OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 Training Certifications Critical at LAX

With more than $20 million in project backlog just at LAX, this week’s Field Leaders Roundtable conference call provided an opportunity to remind our field teams the importance of completing required OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 safety certification training to be eligible to work at LAX.

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) requires all field supervisors to have OSHA 30 and all field team members to have OSHA 10 certification. Most, if not all, Xcel Mechanical Foremen have completed OSHA 30 training, said Jason Gordon, VP of Operations. Those who haven’t should make it a priority. Also, Foremen “need to deliver” the message to their teams the importance of completing OSHA 10 training.

“The bottom line is we have tens of thousands of man-hours in the books at LAX, and we want everyone to be available to work on these jobs,” he said. “Plus, we’re not done pursuing new work there.”

Gordon said he expects much of the work at LAX to take place during the third and fourth quarters of this year, which begins in about eight weeks from now.
