HQ Safety and Occupational Health Office has created five High Hazard Working Groups (HHWG).
1) ARC FLASH / HAZARDOUS ENERGY CONTROL,
2) FALL PROTECTION,
3) LOAD HANDLING EQUIPMENT,
4) OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH, and
5) UNDERWATER DIVING
The HHWGs are considered high-hazards because an incident or accident occurring in one of these areas typically results in a fatality, a high severity injury or high property damage loss. Each HHWG is composed of in-house subject matter expertise across the Enterprise. The intent of the HHWGs are to provide an overview of the HHWG’s upcoming events, short summaries of interest / emphasis areas / lessons learned and keep you abreast of changing requirements that directly impact USACE field environments.
