Qualified Worker Program (QWP)
Generally, the regulations agree that any electrical circuit or equipment that is energized with at least 50 volts of electricity has to be guarded, covered, protected, or made inaccessible to everyone except Qualified Electrical Workers. The regulations also state that any electrical testing must be performed by Qualified Workers. That means an unqualified worker cannot even verify whether a circuit his been de-energized. Even during a Lock Out/Tag Out procedure – Only Qualified Workers can verify if equipment has been de-energized.
To be a qualified worker one must possess the knowledge and skills related to the field and receive the proper safety training…
The QWP includes: Electrical Safety & the Qualified Electrical Worker; OSHA Lock Out/Tag Out; NFPA 70E (Arc Flash Safety)
March 28-29, 2019 Members $550/Non $625
Unqualified Worker Program (UWP)
Though they are called unqualified workers because they do not work directly with the voltages Qualified Workers expose themselves to, Unqualified Workers face a higher-than-normal risk of electrical accidents and need training as well. The UWP does just that!
The unqualifed workers are people such as maintenance men, machine operators, mechanics, etc. who still face the risk of electrical shock…
The UWP includes: Electrical Safety & the Qualified Worker; OSHA LOCK Out/Tag Out
March 28-29, 2019 Members $450/Non $525
The QWP and UWP are 1 day programs whose course groups comply with or exceed current OSHA standards. As a bonus, for $250 you can add training to include the OSHA 10 hour card (construction or general industry)
Sunshine Safety Council, Inc. would like to introduce you to Dohn 22+
A Glimpse of the Dohn 22+ Program
Sunshine Safety was introduced to the Dohn 22+ program by our FOA instructors, Tom and Donna Collins. If you haven’t met them yet, you are missing out! Not only are they amazing instructors (just ask the students that have attended the new IMSA/FOA CFOT programs), they are also amazing people! Beyond being FOA Instructors, running their own business (Techtricians), and helping others in their community – Tom and Donna also donate their time to the Dohn 22+ program.
Dohn’s 22+ Adult Education Program is changing lives in Cincinnati, OH. Adult students come to Dohn, the only school in Cincinnati offering this statewide program, because they dropped out of high school earlier in their lives and now want to earn their diplomas and better their lives. The 22+ Adult Education Program succeeds because teachers meet students where they are and provide personalized support to help even the most challenged student complete his or her high school studies.
During the January 2018 graduation, 168 adult students were awarded their diplomas and on May 23, 2018, an additional 130 adult students were awarded theirs. An astounding 298 total students graduated in 2018 alone. That’s an amazing number for an adult education program!
One such graduate was My’Cola Pearson.
My’Cola graduated from the Dohn 22+ program and went on to receive the Fiber Optics Association Certified Fiber Optics Technician certification from our favorite FOA Instructors, Tom and Donna Collins.
If you haven’t noticed from my complimentary writings, I think Tom and Donna are very impressive people! They are constantly helping people in one form or another and because I personally think we should all be a bit more like them, when they asked my office for help I jumped at the chance.
I’ve been asked reach out to anyone I know who can help them help My’Cola get her first big break in the field of Fiber Optics. Just so you know – Tom and Donna have so much faith in her skills that they are offering a personal letter of recommendation – that alone speaks volumes!!
Call me an eternal optimist but, I’m really hoping we can show My’Cola, Tom, and, Donna what a great place Florida can be… I’m hoping one of the hundreds of Florida companies I work with will give her a shot. If you have an opening or you know a company that is hiring – send me information so we can get this girl to work in the Sunshine State.
I have a copy of her resume and can get you the letter of recommendation. I will also be more than happy to help with any communications necessary.
