The Safe Bolting: Principles and Practices (OSHA #7110) course covers awareness of safety issues involved in bolting applications. Course topics include safe operation and handling of high powered bolting tools, pressure vessels and piping, machinery or mechanical joints, and structural connections. The course provides workshops and demonstrations of safe bolting applications. The target audience is first line mechanical operators including millwrights, pipefitters, and those who work with mechanical joints as part of their daily work. Upon course completion, the student will have the ability to understand the basic technology of bolted joints, safety principles associated with tool selection and operation, workplace conditions, and bolting methods and procedures.
NOTE: Course topics vary by track.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires participants to fully attend an enrolled class in its entirety (100% of the course). We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a participant out of class and have a policy to handle those situations. If a participant misses less than 20% of the class, he/she may be able to perform makeup work equivalent to the class time missed. If 20% or more of the class is missed, the participant may attend a makeup course upon approval by TEEX’s OTI Education Center Director.
