Our Mission

To provide high quality, accessible safety and  process education to Haskell employees and our sub-contractors; to promote individual development and improve the overall safety of the crafts persons on our projects. Employees who are educated in the basic process of the facilities we work in can be extra eyes and ears for our customers.

Learning the functions of some of high risk operations on our projects such as Crane Rigging and Signaling, will give our projects more people looking out for potential unsafe conditions or unsafe acts.

    Available courses

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to inform employees upon their first entering into employment, and at least annually thereafter, of: 

    • The existence, location and availability of any employee medical and exposure records
    • The person responsible for maintaining and providing access to records; and
    • Each employee’s rights of access to the records.

    The United States Department of Homeland Security defines the active shooter as "an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area"; in most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.

    This 6 minute video helps the viewer know what to do in the event of a sudden attack by a gunman while at work, at school, or in public.

    Aerial lifts have replaced ladders and scaffolding on many job sites due to their mobility and flexibility. They may be made of metal, fiberglass reinforced plastic, or other materials. They may be powered or manually operated, and are considered to be aerial lifts whether or not they can rotate around a primarily vertical axis.  Many workers are injured or killed on aerial lifts each year.

    Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when carbon monoxide builds up in your bloodstream. When too much carbon monoxide is in the air, your body replaces the oxygen in your red blood cells with carbon monoxide. This can lead to serious tissue damage, or even death.

    Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas produced by burning gasoline, wood, propane, charcoal or other fuel. Improperly ventilated appliances and engines, particularly in a tightly sealed or enclosed space, may allow carbon monoxide to accumulate to dangerous levels.

    If you think you or someone you're with may have carbon monoxide poisoning, get into fresh air and seek emergency medical care.

    Chainsaws aren't only used by loggers. In mechanical construction we use a chainsaw to cut many materials such as High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) plastic piping. Every Haskell employee who will be operating a chainsaw on the job must complete this training.
    Construction is a high hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities involving construction, alteration, and repair. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos.

    Standardized hand signals are commonly used by the crane signal person. The signal person is the only one who should give signals to the operator. The only exception is if other personnel see a hazard, they can use the emergency stop signal. When the signal person gives directions to the operator, they must be from the operator’s perspective.
    Rigging is a critical part of construction. Riggers prepare equipment, components or sections for lifting by cranes, hoists or other material handling equipment. Riggers also act as signalman. Worker safety is of utmost concern when performing rigging tasks. Improper rigging of a load or a rigging failure can expose riggers and other workers nearby to a variety of potential hazards. Riggers have been injured or killed when loads have slipped from the rigging, or when the rigging has failed. Therefore all loads must be safely rigged, including adequate welds on pad eyes prior to a lift.
    Where the employer has provided portable fire extinguishers for employee use in the workplace, training to familiarize you with the general principles of fire extinguisher use and the hazards involved with incipient stage fire fighting must be conducted annually.

    This Forklift Operator Training program, while designed for the construction industry, is based on OHSA's 29CFR 1910.178 found in the general industry regulations. OSHA references this standard for Powered Industrial Trucks in the 29CFR 1926 construction industry regulations. During the training video you will see information on certain forklifts which are used in construction, warehouse and manufacturing settings. This is necessary to cover the standard appropriately.

    This is required training for all new employees working at the Haskell Bellingham facility fabrication shops.

    This is the basic safety training for Managers at Haskell Corporation. Haskell Managers are often in the field at construction sites and can encounter the same hazards as those directly engaged in project work tasks. The lessons included in the Haskell Manager Safety course provide the basics for awareness level training.

    It is important that everyone understand what a SWPPP is. Everyone's understanding is vital to staying in compliance with our storm-water permit. We discuss what it stands for, what it is, and why our facility needs one.

    A healthy body temperature is maintained by the nervous system. As the body temperature increases, the body tries to maintain its normal temperature by transferring heat. Sweating and blood flow to the skin (thermoregulation) help us keep our bodies cool. A heat-related illness occurs when our bodies can no longer transfer enough heat to keep us cool.

    Hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] is one of the valence states (+6) of the element chromium. It is usually produced by an industrial process. Cr(VI) is known to cause cancer. In addition, it targets the respiratory system, kidneys, liver, skin and eyes. Chromium metal is added to alloy steel to increase hardenability and corrosion resistance. A major source of worker exposure to Cr(VI) occurs during "hot work" such as welding on stainless steel and other alloy steels containing chromium metal.

    The basics of line breaking.

    This course covers lockout tagout procedures and safety rules for operating and working around the Peddinghaus Avenger machine in the Haskell Corporation structural fabrication shop.

    Haskell Corporation has extensive experience in the energy market, with a specific focus on power generation construction across the western US. We have taken the lead role in a broad portfolio of projects that include co-generation, simple cycle turbine, combined cycle turbine, IC engine and CHPP type power plants.

    Our employees understanding of the concepts and processes of these facilities helps provide extra safety and quality assurance to our customers.

    This is a historic video produced in the 1950's by Shell Oil that clearly and simply explains how crude oil is transformed in the refining process. Keep in mind that oil refineries use many and varied process today that aren't covered in this video. This course is designed to give construction workers a basic understanding of the complex facilities they often work in. It will hopefully help you to recognize potential upsets in the processes and give you a tool in helping to keep them safe.

    Preventing Workplace Harassment
    Workplace Bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators. It is abusive conduct that is :

    Threatening, humiliating, intimidating, or; Work interference such as sabotage which prevents work from getting done, or; Verbal abuse
