Parkin Electric Offers In-House OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety and Health Course.
Because safety is our #1 concern, we recently provided all of our employees an opportunity to take the OSHA 10-hour Construction Safety and Health training course. We invited Vaughn Pugh from Integrity Safety Services to bring his training program into our office on a recent Saturday for an all day, comprehensive session. Vaughn did a great job in aligning his training with a multitude of real world examples that our folks could relate to in their everyday work activities.
Topics that were covered in this training:
♦ Fall Protection
♦ Electrical Safety
♦ Power Hand Tools
♦ Scaffold Use
♦ Ergonomic Awareness
♦ Hazard Communication
♦ Excavation/Trench Safety – Competent Person
♦ Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
♦ Stair & Ladder Safety
♦ Confined Space Entry – Competent Person
Parkin Electric Safety Manager, Maureen Parkin summed up the reason for our companies investment in this specific training course, and safety training in general, by stating “We offered the OSHA 10-hour class to all of our employees to give them a broad based safety training experience, and our hope is that taking the class as a group, will promote a team approach to working safely together. Also, having all of our employees trained in OSHA 10 will give us more credibility as a progressive and forward thinking contractor. Our customers can feel confident that we make safety a priority”.
