Dear Teamsters' Sisters and Brothers;
General Teamsters Local Union No. 50 is pleased to announce upcoming training that has been scheduled for our members to fulfill certification required to work within the industry. Participation in all training classes is a MUST in order for Teamsters to continue to offer "free" classes to our members. Training classes for the following starting at 8am sharp:
Saturday, March 19, 2016 HAZWOPER Training-8 hr refresher Belleville
Sunday, March 20, 2016 Forklift Training Belleville
Please RSVP to the Belleville office: 618/233-0313 as soon as possible due to ONLY 20 spots PER DAY available.
HAZWOPER is designed for workers who are involved in clean-up operations, voluntary clean-up operations, emergency response operations, and storage, disposal, or treatment of hazardous substances or uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Workers must have 40 hours of initial training and at least three days of supervised field experience before they are allowed to enter the site required by OSHA.
Operating a FORKLIFT is involved in the majority of warehouse/construction jobs which requires forklift certification as required by OSHA. If an employee is not correctly trained and certified on how to use a forklift, their incompetence could lead to serious material damage, personal injury, or even death in the workplace.
REMEMBER--without certification, the Employer has the right to send you back to the hall and reject you as an employee. Employers are held to the highest standards when bidding projects for Federal and State.
Please feel free to contact me at (618) 233-0313 between the hours of 8:00am and 4:30pm Monday through Friday if additional information is needed.
Scott Alexander, President
General Teamsters, Automotive, Petroleum and Allied Trades
