Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust

Aerogenerador

En un esfuerzo por proporcionar a los miembros un entrenamiento justo a tiempo que cumpla con las exigencias de un mercado de aerogeneradores cada vez mayor, IMPACT estableció una colaboración con Tuttle Francis Technology Center (FTTC) en Oklahoma City. FTTC es miembro del Wind Energy Training Consortium (WETC). El WETC es un grupo de instituciones de entrenamiento reconocido por la American Wind Energy Association por su promoción del entrenamiento de habilidades esenciales para los técnicos de aerogeneradores.

El entrenamiento se centra en dos áreas principales, el rescate de la torre y el entrenamiento sobre el par de fuerzas y la tensión. El curso de rescate de la torre se concentra en las diferentes formas de protección contra caídas, técnicas de rescate y evacuación y tipos de equipos. Los participantes también aprenden el uso, cuidado y mantenimiento correcto de los equipos de seguridad en las alturas que se utiliza en el lugar de trabajo de la energía eólica. El curso sobre Torque y Tensión destaca elementos básicos sobre fijación y seguridad, par de fuerzas mecánico, par de fuerzas electrónico y par de fuerzas hidráulico. Esta parte del entrenamiento provee al participante una cantidad tremenda de aprendizaje y aplicación prácticos.

Los participantes reciben certificaciones reconocidas nacionalmente de tres líderes en la industria de aerogeneradores - Capitol Safety, Snap-On, y HYTORC, una vez terminado el entrenamiento.

In late February of 2016, the Iron Workers and their labor-management arm, the Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust (IMPACT), will gather to talk with labor representatives, members, contractors and owners about safety, business growth and the unmatched quality of the Iron Workers across three days in sunny Florida, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.

The North American Iron Workers/ IMPACT Labor-Management Conference is IMPACT’s grand showcase, where ironworkers and their contractors exhibit their expertise—unparalleled safety, unrivaled quality and stellar productivity—to construction industry leaders. IMPACT is geared toward building bridges between ironworkers, contractors and owners.

“We value safety in apprenticeship and training—our first priority is to ensure every ironworker goes home safe at the end of the day. That’s why we honor the safest projects in the industry and make a point to focus on safety every step of the way,” says Iron Workers General President Eric Dean. “We hold this conference to showcase our commitment to safety and excellence.”

The year’s top Iron Workers projects will be honored at the conference. Contractor-submitted projects in five categories (Bridge/Structural, Architectural/Ornamental, Reinforcing, Industrial/Rigging/Machinery Moving and Fabrication), will be judged on their innovation and commitment to safety on the job.

A buffet of breakout and training sessions aimed at contractors and ironworkers will cover topics ranging from work opportunities in the reinforcing industry to crafting locals’ images through business strategies and tactics associated with getting contractors more work. With the valuable takeaways from these sessions, ironworkers and contractors can be at the forefront of innovation in the industry.

“Our strength as an organization lies in the incredible commitment to innovation by our board of trustees, staff and partners,” said William Brown, CEO of Ben Hur Construction Company and management co-chair for IMPACT. “The level of interest we’ve seen in IMPACT this year is truly a testament to the value of our programs.”

 “This conference opens the eyes of ironworkers, contractors and owners to the good work we do, especially in the way of safety and training programs for our members and contractors” says Kevin Hilton, IMPACT’s CEO.
