It is important that all newly hired workers (permanent or temporary), EWOCs, and recent transferees to Plant receive this training as soon as possible after being hired or transferred. Office Workers and Administrative employees are not required to attend this class, as they receive the relevant portion of this training in the Plant Ops Orientation. However, new foremen and supervisors of Trades/ AFSCME/ IUOE employees should attend to learn the safety requirements for their staff.
The class covers basic worker protection subjects that are required under government safety regulations. About 30 different subjects are covered in this training, including hazard communication, personal protective equipment, and asbestos awareness.
This orientation is scheduled approximately every six weeks.
