Check Out MRCA’s New Training Program!

MRCA New Training Program
January 15, 2022 at 3:00 p.m.

By Evelyn Witterholt, RCS Reporter. 

MRCA is now offering a new safety training programs for roof system installers and welders. 

Staying safe on the job is of the utmost importance for roofing contractors, so it’s always good to brush up on the latest safe practices. The Midwest Roofing Contractors Association (MRCA) is proud to announce a new training program for roof system installers: the Hot Air and Induction Welding Safety Training (HAWT)® program for roof system installers. 

Hot Air and Induction Welding Safety Training (HAWT) 

The HAWT program educates participants on recognizing and controlling hazards associated with using electrical generators and hot air/induction welders. The program is taught by experienced instructors that will make sure crew members are “Trained to a Higher Standard.” 

The MRCA Hot Air and Induction Welding Safety Committee requires that workers using welding equipment understand basic OSHA requirements such as: personal protective equipment, hazardous materials, fire prevention and fall prevention. Workers also must understand safety requirements for electrical, generator and welding safety. 

A portion of the program is dedicated to reviewing these OSHA requirements to refresh participants who have already been trained on this subject. It also introduces these subjects to people who have not learned about the requirements. 

This training program offers safety instructions specifically to roof workers. The “Authorized User” training addresses safety requirements for roof system installers on how to perform their job safely.  

Every person who takes part in the program is required to take a written exam and hands-on review test to pass. They must show that they understand how to apply Hazard Controls when using certain equipment. 

Safety is vitally important in the roofing industry, so it’s worth it to spend time brushing up on your knowledge of safe practices with these in-depth courses. 

Find more information about the courses MRCA offers here.
