Motor Vehicles, Mechanized Equipment, and Marine Operations Safety
Online Training Certification Course
29 CFR 1926 Subpart O
From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.
This course presents an overview of motor vehicles, mechanized equipment, and marine operations safety training. This course will help you understand regulations governing motor vehicles and mechanized equipment, including material-handling equipment, pile-driving equipment, and barges. Such equipment poses a serious threat to operator, worker, and site safety. Everyone at a worksite needs to understand the dangers related to the site's equipment. Employees also need to understand the required and recommended employer training and policies necessary to ensure safety at workplaces that large equipment. These efforts will improve site safety and reduce job-related injuries.
This course is for:
Motor vehicles and mechanized equipment pose a serious threat to operators, workers, and site safety. It is critical that everyone on the worksite understands the dangers related to motorized machinery and be trained to identify and handle such hazards. These efforts will improve site safety and reduce job-related injuries and fatalities.

Case Study: Drugs and Alcohol in Fatal Work Crashes
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published a study titled "Fatigue, Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Medical Factors in Fatal-to-the-Driver Heavy Truck Crashes."
According to NTSB's toxicology reports:
- 33 percent of drivers who were fatally injured tested positive for alcohol or drugs
- Fatigue and fatigue-drug interactions were involved in more fatalities than alcohol and other drugs of abuse alone
- A disproportionately high percentage of drivers who used drugs are single, separated, or divorced
Key Takeaway: Driving while "under the influence" contributed to one-third of fatal injuries in this study. However, drugs and alcohol are not the only factors that can lead to fatal vehicle-related injuries: Fatigue also plays a key role in many accidents. How can your workplace promote safe, sober, and non-drowsy driving? Consider this and your role in workplace safety. By setting a good example yourself, you are contributing to a healthier workplace.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 covers general industry regulations, while 1926 is designated for construction industry standards.
This online certification course is based on the regulations set forth in OSHA 29 CFR 1926 Subpart H, as well as OSHA 29 CFR 1910 Subpart N. Both subparts address safety standards for construction and general industry related to materials handling, storage, use, and disposal.
