Calculations, pole attachment issues, safety are focus of pre-E&O seminars
Originally published February 14, 2013
The APPA Academy is offering three pre-conference seminars on Sunday, March 24, during the 2013 Engineering & Operations Technical Conference in Kissimmee, Fla. Participants in these seminars will earn professional development hours (PDHs) and continuing education units (CEUs).
"Electrical Calculations for Engineers and Technicians" will provide participants with the basic knowledge and understanding of day-to-day power system calculations and the major components of a power system (their function, control, operating characteristics and limitations).
In "Pole Attachment Issues," attendees will learn how Federal Communications Commission changes to the federal pole rules and regulations will impact public power utilities.
Participants in "Safety and the Supervisor" will learn how to affect safety positively in the workplace. Topics include:
• Creating an environment of trust where everyone can take personal responsibility for safety;
• Responsibilities of "the person in charge";
• Sharing safety leadership to create a safe team;
• Motivating employees to lead their team, accept responsibility and create accountability for safety goals; and
• Developing an action plan to create safe behavior.
