A much loved program from our history is being revamped!
The mission of the Safety Scout program is to recognize the leaders from our field crews and to provide them with safety training that will allow them to be an immediate resource of information for their crew members. Some of the training that has already been scheduled includes:
- OSHA 30-hour
- Competent Person Training for:
- Fall Protection
- Confined Space
- FA/CPR/AED Training
Another mission of the Safety Scout program is to act as one of the members of the Safety Committee. As a member of the Safety Committee the Safety Scout will have the responsibility to bring safety issues to the attention of the Safety Committee. Additionally, once a solution has been found, it will be the mission of the Safety Scouts to help implement the corrective actions in the field.
The appointment to the Safety Scout program is for one year. At the end of the year a new group of Safety Scouts will be appointed.
El Paso kicked off their inaugural meeting on January 9th of this year.
It is our plan to implement the Safety Scout Program in the Austin and San Antonio Infrastructure arenas starting late summer or early fall of 2018.
What about the Residential and Commercial Divisions?
We are open to ideas on how this program would be useful and successful in the Residential and Commercial Divisions. If you are interested in kicking off a similar program on one of your projects, contact Renee to discuss the details.
