The New England Consortium, based at UMass Lowell, is offering a no-cost 30-hour OSHA General Industry Safety Training course online (via Zoom) to companies and individuals currently in – or who are looking to enter – the supply chain for the Offshore Wind Energy Industry!

The OSHA 30-hour General Industry course is essential for those who are working, or aspiring to work, as forepersons, engineers, field supervisors, site leads, project managers, and safety specialists. The course is best suited for workers and supervisors who have safety responsibilities in the workplace. The training emphasizes hazard control, prevention, avoidance, and identification, as well as OSHA standards, skills that are widely applicable throughout general industry and construction work settings. This OSHA-30 course provides essential information that helps safety committee members, forepersons, supervisors, superintendents, managers, competent persons, safety staff, safety managers, and others monitor workplace safety and implement OSHA health and safety regulations that apply to their workplaces. 

The course curriculum includes:

  • Introduction to OSHA
  • Managing health and safety,
  • Fall protection
  • Emergency action plan
  • Electrical safety
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Materials handling
  • Hazard communication
  • Confined space
  • Lockout/tagout
  • Machine guarding
  • Welding and cutting
  • Hazardous materials
  • Bloodborne pathogens
  • Ergonomics
  • OSHA recordkeeping
  • Process safety management
  • Health and safety programs

The training will help foster an awareness of the hazards encountered when working within the offshore wind industry and how to control and mitigate these hazards. For those individuals and companies who work, or anticipate working, on offshore wind assembly, installation, maintenance or construction, the OSHA-30 would be a primer for those who would be responsible for managing a construction project or would be involved in the planning and phase analysis to complete the project.
