Shermco Industries’ Mike Moore to Present Four Papers at the 2012 Region VI VPP Safety Conference

Mike Moore, vice president of Shermco Industries, will be presenting four papers at the 2012 Region VI VPP Safety Conference, May 15-18, at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

On Wednesday, May 16, 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, he will present “Developing an Electrical Multi-Employer Worksite Protection Program.” This talk will provide an overview of OSHAs Multi-Employer Worksite Policy CPL 02-00-124, as well as details on how to prevent regulatory multi-employer worksite issues with contractors that routinely work at your site, and those contractors who periodically work on site.

On Wednesday, 1:45 to 2:45 pm, Moore will present “Electrical Safety Urban Legends.” There are many urban myths heard day in and day out from highly experienced, but often times unqualified electrical workers. This presentation will cover the myths that seem to challenge the safety manager when it comes to protecting electrical workers.

Thursday, May 17, 1:15 to 2:15 pm, Moore will discuss “The Challenges to Finding and Retaining Qualified Electrical Workers.” This presentation will explore the aging American workforce, declining numbers of new skilled workers entering the labor pool, the changing American employment landscape, and the rising costs of keeping skilled electrical workers on staff and possible consequences and outcomes for the aging electrical power generation infrastructure.

On Thursday from 2:45 to 3:45, he will present “Safety Role Playing”, to help define the components of a well thought out safety strategy.

Recently, Moore presented to the Dallas IEEE Power and Energy Society on “Testing Methodologies for the Analysis of Serviced-Aged Medium-Voltage Shielded Cables.” He also presented “OSHA’s Multi-Employer Worksite Program and your Electrical Contractors – Do you have a plan?” to the North Texas Association of Energy Engineers at Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas.
