We are pleased to offer the following presentations:
Patrick Wright of LTAP
: This session is intended for drivers of municipal vehicles. Recognizing that the cause of the majority of crashes is driver error, the course encourages the development of safe driving behaviors through an understanding of three phases of the driving task, completing a pre-trip vehicle inspection, and work site vehicle operation. The course is presented with these trainee objectives: Learn that the driving task requires a commitment to being as safe as possible; Recognize the messages being communicated through traffic control devices; Use new techniques to drive as safely as possible. After an introduction to the importance of developing safe driving behaviors, the course focuses on recognizing traffic control devices, including signs, pavement markings, temporary traffic control, and the contribution of these devices to driver expectancy.
Fall Protection by Design:
Will provide an interactive overview of fall protection regulations and the application of the rules to everyday work tasks. Persons attending the session should have a better understanding of identifying hazards and taking the appropriate steps in addressing the issues.
