Electric Conduit Construction is certified to teach OSHA 10 and 30 courses. Most of our workforce has OSHA 10 and all foremen have OSHA 10 training. Our safety director has OSHA 500. This course is designed for those who are interested in teaching OSHA’s 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety and health outreach classes to employees and other interested groups. Special emphasis is placed on those topics that are required in the 10-hour and 30-hour classes as well as on those that are the most hazardous in the construction industry. Participants learn effective instructional approaches, adult learning principles, and training techniques. Participants learn to clearly identify, define, and explain construction industry hazards and acceptable corrective measures as they teach 10-hour and 30-hour construction outreach courses. This course authorizes the student to become a trainer in the Outreach Program and to conduct both 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety and health courses, and to issue student completion cards to participants.
Many products are used to build energy infrastructure. These products include poles, street fixtures, fittings, cable, fiber optic cable, conduit, high voltage cable and fittings, electrical and instrumentation components, switchgear, concrete, pipe supports, etc. Different types of qualifications are required for their installation. In some cases the skills learned by tradesmen as they work towards journeymen status are more than sufficient, e.g. NCSCB certified electricians can splice power cables. Properly trained fiber splicers can do emergency call out work. Finally some manufacturers offer training on their products. ECC provides this type of training to our employees. It is one step in our quality assurance process to be certain that every component in a fiber network or distribution circuit is installed correctly.
Electric Conduit Construction submits between 90,000 and 110,000 dig tickets per year. Many of these tickets are for directional drills. Our Utility Damage Prevention Policy and the training built around it has allowed us to avoid utility strikes. We have won awards for our performance, by being named Contractor of the Year by the Greater Chicago Damage Prevention Council.
This exceptional performance is made possible by rigorous training and extreme attention to detail when planning and executing a drill. This all part of the qualification process that sets Electric Conduit Construction apart in the utility industry.
