  • OSHA 10-Hour Course Completion Card

    Part I: Thursday, February 26 & Friday, February 27 - 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
    Registration at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday
    Presented by Dave Fletcher, Fletcher Safety Consulting
    Cost: $150/per person (Checks payable to First State Bank & Trust Co.)

    This 2-day course teaches recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention of safety and health hazards in construction. The course also provides information regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities and how to file a complaint. The course was also designed to help workers stay up-to-date with their OSHA safety requirements.

    Most large general contractors will not let a subcontractor or their workers on the jobsite without this course completion card (Sampson, Kiewit & Chief). Most large companies like Wal-Mart, Cargill, Tyson, Pioneer, Monsanto, Hy-Vee or any government agency will not let you do work for them without this course completion card. The course completion card is good for life.

    Attendance is required for both days. Lunch will be provided.

    Please note that space is limited to the first 40, but if by chance we have less than 20 enrolled, the class will be cancelled. Registration is $150 per person, payable the day of the class. No-shows or cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance of the class causing the class to fall below 20 registrants will be billed the full $150.
