That 10% you learned that day might save your buttocks.:thumbsup:Yea, it can be mind numbing but I find a lot of training can be that way. Most of the time you even know 90% of what's being taught and it can seem like a waste of time... but those few things you learn can save your life or someone elses.
Safety training is essential! I once saved a fellow tech from having whole face burned off when he started to open an access cover on a 350,000,000 BTUH gas fired hot water boiler while it was firing! It could have been a catastropy had I not seen him going for it, before it was too late!
Here in mass alot of our gc's require it as well and my company paid for our training:thumbsup:My local has a requirement that eveyone has the OSHA 10 cert. and many guys myself included have taken the OSHA 30. Some of the GCs require that anyone working on their site has to sit through their Safety class and watch a series of videos depending on the trade they are subbing.
