C & V Home Improvement, specializing in replacement windows and door, siding, guttering, and weatherization services, is partnering with the Kansas Building Industry Workers Compensation Fund (KBIWCF) to offer Occupational Safety and Health Administration training for contractors in Central Kansas. The 10 hour course will teach basic OSHA regulations and practices for construction workers.
Matt Hoisington, owner of C & V, said, "This training is about more than just complying with OSHA regulations. As construction professionals, we want to do everything possible to insure that our employees remain safe on the job site. I encourage other area construction firms to take advantage of this local training opportunity." The training will take place Jan. 24 from 1-5 p.m. and Jan. 25 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the KansasWorks office located at 1025 Main, Great Bend.
Additionally, KBIWCF will conduct Lead Safe Work Practices training from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Jan. 26 at KansasWorks. This certification is required for contractors who perform work on homes built prior to 1978. EPA regulations which became effective in April of 2010 and are now administered by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment require certain steps be taken to ensure health and safety are not compromised due to airborne lead particles disturbed during the renovation process.
