PLC Safety Training:

PLC Safety trainings are a benefit for PLC membership for all employees.  We encourage participation yearly to ensure a culture of safety is fostered by all of our PLC members.  The training classes are held conveniently throughout the state at the garages of a hosting PLC member.  Breakfast and lunch are served.  Topics change yearly based on the biggest risks identified by the insurance industry and topics that are requested by contractors.  Our safety training’s qualify for CLP credit for renewal.  We will notify the CLP of your participation.

 

As of January 2021, since 2011, How many people has the PLC trained at Spring Safety Trainings?

Safety, Our #1 Priority

Since the PLC of Maine started 23 years ago, there are several initiatives that have benefited the membership and the logging industry in Maine.   One initiative is the Acadia Insurance Dividend Program, which has returned over $10.5 million to PLC members since its inception in 1999.

The PLC takes the issue of safety seriously and encourages PLC members to commitment to safety, not only to reap the benefits of the Dividend Program, but to protect employees, lower costs and sustain the longevity of businesses.

The PLC is committed to the safety and well being of its membership for the very same reasons.  In the long run, if someone does not go home at night because of a life threatening injury, the risks do not outweigh the rewards.

Below you will find documents designed by the PLC to facilitate safety meetings, safety inspections, first aid procedures and many links helpful safety resources.
