Coring & Cutting Safety
SAFETY IS OF #1 IMPORTANCE TO THE CORING & CUTTING GROUP
As true leaders in the concrete cutting industry, The Coring and Cutting Group implemented our Advanced Operator Training class. This is an informative and hands on experience two times a year at different locations of our membersr throughout the country.
We decided to utilize existing equipment within the hosting shop to introduce safety, proper operation and proper maintenance. This class covers core drilling, wall sawing, hand sawing, wire sawing and flat sawing. We utilize different machines from small hand grinders to 110 hp wire saws to everything in between. There are no preferences to manufacturers or age of the equipment. With the help of Diamond Products, ICS, Husqvarna, and Hilti being present at all the classes, we have established a non competitive, truly educational experience for all involved.
In addition to the equipment training, there is extensive classroom time with our Safety Director, Carl Jones. He supplies all of the elements and hazards of the jobsites and past history of Claims and Near Misses within the industry. He works together with OSHA to include in his class all of the elements required for OSHA 30 Certification for all eligible Operators.
This training is invaluable to our group and to the Operators whether they are life long employees or just passing through, we are assured that they have been trained and know the safest way to do their job in the future. This way everyone can go home in one piece every night.
