring the safety of building occupants during an emergency evacuation.
What we do: Encouraging the use of floor wardens/sweepers for all buildings regardless of number of floors, we train floor wardens/sweepers to facilitate the evacuation of occupants from the floor during a fire alarm.
SPECIAL EVENT MEDICAL STANDBY AND SAFETY ASSESSMENTS
What it is: Many companies feel at ease when they are prepared for emergencies at important events.
What we do: We provide Basic Life Support (BLS) at events such as sports, conferences, exhibitions, seminars that gives participants access to our emergency response services.
Our highly trained paramedic and emergency medical technicians will be the first link in response in an emergency. Before the event, our staff can also evaluate the event setup addressing potential hazardous situations before the event
What it is: Your employees need to be prepared in the event of a hazardous materials release. Businesses with hazardous materials on-site have a responsibility to teach employees how to protect themselves and if required, stabilize the incident.
We offer: Cal/OSHA requires annual refresher training for all Hazardous Materials courses after initial training, which we provide. Our instruction, taught by certified Hazardous Materials Instructors through the California Specialized Training Institute, includes the following levels:
- Hazardous Communications (HAZCOM). Employees who may be exposed to hazardous chemicals in the workplace have a right to know about those hazards and how to protect themselves. For this reason, the HCS is sometimes referred to as the Worker Right-to-Know Legislation, or more often just as the Right-to-Know law. Originally, HCS applied only to the manufacturing industry. However, subsequent court challenges have modified the scope of the law so that today the HCS applies to nearly all sectors of the work force.
What requirements does it meet? This course meets the requirements of the OSHA Hazardous Communications Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200 and where required, CAL OSHA CCR Title 8, Section 5194.
- First Responder Awareness (FRA). Awareness level responders are often first on the scene at a hazardous materials incident. Their role is to protect life and property and minimize environmental impact. Businesses with hazardous materials on-site benefit from trained emergency response teams who understand the fundamental characteristics of these hazardous materials, know the steps to safely isolate them, and properly notify the appropriate people to keep the work environment and employees safe.
- First Responder Operations (FRO): If your business involves responding to chemical emergencies at your site, someone else’s site or while in transit, this course is for you. We give instruction to business emergency response teams, chemical transport drivers and others who respond to hazardous materials incidents in the workplace.
