Information and training is a critical part of the hazard communication program. Information regarding hazards and protective measures are provided to workers through written labels and material safety data sheets. Through the effective information and training provided by E-3 instructors students will learn to read and understand such information, determine how it can be obtained and used in their own workplaces, and understand the risks of exposure to the chemicals in their workplaces as well as the ways to protect themselves. It is our belief that a properly conducted training program will ensure comprehension and understanding and it is not sufficient to either just read material to the students, or simply hand them material to read. E-3 Hazcom training creates a climate where students feel free to ask questions which helps to ensure that the information is understood. E-3 will customize Hazcom training for your employees always remembering that the underlying purpose of the hazard communication program is to reduce the incidence of chemical source illnesses and injuries.

Fall Protection is discussed as it relates to 29 CFR 1926.503(a) which includes: The nature of fall hazards in the work area; The correct procedures for erecting, maintaining, disassembling, and inspecting the fall protection systems to be used; The use and operation of guardrail systems, personal fall arrest systems, safety net systems, warning line systems, safety monitoring systems, controlled access zones, and other protection to be used; The role of each employee in the safety monitoring system when this system is used; The correct procedures for the handling and storage of equipment and materials and the erection of overhead protection; and The role of employees in fall protection plans.
Quantitative fit testing (QNFT) confirms a respirator's fit by comparing concentration levels of a substance outside the respirator to the concentration levels of the same substance inside the respirator. Passing a quantitative respirator fit test with a quantitative fit test machine proves that the facepiece is sized correctly and that the person knows how to put it on correctly.
E-3 can provide on-site respirator quantitative fit testing using a state-of-the-art PortaCount 8030 Respirator Fit Tester eliminating the guesswork associated with the tedious and error-prone qualitative fit test methods. If you require fit testing, count on us using the PortaCount to provide the fastest, easiest and best OSHA-accepted fit test method.
E-3 can also custom tailor training to meet your needs including: NFPA 1405/1081 compliant Marine/Industrial Fire Suppression, OSHA 29CFR1910.120(q)(6)(iv) compliant Hazardous Materials Specialist training for railroad Tank car, Highway Tanker and Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Field Transfers. We can also facilitate confined space rescue, hazmat and oil spill scenarios and drills to fit a client’s individual needs.
