Wire Rope Safety and Operation

Wire ropes are used on machines that lift and move heavy loads. Because of the potentially high loading on wire ropes, they can be one of the most dangerous pieces of equipment at a worksite. In this course, you will learn which personal protective equipment to wear while using wire ropes, safety guidelines for working with wire ropes, and how to recognize potential wire rope hazards. Because of the potential for accidents, knowing how to properly use and safely work around wire ropes is crucial to your safety and the safety of your co-workers.

Ergonomics for Industrial Environments

Understand how to recognize and reduce the stress on your body from your daily work environment. This computer-based training module discusses musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) and prevention techniques, including engineering and administrative controls. Motion-based, physical, environmental, and psychological risk factors are also covered.
