    Alliance Activity

    The foundation of the Alliance is OSHA’s participation in training sessions and the OSHA 10 & 30 hour programs established by Local 150. Alliance activities also included Local 150 providing HAZWOPER and/or HAZWOPER Refresher courses to OSHA personnel. Local 150 also works with the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) on conducting the Cranes & Rigging (#2050), Cranes and Materials Handling for General Industry (#2080), Trenching and Shoring (#3010) and Concrete Forms & Shoring (#3030) courses. These courses are held at the ASIP training facility in Wilmington, IL. In addition, Local 150 conducted crane courses for Region IV.

    Participation in the OSHA 10/30 hour courses were as follows:

    The sessions marked with an “*” notes OSHA 10 Hour courses offered through Local 150 for High School teachers specializing in vocational programs and students in these programs. This represented a very unique opportunity for educators and students to obtain an OSHA 10-Hour card and for OSHA to interact with this audience.

    The sessions marked with an “**” were OSHA 30 Hour courses.

    Each session included a Q / A session between Local 150 attendees and OSHA personnel.

    Region V employees attended 40 hour HAZWOPER training courses and HAZWOPER refresher courses to satisfy their annual refresher training requirement.

    Region V employees attended a Roadway Safety Train-the-Trainer course.

    Local 150 worked with the Regional Office and conducted a series of Crane Training courses for Region V employees.

    As indicated in prior evaluations of this Alliance, the value of this type of cooperative action, especially with the limited availability of these resources to OSHA, can not be overstated.

    Local 150 conducted the following training courses for OTI:

    Alliance Products

    Training materials used in 2015 included the handouts for the OSHA 10 Hour, OSHA 30 Hour, HAZWOPER and HAZWOPER refresher courses reference above. These materials were assembled by Local 150 and OSHA especially for these training sessions. Previous training products developed through the Alliance include the Power Point and webinar material used in the Quick Coupler training and the material provided during the Tower Crane training.

  7. Results

  8. This Alliance has been very successful in continuing the strong relationship between OSHA and Local 150. This Alliance should be considered a major success, and the cooperation of Local 150 should be commended.

  9. Upcoming Milestones

  10. Local 150 Apprenticeship and Skill Improvement Program (ASIP) will continue to provide HAZWOPER Refresher Training for OSHA personnel, as well as work with the OSHA Training Institute on Crane Courses. OSHA will provide speakers for the OSHA 10 and 30 hour courses.

    OSHA and ASIP will meet early in Fiscal Year 2016 to discuss future products that may be developed as part of the Alliance, as well as training sessions that will be conducted in FY16.
