Habitat offering competent person safety training class

Habitat for Humanity is offering a Competent Person Safety Training class June 30-July1 for people operating construction sites or associated with construction activities.

It is an OSHA requirement that there be a trained, competent person on a job site. The consequences of not complying could be more than you think.

The training sessions, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will cover four major safety concerns:

  • Fall protection
  • Scaffolding
  • General job site electrical safety
  • Stairways and ladders

The class, which will be held at at Habitat's office, 1954 North Yellowstone Highway, is available to Habitat and non-Habitat members. Attendance is limited to 30 people. Cost is $100, so pre-registration is recommended. The deadline is June 24. Contact Kim Short at 528-0298.
