At Gaston Electrical, we work tirelessly to maintain and continuously improve safety practices in all aspects of our business. To support this mission, our team members receive regular training on equipment and tools. Recently, Rick Coakley – Corporate Safety Director, attended a three-day Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) training session called JLG University. The event was held at JLG’s training center in McConnellsburg, PA. As one of the largest manufacturers of boom and scissor lifts in the country, JLG University provides advanced classroom and hands-on training for safe operation of their equipment. With the training completed, Rick will include new practices into Gaston’s training curriculum – ensuring an even safer work environment for our team members and project partners going forward.
