Centennial Contractors Enterprises
Centennial is committed to improving not only the health and safety of its employees but the industry as a whole.
Over the past year, Centennial has been involved in several initiatives that positively impact the construction industry. One example is the development of safety training material regarding radio frequency and permit-required confined spaces, developed after renewing Centennial’s formal alliance with Region 10 of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Centennial developed a detailed, hands-on training session for graduating seniors from Central Washington University’s Safety and Health Management program. The training was a one-hour presentation, during which students were instructed in the principles of jobsite safety.
Following the lecture, students had the opportunity to learn hands on with the use of the “sandbox” traffic-control training model a 1:50-scale model roadway and channelizing devices kit that allowed them to create traffic-control zones to scale and solve problems in a variety of scenarios. Student feedback from these training sessions has been overwhelmingly positive and Centennial has begun to take steps to increase the versatility of this training model.
