Lead Training & Certification

Meets all OSHA Lead Awareness Training Requirements

We Offer Three Differnt Types of Safety Trainings

Our OSHA-compliant certification courses are updated to reflect the most recent changes made to safety standards. Whether you want a certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.

Online Training

Online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign and monitor employee training progress and exam scores.

Training Kits

The training kit is for those who want the freedom of doing the training themselves. It's a PowerPoint presentation you can use to train a group of trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Training Course?

Our Lead Awareness training course is OSHA compliant, and our online version fulfills OSHA’s classroom training requirement. Each class contains sections on exposure routes and effects, monitoring, identification, safe work practices, PPE, and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA.

Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following regulations for lead exposure:

Certification Standards

U.S. Standards

  • 1926.62- Construction regulations for lead
  • 1910.1025- General Industry regulations for lead

This option results in an OSHA compliant lifetime trainer certification from Hard Hat Training. This certification is not company-specific, meaning you can take it with you should you change employers.

    Why Do I Need Safety Training?

    The purpose of this presentation is to help you understand the hazards that lead presents and how to safely work when there is potential for exposure. Training on lead exposure is vital to ensuring workers’ safety when jobs include lead. Workers should also be thoroughly trained on any duties that necessitate lead exposure. No matter what controls, procedures, and precautions are presented on a job, they will be worthless unless workers are trained on how to properly apply them.

    When it comes to refresher health and safety training, the standards in some instances 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.

    Stay Informed On All Things

    Did You Know?

    Last year, a study estimated that over 800,000 workers were potentially exposed to lead in general industry, and another 840,000 in construction industry.

    Eating paint chips is a major source of exposure for small children. Lead has a sweet flavor, making it an attractive snack option for kids. It is so sweet, in fact, that the Ancient Romans would use it as an artificial sweetener and add it to their wine.

    Lead is common on a number of construction sites, especially demolition, salvage, removal, encapsulating, renovation, and cleanup operations. (Source: Health & Safety Magazine)
