Buckner Industrial Rigging Adds Hazwoper Training
As an NCCER Accredited Assessment and Training Center, Buckner Companies stays dedicated to improving our safety culture. In a continued effort to be the best value with the most qualified team, Buckner Industrial Rigging (BIR) expands their base of training offered to their employees. In mid-February, BIR’s Safety Representative, Shelton Hensley, completed OSHA’s Hazwoper/Hazmat “Train the Trainer” certification program. OSHA created the Hazardous Waster Operations and Emergency Response Standard (Hazwoper) program to protect employees at potentially hazardous job sites. Shelton says, “Having the ability to Hazwoper train our own work force, on our schedule, will ensure our clients that Buckner Industrial Rigging will be providing the most qualified personnel with the most complete and up-to-date training.” The training program is designed to ensure employees’ safety and health when the extensive regulations are followed correctly.
