Deer Park, NY Long Island electrical contracting firm, Roland's Electric, Inc. has completed  specialty training offered in-house to their electricians on staff, the OSHA 7600 - Disaster Site Worker course.  Roland's Electric steps in and provides emergency electrical services in situations when natural or man-made situations and disasters have occurred.  OSHA 7600 ensures disaster site worker safety and health through training as there can be exceptional challenges to the safety and health to workers at disaster sites. There are distinct differences between issues faced at regular construction and demolition sites in a regular work week and those at disaster sites - where workers may confront a staggering number of unforeseen hazards, risks and emergencies.  

Roland's Electric is regarded for their roster of in-house training courses. Roland’s electricians also have received training and certifications in OSHA 10, OSHA 30, 70E Qualified & Competent, Confined Spaces, CPR/First Aid, Fall Arrest and many others under the guidance and instruction of the company’s vice president and safety director, Justin Gallo. The OSHA 7600 course is voluntary for disaster site workers, but one Gallo has long been interested in teaching in-house. Recipients received an official OSHA Completion Card. 

The goal of OSHA’s 15-hour Disaster Site Worker course is to provide disaster site workers an awareness of the safety and health hazards they may encounter as well as of the importance of respiratory and other personal protective equipment and proper decontamination procedures that may be used to mitigate the hazards.  

Participants will support the use of an Incident Command System (ICS) through the safe performance of their job responsibilities. They will be able to show awareness of effects of traumatic incident stress that can result from working conditions and measures to reduce this stress.  

Of primary importance is the participant’s ability to perform the following specific tasks correctly:  a) inspection of an air-purifying respirator; b) donning and doffing an air-purifying respirator; and c) respirator user seal check.
