Training:  Training is a vital component of a good safety program.  Training partnerships and networking is a core function of the committee.  Through strategic partnering, we have been able to negotiate competitive pricing and offer more local opportunities for training to CWEA members, specific to our industry.  For training inquiries or to partner with the Safety Committee, please contact Jessica Rodriguez, our Chair at (925) 875-2395 or rodriguez@dsrsd.com.
