Do you have employees who could become more valuable to your business by updating their health and safety leadership skills?

WECA's "Health and Safety Leadership" course, in partnership with Click Safety, has just relaunched after an update, and is available for enrollment. Your employees can gain 16 hours of California electrician Continuing Education for successful completion.

In this course, students focus on development of selected “competent person” skills, as well as expanded knowledge of NFPA 70E requirements. The term "Competent Person" is used in many OSHA standards and documents, and is defined as "one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them." This course provides students with competent person training in the areas of excavations and fall prevention.

The course also covers:
  • Demonstrating leadership basic skills
