 Lifting and rigging work tasks are considered a high hazard task by many companies. It is important to not only understand proper rigging techniques, but also the other hazards that accompany this type of work task.

Join Al Abel of Mazzella Lifting Technologies as he addresses the proper care, use and inspection of slings and below the hook lifting devices. OSHA and ASME safe lifting practice standards and a “take away” lifting plan will also be discussed.

Chamber members $25; prospective members $35.

Register for MVSC Program + VING! Microburst Training

NOW AVAILABLE: New Microburst Safety Training from Ving!

Microburst safety training is a very popular, effective, non-time-consuming way for you and your employees to keep safety top of mind. With a library of more than 8,000 microbursts, topics selected will either align with the topic of training delivered at the current month’s MVSC meeting or cover the most common injury types recorded (e.g. slips, trips and falls, violence in the workplace, ladder safety, electrical shock, etc.).

Each microburst typically takes 5 minutes to view and will include some combination of a short video, image, checklist or survey. As part of this offering, each person you sign up will receive one or two microbursts a week for 4 weeks, starting with the Monday immediately following the scheduled MVSC meeting. At time of registering, you can choose to receive microbursts through email or text message. Certificates of completion will be sent to you at the end of the microburst series.

Cost is $35 per person, per training. If you have any questions, contact Karen Stacey at 330.744.2131, ext. 1241.
