Hexavalent Chromium and Combustible Dust – New Courses from Convergence Training


The Convergence Training production team is hard at work on several new courses for Environmental, Health, and Safety training.

Hexavalent Chromium

First to hit the shelves will be our new Hexavalent Chromium course. The module is based on OSHA’s 1910.1026 standard for General Industry and 1926.1126 standard for the Construction Industry, and presents information on:

• What hexavalent chromium is
• How it’s formed
• Health hazards of hexavalent chromium
• Risks and controls during welding operations
• OSHA exposure levels (AL and PEL)
• Exposure monitoring and record keeping
• Employee notification
• Engineering and work practice controls
• Respirators and PPE
• Medical surveillance



Combustible Dusts

Next in the pipeline will be our new course on Combustible Dusts. The course is based on OSHA’s “Status Report on Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program” and “Hazard Communication Guidance for Combustible Dusts” and presents information on:

• The hazards of combustible dusts
• The Dust Fire and Explosion Pentagon
• Controls to reduce the risk of combustible dust explosions
• Facility dust analyses to prevent dust explosions
• Primary and secondary combustible dust explosions

Both training courses are being produced in the style you’ve come to expert from Convergence, with state-of-the-art 3-D animations, narrated scripts that viewers can listen to and read along with, and a test bank of interactive, randomized questions.
