Training to Consider for Terminal Operations
Updated: Sep 3
If you work on the waterfront, you know that you face work challenges that many other businesses do not. And as such, you and your employees need training specifically to address those challenges. At West Coast Resource Services, we offer both in-person and online training for several of these challenges. The following are a few of the top ones to consider.
DOT Hazard Awareness Training
Are your employees up-to-date on the Hazardous Materials Regulations? Do you all know what to do in the event of an emergency involving hazardous materials? If not, you should consider taking our DOT Hazard Awareness Training. It’s a three-hour workshop that prepares you and your team to put these regulations straight to work.
Reasonable Suspicion Assessment Training
Alcohol and drug use can have a direct impact on your employees and your business, and it’s important that you know how to handle the situation. If you think that one of your employees is under the influence, do you know what steps to take? Does your staff know the signs of drug and alcohol abuse so that they can report it?
If you answered no to any of these questions, it’s a really good sign that you need Reasonable Suspicion Assessment Training. Our training can teach you how to carry out the assessment, determine what reasonable cause is, which medical issues might resemble drug impairment, and much more. It can help you feel confident enough to make the right decision if you suspect any alcohol or drug use.
Safety Essentials Training for Frontline Managers
It’s essential for your daily operations to know federal and state OSHA standards as they apply to your business. Without this knowledge, you could face undesirable consequences. And since we teach a two-hour workshop on these standards, there is no reason not to dive in and learn all you can.
You don’t have to be a doctor to save a life, but you do need some important training. Do you know what to do if anyone starts choking or having a heart attack? What if they’re having trouble breathing or have a stroke? It’s important that you know how to manage these situations until emergency medical services arrive. Our Heartsaver First Aid, CPR, and AED training can teach you these essential care tasks. It’s a 6.5-hour workshop that provides you with an American Heart Association Provider card, which is good for two years.
