Customized ES&H Training Program Development



Since September 2017, BGI has been updating, developing, and facilitating train the trainer sessions for Valley Metro Rail Light through the Prime Contractor Alternate Concepts, Inc (ACI). Valley Metro is the regional public transportation agency providing coordinated transit services to residents of metro Phoenix, from regional bus, light rail, and paratransit service to alternative commuter solutions. Valley Metro plans, develops, and operates the regional bus and light rail systems and alternative transportation programs for commuters, seniors, and people with disabilities.

BGI agreed to develop or augment the employee safety and health training modules to ensure compliance with applicable safety and health regulations and align with existing Valley Metro’s Safety and Health programs.  BGI collaborated with the site Safety Manager to develop a prioritized list of training modules based on review of the operations, regulations, and compliance needs. The training modules included Bloodborne Pathogens, Emergency Action Plan, Hazard Communication GHS, Hazardous Materials, Personal Protective Equipment, Walking and Working Surfaces, Exit Routes, Fire Prevention and Fire Protection, Electrical Safety, Traffic Safety, and Introduction to Ergonomics (Hand/Back Safety). Customization and development of this training program includes a train the trainer portion to allow the customer to self-perform the training.
