This past May 29, Efficiency Production Inc. and the Michigan Rural Water Association (MRWA), hosted Municipal Safety Day for Michigan communities’ Departments of Public Works (DPW) and Water Department personnel. Participating at the event were Miss Dig, Michigan CAT, Cherne Industries and Jack Doheny Company. The eighth annual event attracted 81 participants from 32 Michigan municipal communities.

“Municipal Safety Day is a unique opportunity for public works personnel to ’cross-train’ in several important areas of workplace safety,” said Mike Ross, Efficiency Production’s national training director. “Plus, they are seeing demonstrations of safety and other equipment that they may not be familiar with, or are seeing for the first time.”

The morning session included training in new utility location requirements presented by Miss Dig; and confined space training presented by Jack Doheny. The afternoon session featured field training, on:

• Excavation safety training, presented by Efficiency Production

• Backhoe operator training, presented by Michigan CAT

• Hydro-excavation demonstration, presented by Jack Doheny Company

• Test ball/pipe plug safety, presented by Cherne Industries

Municipal Safety Day also met requirements for 0.4 MDEQ Continuing Education Credits. Lunch and a raffle also were part of the day’s festivities.
