OSHA 10-Hour and 20-Hour Training Programs Help Safety's Bottom Line
Safety will always be an integral part of Henkels & McCoy’s core values and culture. Our commitment in this area is energized by participation in initiatives such as the OSHA Electric Transmission and Distribution (ET&D) Partnership’s 10- and 20-hour training programs.
Henkels & McCoy is a Charter Member of this historic Partnership, formed in 2004 by bringing together utility contractor CEOs and safety professionals, trade association and union leadership, and OSHA representatives. The group’s mission is eliminating significant injuries and fatalities in the ET&D construction industry.
The ET&D 10-hour program is targeted to power operations personnel and consists of the following modules: Intro to OSHA, Electrical Safety, Grounding and Bonding, Lifting and Rigging, Personnel Protective Equipment/FR Clothing, Fall Protection for Electrical Construction, Job Briefings, Trenching and Excavations, and Confined/Enclosed Spaces. To date, more than 1,500 H&M employees have successfully completed this training.
The 20-hour Supervisory Leadership Outreach training can be taken as a standalone program, is open to foremen and above, and is appropriate for all lines of business. This program includes: Supervisor Training in Reducing Accidents, Communications Training, Conducting Safety Meetings, Job Hazard Analysis, Job Briefings, Site Inspection, Skills Assessment, Company Specific Training, Managing Safety, and On the Front Line.
The 20-hour standalone program is required training for H&M power personnel at or above the foreman level. Additionally, all executives at the VP level or above have responded to EVP/COO Jon Schoff’s challenge to successfully complete this training.
