We All Have the Power to Save a Life!

Let us Teach You How!

Accidents happen. Someone chokes on an ice cube or gets stung by a bee. It is important to know when to call 9-1-1 -- it is for life-threatening emergencies. While waiting for help to arrive, you may be able to save someone's life.

New research shows the lifesaving procedure can be effectively taught in a little more than 20 minutes. Each of us has the power to save a life - if you know how. Safety is more than just guidelines and paperwork, it involves real lives.

Our CPR and First Aid courses teach you basic and life saving techniques. Your employees will thank you for the chance to learn skills that will be with them for a lifetime. This course provides a curriculum to teach students how to maintain a victim's life until the arrival of emergency response personnel.

Get started saving lives today by enrolling in First Aid and/or CPR Certification!

Maintenance of Traffic

The NFSC is proud to offer a 16 Hour F.D.O.T. Maintenance of Traffic Intermediate Level Training and a 8 Hour F.D.O.T. Maintenance of Traffic Intermediate Level Refresher Training through FL Approved Provider No. 125 Florida Association of Safety Councils.

Effective January 1, 2002, all personnel involved in the following areas must have this training. This includes municipal workers, contractors, and utility workers who have:

  • Direct responsibility for placement of work zone traffic control devices.
  • Direct responsibility for field maintenance of work zone traffic devices.
  • Inspection of the placement or operational function of work zone traffic control devices
  • Drafting or electronic generation of work zone traffic control plans.

Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of the equipment, techniques and procedures necessary to safely and correctly set up and maintain traffic. It will also upgrade their performance for legal aspects and safety practice for establishing work zones on state and federal highways. By using visual and hands on techniques, this course will enable the participant to set up a safe and legal work area, as well as, create a safer environment for the public when approaching work crews maintaining the highways.

FDOT (Traffic Engineering, Topic # 625-010-010-a, page 1) states that persons possessing valid and verifiable certificates from approved courses shall be the only personnel approved to perform the maintenance of traffic activities for which they have been trained.
                

Forklift

Did you know that forklift overturns are the leading cause of fatalities involving forklifts? They represent about 25% of all forklift related deaths.

This is why OSHA requires that all new forklift operators must be trained & certified, regardless of the amount of experience. All forklift operators must be evaluated for competency at least every three years. It is a violation of federal law for anyone to operate a forklift who is not properly trained and certified.

Operator retraining is required under any of the following circumstances:

  • Two or three years have passed in which there are no operational or equipment changes or near-misses.
  • If any unsafe operating procedures have been observed.
  • An type of accident or near-miss occurs.
  • When any new material handling equipment is introduced.

The new rules require that forklift training be specific to the equipment you operate and specific to the conditions under which the equipment is operated (site specific). This course meets 29CFR 1910.178 standards.

Bloodborne Pathogens

As someone who may come in contact with blood as part of your job, you are required by OSHA to be trained in bloodborne pathogens. Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). OSHA fines for non-compliance can be as high as $70,000. Avoid fines and stay compliant with effective training that will help keep you safe and up to date!

OSHA-authorized Outreach Training

We offer OSHA-authorized safety training for OSHA Outreach Training Program. The program provides information about employer's responsibility, how to file a complaint, and worker's rights. The program also provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces.

Workers can attend 10-hour or 30-hour classes that are taught by OSHA-authorized trainers. The 10-hour class is recommended for entry level workers while, supervisors or those with some safety responsibility should attend the 30-hour class. OSHA hopes to provide workers with more knowledge about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to our nation's productivity. Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job. Get your OSHA-authorized training today!

Note: This is a voluntary program and does not meet training requirements for any OSHA standards.
