OSHA 30 in Omaha

OmahaOsha2018

The OSHA 30 Training Program provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint.

The OSHA 30 Training Program employees attend 30 hours of classes delivered by Jeff Bennett, Thompson Electric’s OSHA authorized trainer.  The 30 hour class is intended for employees with responsibility for safety in the field or as a refresher class for their personal well-being. The past 2 months Jeff Bennett provided OSHA 30 training for 16 employees from our Omaha office.  This was the fourth OSHA 30 Training class in the past couple years in Omaha.

The 16 employees that attended the OSHA 30 Training were Charles Ball, George Turner, Mick Coffman, Daniel Erdbruger, Bret Falk, Nick Guthrie, Dave Hibler, Lynn Kahnk, Brad Madej, James Mahr, Nick Vincent, Aaron Miller, Chris Saab, Doug Stephens, Dan VanGrud and Richard Roan.

We are proud of the commitment made to achieve the OSHA 30 Certification and recognize those who attended with an OSHA 30 Safety Vest.

Congratulations to all…

The OSHA 30 Training Program provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. This is a voluntary program and attended on their own time.

The OSHA 30 Training Program employees attend 30 hours of classes delivered by Jeff Bennett, Thompson Electric’s authorized trainer.  The 30 hour class is intended for employees with responsibility for safety in the field or as a refresher class for their personal well-being.

The past 3 weekends Jeff Bennett provided OSHA 30 training for 19 employees from our Omaha office.  This was the second OSHA 30 Training class in the past year in Omaha and this class was asked for by a group of our employees.  We think it’s great when a group of employees ask for Safety Training.

The 19 employees that attended the OSHA 30 Training were Joe Perchal, Kevin Dawson, Russ Armstrong, Garrett Taub, Chris Estelle, Austin Taylor, Riley Fischer, Ryan Gilbert, Tom Plambeck, John McCaul, John Hilt, Charlie Wenck, Dwayne Goodman, Dean McCarthy, Bill O’Shea, Christian Thomas, Chris Osborn, Corey Osborn and Steve Tebben.

We are proud of the commitment made to achieve the OSHA 30 Certification and recognize those who attended with an OSHA 30 Hooded Sweatshirt.

OSHA 30 class in Sioux City:

OSHA-

This past November, in continuing Thompson Electric’s commitment to safety for our employees and job site safety, Jeff Bennett, Safety Director, taught an OSHA 30 class in Sioux City.  The interest and participation by Thompson Electric’s and Electric Innovations staff was tremendous.  Corey Gilmore, Cody Parameter, Casey Meinen, Devin Graves, Chad Husted, Ron Grimsley, Jerry Grimsley, Josh Grimsley, Blake Smith, Raul Diaz, Jeff Sales, Brent Stansbury Sr., Corey Floyd, Ed Anderson, Emilio Valadez and Mike Sindelar from Thompson Electric and Bob Treptow, Wade VanMeter, Joe Ortmann, Jess Meinen and Brent Corio from Electric Innovations all took and completed the OSHA 30 Training.

Last April, the Omaha office had 16 employees complete their OSHA 30 training and now, 21 from the Sioux City office have completed their training, showing the commitment by our employees to always improving their safety efforts.  This course was voluntary, taught during off hours and requires 30 hours of classroom training.

In this day and age of insurance and legal ramifications of liability, this shows a commitment to Thompson Electric’s safety program and also to themselves to help understand the workplace hazards.

Employee safety and job site safety doesn’t happen by itself, it’s a commitment from our employees that makes our work place safe and we all appreciate their efforts.

Jeff is now working with the Sioux Falls office in setting up an OSHA 30 Training class this spring.  That will be impressive as all of Thompson Electric’s offices will have provided our employees with the opportunity for OSHA 30 training within a year.

In appreciation for their commitment to taking these classes, TEC Corp gave each of the guys a new hooded sweatshirt with OSHA 30 Trained, Committed to Safety.

Congratulations to all…
