High-Hazard Working Groups

High Hazard Working Group Logo

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.
