Annual Training 2024

At the end of January the Midwestern Contractors (MWC) safety Team conducted our annual training event. This week long series of classes and presentations served to act as a refresher for most, and an introduction to our safety program for new hires. 



  • HAZWOPER refresher
  • OSHA 10 & 30 renewals
  • Atmospheric monitoring/Authorized gas tester training
  • Benzene awareness
  • Respiratory protection
  • Respirator medical clearance


  • Fire prevention/ Fire Extinguisher/Fire watch
  • Hot work
  • Confined space training
  • Competent person excavation training
  • Utility damage prevention
  • CPR training


  • Aerial lift training
  • Fall protection, portable ladders, scaffolding
  • Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) training
  • Hand and power tool use and care
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) & hearing protection


  • Coating training
  • Coating documentation


  • Asbestos awareness
  • Qualified crane signal person
  • Qualified rigger training

This annual training is a very important piece of MWC's overall safety program. This training, combined with ongoing field reinforcement, safety audits, near miss and good catch reporting adds to the effectiveness of the company's safety management program. 

Keeping track of and utilizing information from the areas listed above, helps the safety team direct their emphasis on areas of weakness. For example a near miss involving rigging will trigger actions to highlight this area for all crews. That action may be a toolbox talk, additional training or a complete safety stand down, depending upon the seriousness of the near miss.

The safety of the company's work force is very important. A safe and healthy work force has the highest productivity. A big thanks to the entire safety team and our employees.
