WSRB Subscriber Services – Training Seminars and Continuing Education

June 26, 2013

WSRB Continuing EducationThe best kind of customer is an educated one; this goes for our customers and yours. That’s why WSRB offers a variety of continuing education seminars available to subscribing members in Washington and Oregon.

By having a better understanding of UL 300 kitchen suppression systems or woodworking hazards, you’re not only better equipped to assess your risks but also to educate your customers on safe practices and measures that they can take to help reduce their rates.

We are currently offering the following Approved CE courses:

  • About WSRB – This is an in-depth look at what we do and why we do it. Among other things, we will go over all of our tools, products, and website features so that you know what is available to you and how to use it.
  • Construction Types – In this class, we cover the six basic construction types, as well as burn rates, construction fire ratings, and other construction issues related to fire safety and fire codes. Something as simple as the presence of a 1-hour fire door can make a significant difference in fire safety. Know what to look for.
  • Automatic Sprinkler Systems – Learn about the operation and construction of automatic sprinkler systems including wet pipe, dry pipe, deluge, and fast response systems. With more and more buildings being constructed and retrofitted with sprinkler systems, it’s important to know how to make sure they are installed and functioning properly.
  • Restaurant Hood and Vent & UL 300 Fire Suppression Systems – Learn what makes a restaurant hood and vent system standard or non-standard, how to recognize a UL 300 fire suppression system, and how they work.  Grease fires present a serious risk to restaurant owners, and having the right equipment and maintaining it properly can make all the difference.
  • Paint Booths & Dust Collection – This class covers the proper construction and installation of paint booths and dust collection systems, including requirements, what to look for, common mistakes and misuses, and what makes a safe system. Paint booths and dust collection systems are used in many different types of manufacturing and present a high risk of fire and explosion. Make sure your clients are aware of the dangers associated with these occupancies.

If there are other topics you’re interested in learning about, let us know. We’ll work with you to see if we can make it happen. Like all of the services we’ve talked about in our Subscriber Services Series, these classes are available to all WSRB Subscribers at no cost.

If you’re interested in scheduling a class, contact Tracy Skinner at 206-273-7146.
