It's is our first core value and it is the first part of our mission statement. In addition to OSHA training, everyone at the utility is trained in CPR and First Aid so that we can be prepared to respond in an emergency at work, at home, or in the community.

You'll see several of our safety videos a little later, but for now here's the information you need to launch your OSHA training:

Cybersecurity awareness training is required for all employees of the District at the time of hire and annually in following years.  The training assigned to you will help to prevent incidents that may cause harm to the District’s computer systems, customers, and employees.  Currently, the training is provided by Inspired eLearning through online courses. An email is sent to you from the company that provides the courses you are enrolled in and your login information. Launch the online training here.
