Professional Sawing & Drilling
New Hire Orientation
This video is not designed as your entire training procedure, but as an introduction to your 1st day as an employee of a professional concrete cutting company.
In addition to completing your papers of employment, you may be requested to go to a local occupational clinic today. The clinic will perform required medical exams including the DOT medical exam, an HPE(Human Performance Evaluation), as well as a respiratory and hearing exam.
The testing will vary by location.
Based on scheduling of the appointment this time will vary but will be completed before your first day in the field.
Your 1st day will begin with the completion of the necessary forms of employment. Although the forms may vary from one company to another, all forms must be completed within 3 days of employment.
The purpose of the plan is to eliminate or minimize hazards to employees in the event of a fire or other emergency
Confined SpaceA confined space is defined as a space that is large enough that an employee can bodily enter and perform the assigned work, but has limited or restricted means for entry or exit and is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Some of our jobs are considered confined spaces such as silos, vaults and man hole boxes.
Ladder SafetyWorking off of a ladder is not the preferred method in sawing & drilling. However from time to time you may have to work off of a ladder. The ladder is to be placed next to the wall with at least 3 feet above the top surface, the ladder must be tied off and the ladder must also be on secured footing. All equipment should be pulled up to the working location with the use of a rope. A three point contact with the ladder is required by OSHA.
Core drilling is one of the most basic jobs that we will do on a daily basis. The standard size of core drilling is 1” to 12”. Core drilling can be done with electric or hydraulic power. The drills can be hand held or mounted by anchors. Other forms of drilling can be done based on the job demand.
When operating fuel powered equipment indoors, proper ventilation is required before cutting begins.
