Highlights from our 2017 Safety Training & Tool Expo

Connexion has made it a little easier to achieve this safety culture, with a 2-day event offering the most popular required training classes. 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
