Occupational Safety and Health

Occupational Safety and Health
Why train on OSH? Because it’s the law! The OSH module is designed as an introduction to and overview of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, establishment of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the guidelines that are used to enhance safety in a flight operation.

We have 3 eLearning modules based on typical workplace hazard exposures for various flight operations personnel. The Ramp module is designed for all employees. The Hangar module supplements the Ramp module for Maintenance techs and others working in the hangar. The Powered Vehicle module supplements the Ramp module for anyone operating forklifts, tugs, or hydraulic lifts.

 

Standards-29 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) 1910 is the OSH standard for General Industry, including aviation, regulating health and safety guidelines performed in the aviation industry as a whole. Although the OSH Act does not apply to flight deck crew on an aircraft in operation, it does apply on all of their duties leading up to the cockpit door including loading bags and walking through the hangar.

OSH standards compliance is an integral component of a Safety Management System (SMS). The module is responsive to the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) training requirement for "complying with all national and local occupational health and safety laws and requirements" defined in Chapter 9 of IS-BAO.

The combined 3 eLearning modules; Occupational Safety and Health – Ramp, Hangar, and Powered Vehicle can be used for 3 hours of credit towards IA Renewal. FAA Course Acceptance Number: C-IND-IM-171024-K-010-001.
