Safety Training

September 20 & 21, 2018
Investing in a culture of safety can increase efficiency and profitability, while helping to insure everyone goes home safe after a hard day's work.

Connexion has made it a little easier to achieve this safety culture, with a 2-day event offering the most popular required trainings. In 2017, we added an informational session on new OSHA Standards regarding Silica Dust, and we'll be revisiting this ruling and providing updates in 2018 - as most provisions of this standard became enforceable on June 23, 2018.

New training sessions for 2018 include:

    • Grounding & Bonding Best Practices
    • Lug Crimping & Cable Terminations Workshop
    • Medium Voltage Splicing Certification
    • Circuit Testing, Tracing & Troubleshooting Workshop
