COVID-19 CLEANING AND DISINFECTING TRAINING 

The Safety and Health Training Center will be providing online and in-person training for those companies and facilities that are providing cleaning, disinfecting and decontamination of Facilities and Buildings.  The training will focus on the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and New York State Department of Health (DOH) guidelines as well as discussion regarding the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) List N of Disinfectants.

The online training consists of a four (4) hour program which is intended for those who currently have some form of environmental cleanup/decontamination and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) training including Asbestos, Lead, Mold or Hazardous Materials Response training.  

The in-person eight (8) hour program will provide the attendee with a detailed look into the Safe Work Practices that should be incorporated for COVID-19 cleaning to include proper Personal Protective Equipment donning and doffing as well as disinfecting procedures.  This is intended for those who do not have previous environmental training.

The classes will be held either online (4 hour program) or at our training facility and in accordance with the guidelines from the CDC, OSHA, WHO and the NYSDOH, we are limiting the total number of students for the in-person programs to ten (10) to provide an adequate Social Distancing which is the primary Non-Pharmaceutical Infection Control action.  We have also implemented a continuous cleaning and disinfecting process throughout the day to protect all attendees.

World Renowned Photojournalist Earl Dotter visits 
The Safety and Health Training Center

On October 30, 2019, the world renowned photojournalist, Mr. Earl Dotter, was at Tri-Main Center to celebrate WNYCOSH's 40th anniversary of helping workers across Western New York. Mr. Dotter's amazing photo display was also available for the public to see as shown in some of the pictures.

We were honored to have Mr. Dotter come to our training facility and spend time with our students. Mr. Dotter asked us if he could take some pictures of the facility as well as the training that we were doing. He also indicated that this was the first time since the 1970's that he had photographed Asbestos training.

Special thank you to Greg Andrews, Rob Barr and Les Benedict for agreeing to do some hands-on training and to allow themselves to be photographed.

The remaining pictures were taken as Mr. Dotter was photographing the action.

More photos will be forthcoming.

To Mr. Dotter, thank you so much for spending time with us and thank you for your amazing work.

If you are interested in seeing Mr. Dotter's work, please go to his website at Earl Dotter
