OSHA Forklift Certification: Demolition Academy
March 9-10, the National Demolition Association will hold its 17th Demolition Academy.
This intensive safety and management training program is aimed at professionals involved in all aspects of the demolition process, including OSHA forklift training. The Demolition Academy will be held at the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio, TX.
On both days, the Demolition Academy is offering an “OSHA 10-hour Demolition Specific Program” taught by NDA Board Member Mike Casbon of ERM and other members of the NDA Safety Committee. The course covers all elements of OSHA’s training requirements and will go over the requirements for OSHA forklift certification. They will discuss the “Focus Four” hazards; personal protective equipment; health hazards in construction; hand and power tools; scaffolding; and safety issues. At the end of the 10-hour program, you will have the option to receive an OSHA completion card which can help to fulfill the requirements for forklift certification. Anyone seeking to gain their OSHA forklift certification would benefit from this Demolition Academy as they will be presented with the latest regulations and safety measures.
This event will also cover such topics as “Industrial Hygiene 101”, “Universal Waste Identification, Removal, Packaging and Disposal”, “Demolition: Practices, Technology and Management”, and “Project Management.” The Demolition Academy is scheduled immediately before this year’s NDA Annual convention in Texas to help convention attendees looking for safety training to economize on travel costs.
