Dipping, Coating & Cleaning Operations

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910.123-126

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online training course provides an overview of the applicable regulations and hazards related to dipping, coating, and cleaning processes. Cleaning, dipping, and coating training course topics include modes and sources of exposure, as well as prescribed safety standards and practices.

Dipping, coating, and cleaning operations are involved in a variety of industrial processes. Dip tanks and dip tank coatings contain dangerous chemicals that can pose serious health problems. Workers are at risk of health and physical hazards such as toxic vapors, explosions, and chemical burns.

This course is for:
This OSHA training course is designed for anyone who works with chemicals used in dip tanks for dipping, coating, and cleaning processes. Examples include, but are not limited to, dip tank operations such as paint dipping, electroplating, tanning, degreasing, stripping, and roll coating.

Safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives. This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA.

Case Study: A large explosion and fire occurred at the Barton Solvents facility in Des Moines, Iowa, on October 29, 2007. The company packages, stores, and delivers solvents and other chemical products, many of which are widely used in the paint and coatings industry. An unidentified source ignited the ethyl acetate solvent being loaded into a 330-gallon square tank, called a tote. The operator who was filling the tote turned away momentarily when he heard what was described as a popping sound, which witnesses believe was a pressure relief device. A fireball then erupted from the tote. Pressure from the eruption knocked the filling nozzle out of the tank, spraying ethyl acetate into the room and onto the operator. His clothing ignited, but he quickly removed the ignited clothing and escaped serious injury. Another operator tried to use a hand-held extinguisher to battle the blaze, but it emptied before the fire could be extinguished. The second operator then shut off all power to the area and the plant was successfully evacuated. The flames spread quickly and eventually consumed and destroyed a large portion of the facility. Investigators believe that static electricity may have been the ignition source.

Key Takeaway: To reduce the risks associated with managing chemicals for industrial coating, it is important to ensure that any portable container used to add liquid to a tank is electrically bonded to the dip tank and positively grounded to prevent static electrical sparks or arcs.

    Additional Resources

It will take a MINIMUM of 2 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as dipping, coating, and cleaning operations.

To ensure compliance with proper dipping, coating, and cleaning processes, safety training must be conducted whenever there are changes in the workplace or types of personal protective equipment, or when inadequacies in employees' knowledge or skills indicate the need for additional training to retain the necessary understanding to work safely. This dipping, cleaning, and coating training course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
