Description

SEDA-COG has partnered with PennDOT to provide municipal officials with free training through the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP).  Upcoming courses include the following:
 
Equipment & Worker Safety
Berwick Borough Building, Berwick
 
This course provides a basic understanding of common safety factors and practices associated with public works road maintenance operations. Specific operations discussed include trench excavation, crack sealing with hot asphalt, mowing and chain saw use, as well as winter maintenance. It provides an overview of why accidents happen and how to protect personnel through the use of personal protective equipment. Work place awareness is stressed with emphasis on chemical safety, environmental hazards and vehicle and equipment safety issues. The importance of having a formal safety program in place and how to establish an effective program is discussed.
 
The intended audience includes individuals who are performing maintenance, construction, or traffic control on municipal roadways including: roadmasters, crew foremen, equipment operators and laborers. Others who would benefit from this course include: municipal managers and elected officials to understand the importance and for budgeting purposes.
