Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Registration is now open for the OSHA 10-Hour Construction Outreach Course to be held at IAMU on January 24th & 25th.

This course will explain OSHA’s role in worker safety and health, jobsite hazard recognition, correction and prevention methods and how to read the OSHA standards. Participants will receive a completion card from the U.S. Department of Labor OSHA certifying successful completion of this OSHA 10-Hour course. 29 CFR 1926 CFR Book & course material furnished.

Topics Covered:

  • Introduction to OSHA
  • Electrical Hazards
  • Fall Protection
  • Caught-In and Struck-by Hazards
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Health Hazards in Construction

Who Should Attend:
This basic safety course is recommended for workers and supervisors, or those who have been given the task of developing and managing their employer’s safety program.

A Certificate of Attendance will be provided to attendees.

If you hire Contractors: Many cities also require their contractors to maintain a safety program to be eligible to work for them. The OSHA 10-Hour course will help those owners, managers, and employees develop a solid safety foundation at their company to hopefully avoid incidents while working for the city or utility. Hiring a contractor to perform work for the city/utility does not eliminate all liabilities to the city.

Greenfield Municipal Utilities and Central Iowa Power Cooperative Rewards Energy Efficiency Design of New Nodaway Valley Elementary

Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, December 27, 2017

L-R: Jessica Foster, GMU - Casey Berlau, NV - Crag Ford - GMU, Cheri Monahan, CIPCO - Kristofer Orth - Design Alliance, Scott Tonderum, GMU - Paul Erickson, CIPCO

 

Greenfield Municipal Utilities and Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO) today presented a check for $33,507 to Nodaway Valley School District for energy-efficient design and implementation at the new elementary school. The check represents the payback in incentives used to install energy efficient products and practices, and was presented to Nodaway Valley Superintendent Casey Berlau.

 

“In a rapidly changing energy market, implementing energy efficiency programs provide significant benefits and cost-savings,” indicated Scott Tonderum, GMU General Manager. “Additionally, geothermal provides an environmentally-friendly heating and cooling option for the benefit of the community.”

 

The elementary school building is heated and cooled with a highly-efficient 112-ton geothermal system. The kitchen includes energy-efficient equipment and LED lighting throughout. Project architect, Jerry Purdy, president and founder of Design Alliance, provided the school with energy analysis on three types of heating and cooling systems. School district leaders chose the geothermal system for its efficiency and reasonable payback period.

 

Jeremy Lang, director of the Iowa Geothermal Association, said modern geothermal systems are far and away the most superior method of saving energy when compared to “old school” boilers and a chiller/cooling tower. 

 

“Geothermal can provide heating and cooling with or without burning fossil fuels, but while fossil fuel systems are limited to efficiencies under 100 percent, geothermal systems can achieve an efficiency range of 300 to 500 percent,” Lang said. 

 

Greenfield Municipal Utilities and CIPCO offer energy-efficiency incentives for residential, commercial and agriculture projects that occur within their service territories.

 

About Greenfield Municipal Utilities

Greenfield Municipal Utilities, a member of SIMECA (Southern Iowa Municipal Electric Cooperative Association), provides electricity and water to approximately 2,000 citizens in the city of Greenfield.
