LATEST NEWS

« MASC has suspended classroom and computer-based training at our Charleston, High Point and Wilmington locations until April 1st »

Temporary Suspension of Training!!

The MASC staff at all locations are and have been monitoring changing conditions across North and South Carolina specifically related to the Covid-19 coronavirus threat. Over the past few weeks, we have redoubled our efforts to maintain sanitary conditions at all three of our training centers.

But the fact is that classrooms and computer labs are places where people congregate, and we serve a group of people who travel widely and frequently in the dispatch of their work. Given the way this virus spreads and grows, there is simply no way we can apply engineering and/or administrative controls in our training centers that will eliminate the current and growing risk of exposure to a potentially dangerous health risk.

Therefore, following the lead of NC and SC schools, the safest, least risky course of immediate action is to suspend classes. Therefore, we will be suspending training at all three locations effective Tuesday, March 16th for the next two weeks. Staff plans to reassess conditions daily until further notice, and to adjust our operations plan accordingly as needed.

Staff is already reaching out to participating owner sites to determine if there are emergency or extremely urgent training needs to be addressed in the short term. If there are, we pledge to work with the sites to find a way to fulfill those training needs if possible. We will also reach out to contracting companies that have people registered for training to determine immediate next steps.

MASC is not taking this step lightly. But if we are true to our mission of "safety first," we must take this pre-emptive step, and we must take it sooner rather than later. Thank you for your support and your patience as we work through this together. Please do not hesitate to call with any questions or concerns related to schedule and training.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

Online Registration

Registering for classes is easy! Just click on the SORT Login & Accounts link, log in and confirm your choices. A company account is available for companies using one person to enroll the company's attendees. A student account can be created if you need to enroll youself.

Pre-registration ensures you have a seat in the classes you select. When you complete a registration request, staff will review for accuracy and send you a verification email to confirm your registration. It's just like making a flight reservation.

Please remember to double-check the confirmation email for the correct information, especially the confirmed dates and times. It is sometimes necessary to modify the requested dates and times. The correct scheduling information will be reflected in the confirmation you receive from MASC via email or phone.

TAPPISAFE Training Available

Contractors working at pulp and paper mills that require specific TAPPISAFE safety training for working at those mills can take those classes in our MASC computer labs! NOW!

And, if you are a contractor and work at Kapstone Charleston and have or are taking the Basic Orientation Plus®/Refresher, you can substitute the BOP training for the TAPPISAFE general training requirement. In other words, you can go directly to the Kapstone Charleston site specific program once your BOP training record has been shared with the TAPPISAFE folks.

To learn more about saving time and money with this option, call the Charleston office (843-797-8820) or the Wilmington office (910-762-9557). We can help expedite the process.

Duke Energy PowerSafe Training

PowerSafe is a computer-based program designed to provide general safety orientation and Duke Energy FHO company specific training for the utility workforce. Duke Power requires completion of this training before contractors come on-site to work. Any contractor employee providing labor services in an industrial setting at Duke sites must complete PowerSafe training before arriving at the site to begin work.

These training classes are available at all of our Mid Atlantic Safety Council training centers. Preregistration is required. Call 910-762-9557 for more information!

What is SORT?

SORT stands for our Student Online Registration & Training management system. Create a company account to register students and manage their training, an individual student account to register yourself for MASC training, or if you represent an owner site or reciprocal safety council, you can create an account to look up student records.

Refresher Training At All Locations

The beauty of reciprocal basic safety orientations is that they are accepted at all of the MASC participating manufacturing and owner sites. You take one basic orientation, and it's good at more than 20 locations.

The basic safety orientation refresher, an annual event, is even better. Attendees cover the same data, but since they have successfully completed an instructor led class, they qualify to do the refresher via computer in one of our three computer labs. What takes five hours to cover in a classroom takes about two to cover with computer-based training. And like the classroom version, the Basic Orientation Plus® refresher is accepted at all MASC participating sites.

Need a Safety Orientation For Workers, Visitors or Both?

MASC has the ability to script safety orientation presentations! MASC personnel have been involved in the production of over fifty such orientations, in video, multimedia computer based training, and other formats.

Given staff experience with safety guidelines and sites across NC and SC, we already have identified topics that are frequently covered in these presentations. It doesn't take long to research your company's unique needs and craft a script for use with workers and visitors. In many cases, a visitor's orientation can be extracted from the coverage for contractors and other workers. You can get two beneficial orientations out of one project!

MASC has a relationship with a multimedia production company that can assist with higher end video and multimedia development projects. For more information, call either of our offices, or email our lead developer.
