As we welcome in a new year, 乐博最新 takes this opportunity to look back on 2020 in this Annual Report. There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic affected us all – how we live, how we work and how we interact with each other.  这很困难, especially not being able to collaborate with our members in person and to share our time together at association events.  然而, 正如这份2020年乐博最新所显示的那样, the Association was able to work within the new parameters caused by the pandemic, to continue to provide exceptional service to our members.  We look forward with optimism that this new year will bring back some normalcy to our industry and in our daily lives.  一如既往地, we thank our members for their commitment to the betterment of the union heavy and highway construction industry in western 宾西法尼亚.”

The new training tool was developed in order to help companies to comply with new and changing training requirements. Developed to adhere to social distancing guidelines, this online tool educates employees about the facts of the COVID-19 pandemic and how they can protect themselves and those around them.

The training tool has four short quizzes and will generate a certificate.  The training can be utilized by contractors to comply with PennDOT requirements, which requires a “process to inform and educate all employees of information contained in the Supplemental COVID-19 安全 Plan prior to restart.”  This digital tool allows companies to comply with social distancing recommendations while still completing the required orientation training for their workforce to return to work.

The COVID-19大流行应对培训工具 was developed by Simcoach Games for Local 66 of the International Union of Operating Engineers, the Western 宾西法尼亚 Operating Engineers Joint Apprenticeship & Training Program, and the Constructors Association of Western 宾西法尼亚.

To date, approximately 964 individuals have received certification via this training tool.
