As an inclusion in our Plumbing Apprenticeship curriculum, HPE sponsors the OSHA 10-Hour Awareness training three times per year -- and recently completed our Spring training with 19 students at the Fairfield Inn in Monument, CO!
Each operational group is included in this training which is based on HPE’s specific teams and is a requirement, given the nature of our performed work. This training is required for HPE's plumbing and sheet metal apprentices and is a prerequisite to moving on to the third year of the plumbing apprenticeship program -- and is required for our Special Projects team members, HPE Service Division technicians, supervisors, and large contract lead men, as well. The training is a great opportunity to introduce OSHA and its mission to help in our mission to keep our workers safe; in addition, HPE can incorporate many examples from our own Safety Health Program into the training as they relate to specific OSHA standards.
OSHA 10-Hour training topics include: Introduction to OSHA, The Focus Four (Falls,Electrical, Caught In Between, Struck By), PPE, Stairways & Ladders, Health Hazards in the Workplace, Excavations, and Cranes. HPE employees encounter or must be competent in all of these areas of construction safety.
Kudos to our team members who recently completed the Spring course: Jared Abila, AJ Acosta, Tyson Aoyagi, Jamin Baysinger, Richard Colburn, Nathaniel Grenier, Chris Houle, Magnetti Isamu, Caaleigh Jack-Charle, Remington Kirkpatrick, Daniel Lombardo, Cody Marquardt, Andrew Padilla, Santino Santovena, Stone Sorenson, William Spence, Robert Szczech, Andrew Tippetts, and Genesis Wynn. The next OSHA 10-Hour trainings will be held in August and November; we are grateful to our team for their safety diligence and training focus!
