Lyles Utility Construction believes the safest employees are the best trained employees. In 2014, Lyles Utility began augmenting its already high quality safety training programs and procedures with regular classroom seminars designed and presented by industry experts to provide detailed and specialized natural gas construction training to its employees. The seminars are focused on the “how to” over subjects that relate directly to work in the natural gas industry. Recent subjects included, among other things, detailed safety training instruction on pipeline locating and hot tapping.
These classes have been well-received by employees and managers alike. Said one Lyles Utility foreman, “I love this training! The information we cover helps to keep us and our co-workers safe.” As a Lyles Utility Gas Operations Manager put it, “This type of specialized training program provides the best medium to train our construction staff to perform their jobs in a safe and efficient manner.”
