Hazard Communications: Chemicals pose a wide range of health and physical hazards. Hazard Communications is training designed to ensure that information about these hazards and associated protective measures are known. POOL/PACT provides members with a subscription service to EHS/Velocity – MSDS Online, which is an on-line service to identify, control, and monitor all on-site hazardous materials.
Bloodborne Pathogens: Participants learn how bloodborne pathogens are spread and how to prevent exposure incidents by following work practice controls. Topics include engineering controls, PPE, personal hygiene, cleaning/disinfecting equipment and supplies; and recognizing, reporting, and following up on employee exposures to infectious materials. POOL/PACT can assist a member with establishing an Exposure Safety Plan.
Lockout/Tagout Training: Lockout/Tagout training covers the servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment in which the unexpected energization or startup of the machines or equipment, or release of stored energy, could harm employees. This standard/training establishes minimum performance requirements for the control of hazardous energy.
Electrical Safety: Working with electricity can be dangerous. Electricity can be a serious workplace hazard. Electrical Safety training is necessary to educate and protect employees exposed to dangers such as electric shock, electrocution, fires, and exposures. POOL/PACT can also provide infrared heat inspections to discover failing electrical systems.
Safety Program and Committee Training: Generally, Nevada employers with 10 or more employees are required to have a Written Workplace Safety Program. Employers with 25 or more employees are required to have a Safety Committee. POOL/PACT can assist with review, updating, or implementing a Safety Program for any of its members.
Loss Control Excellence Program: Each member is served by a dedicated loss control representative who is available to meet with the member and explore various loss control strategies appropriate for their given operations. The Loss Control Excellence Program (LCEP) involves a rigorous review of the member’s policies and procedures geared towards the reduction of loss. Members who complete the program receive a cash award and a plaque representing their commitment to implementing effective loss control measures. Additionally, upon completion of the LCEP, the member may appoint a representative to sit on the Loss Control Committee and participate in development of loss control programs.
