Standards for General Industry will be held Sept. 27-30, while the
Standards for Construction will be held Oct. 11-14 at building 6058.
Eddy said each 32-hour course is certified by OSHA through instruction
provided by the WSC.
OSHA 511 Standards for General Industry covers OSHA policies,
procedures, and standards for general industry, Eddy said. OSHA 510
Standards for General Construction covers OSHA policies, procedures, and
standards for construction.
“The industry and construction standards courses will cover a lot of the
more-frequent standard violations in which companies receive citations
and fines from OSHA inspectors, such as fall protection, the use of
ladders and/or scaffolding, and electrical-wiring methods and general
requirements.” Eddy said.
“We were able to provide the facilities and the training support at Fort
McCoy for our people as well as opening up the training to support other
safety professionals in the area who would need it,” Eddy said. “This is
a good example of Fort McCoy supporting the Army Community Covenant to
support safety for everyone in the Fort McCoy community, including our
neighboring communities, and enhance our quality of life.”
