It incorporates the online course with an additional train the trainer module, as well as the training kit.

    Why Do I Need Carbon Monoxide Safety Training?

    In line with regulations, anyone who works with carbon monoxide must receive training prior to working on their own. While requirements for trainings related to forklifts or other processes are very specific, most other topics don’t have such specific requirements. Nevertheless, it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

    When it comes to refresher trainings, standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    hard hat training swish of orange color

    Are carbon monoxide detectors necessary?

    arrow icon

    Yes. Carbon monoxide is dangerous because it cannot be easily detected. It has no odor or taste. Despite being completely undetectable by humans, it is extremely toxic. This is why tools such as carbon monoxide detectors are so important.

    What are some signs of carbon monoxide poisoning?

    arrow icon

    Carbon monoxide poisoning can be deadly if action is not taken. During the early stages, carbon monoxide can cause a victim to feel headaches and confusion. As the conditions worsen, a victim may experience nausea and vomiting before ultimately going unconscious.

    Where is carbon monoxide found?

    arrow icon

    Carbon monoxide can come from a variety of sources. Gas-powered equipment commonly produces carbon monoxide. In open environments, carbon monoxide produced in this way is harmless. However, if you use gas-powered equipment in a closed environment, then you are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
