Presented by Dennis Rushing, ALCM, OHST, AIM, CET, CHSP – Senior Risk & Safety Consultant

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Columbus Convention Center 901 Avenida De Mesilla Las Cruces, NM

Basic Body Mechanics for Caregivers is a workshop designed for trainers and employees alike.  It takes a different approach to preventing back injuries by helping caregivers understand how their back works.  We will look at joints in the body, how they get injured and then how to keep them from being injured.  Leverage in the body will be studied to help us learn how to use the levers in the body correctly and how that leverage can also cause injury. Finally, we will see how to properly lift to prevent the back from being injured while lifting.  This will be a fast moving and informative one hour workshop.

GHS Hazard Communication Training

Presented by Mary H. Lovato, CSHO – Risk and Safety Consultant

Thursday, October 16, 2014 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Heritage Hotels & Resorts – Santa Fe
Place: Boardroom
309 W. San Francisco
Santa Fe, NM 87501

This training will provide employers assistance in meeting the June 1, 2016 OSHA GHS Hazard Communication deadline as well as offer employers with the tools and resources they need to implement these changes and pass on the knowledge downstream.

The OSHA GHS rule, which took effect on May 25, 2012, is not a new standard but provides changes to the existing Hazard Communication Standard. OSHA provides a transition period for employers to comply with the new GHS HazCom Standard. The December 1, 2013 deadline has passed and now it is time to prepare for the June 1, 2016 deadline. The training will focus on workplace labeling, safety data sheets, the hazard communication program and employee training on the newly identified physical or health hazards. 

Who does GHS Affect? GHS affects companies that manufacture or import hazardous chemicals; and downstream employers that acquire these chemicals from an outside supplier (as opposed to manufacturing or importing it themselves).
