Description

Safe Practices for Water UtilitiesAs is the case in all industrial settings, safety is of paramount importance for drinking water utilities. This four-hour course is a concise presentation of a number of topics important for ensuring the safety of personnel working in drinking water treatment plants, distribution systems, and other facilities involved in the production of quality drinking water. Some of the topics are relevant to workers in general industrial settings (e.g., safety awareness, personal protective equipment, etc.). Other topics pertain specifically to the water industry (e.g., handling of gaseous chlorine and other water treatment chemicals, climbing elevated tanks, etc.).

The course consists of lecture, case studies, video presentations, and practical exercises dealing with nine important safety areas. Input will be encouraged from class participants and an emphasis will be placed on encouraging students to apply this information to their own utility work sites.
