A special thanks to Mr.Richard Stempniak who guided me throughout this course, he explained all safety procedures followed in utility industry, the main word which i take away from this course is start a day with SAFETY FIRST, which will resolve all kinds of problem, prevention is better than curing. I thanks once again for giving core concept about safety.

Un buen curso dado el contenido del mismo, donde se muestra un amplio escenario de los problemas de seguridad y las regulaciones y criterios para determinar los posibles riesgos en el lugar de trabajo, y como estos no solo afectan al empleado sino a toda la comunidad que se encuentra a su alrededor. Un curso bastante recomendado.
