Training Work Group

You are here

Collaborative Training Work Group: In a teamed effort, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Training Center (NTC), the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Volpentest HAMMER Training and Education Center (HAMMER), Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG), and labor unions work to identify and address worker health, safety and security training improvement needs across the DOE Complex. The Work Group has served to initiate dialogue across the Complex to foster discussion and ideas for implementation of integrated safety and health training that could minimize redundancy and enhance the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of DOE worker training. Worker training reciprocity, portability and standardization are focal areas of interest.



The Training Work Group fosters improvements in the quality, efficacy, and delivery of DOE safety training, and realizes significant efficiencies by minimizing redundancies across the DOE Complex. The Work Group provides a collaborative opportunity for DOE to gain insights from operating contractors, the contractor work force and their representatives, and to combine the best wisdom to assure that the most efficient and effective worker health and safety program expectations, approaches and processes are in place and are well communicated.
