CHICAGO — Connexion is offering a free One Day Safety Training Course. The course, scheduled to take place on September 22nd, 2016 in Chicago, is aimed at giving electrical workers core competency in working safely. The company added that it was a must for safety directors and workers alike.
“In this line of work, nothing is more important than safety,” said Matt Gajda, General Manager of Connexion’s Contractor and Facility Solutions Division. “An unsafe working environment can be fatally hazardous, and all too often, hazards can be prevented with a little training—saving not just lives, but also maintaining your business’ reputation as a safe, reliable one. Our One Day Safety Training Course is designed to help professional electrical contractors, plant managers and safety directors alike to ensure that they are operating responsibly in safe conditions”
The announcement comes after network news showed scenes of a near-fatal accident in Rochester, N.Y. A young apprentice collapsed into a manhole while installing medium-voltage cables, but was saved due to the safety processes in place; without those processes, the story could have gone in a very different direction.
The One Day Safety Training Course’s 1-day curriculum effectively covers key areas, including mitigating unnecessary hazards for added peace of mind, while also enabling compliance with OSHA and other regulatory organizations to manage liabilities.
Attendees will learn and acquire a 12-month certificate for the following:
- Firestop Certification Training: gain an understanding of UL requirements, including proper product selection and installation
- Lockout/Tagout Certification: learn how to audit facilities for proper LOTO use and recommend, select and install the devices, which are required by OSHA
Additionally, attendees will learn how to apply safe thinking to the following:
- Ergonomics: learn proper tool efficiency and safety, while getting to grips with the latest innovative tools from Bosch, Encore Wire and iToolco
- Fall Protection and Ladder Safety: learn how to wear and inspect fall protection gear, along with information on proper ladder usage and inspection
