PRIMCO SAFETY MANUEL
IN HOUSE TRAINING
New hires with limited or no tool or construction experience attend classroom and practical tool training sessions in our Corporate Training Center. The knowledge and experience gained through the tool school allows employees to operate tools effectively and safely when they enter the job site. Onsite training continues this process.
From skid steers to cranes, the equipment operation training begins in the classroom and continues at our practical training pit. New operators learn the safe operation of equipment with practical training and practice away from the job site. This method of training allows the operator to continue the onsite training with confidence while performing work on the job site.
Primco utilizes a state of the art tiered seating 110 person training center. The area is large enough to bring equipment into the facility for training in the winter. It also has 2 each 85” monitors for presentations along with a 110” projection screen. The training center can be used for large company meeting or small groups going over specific training needs.
