Our clients count on us for flawless uninterruptible power supply (UPS) service in essential facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada – data centers, hospitals, government operations, military buildings and more. We employ highly experienced (7+ years) field service engineers (FSEs) to ensure this quality, but there’s another key aspect of our commitment to exceptional uninterruptible power supply service: advanced safety training. We go above and beyond to equip our engineers with the knowledge, practice and skills they need to prevent (or contain) any risk.
At DC Group, safety training begins in our state-of-the-art training facility in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The structured training program starts when FSEs join the company and continues with mandatory yearly refresher courses. This includes 40-50 hours per year dedicated to reviewing essential safety procedures, protocols and any updated information. Additionally, DC Group keeps FSEs updated with required monthly FSE conference calls dedicated specifically to safety.
The DC Group training program covers every aspect of data center safety required in North America, including additional regulations needed in California and Canada. The program consists of 37 different modules, and topics range from the very basics (basic safety and CPR) to OSHA-10, U.S. Fall Protection & Fire Prevention Plans, Electrical Hazard (equivalent to U.S. NFPA-70E), Lockout/Tagout Procedures, Ladder Safety, Fall Protection, Job Hazard Analysis and more (see a full list below).
DC Group gives our power pros the training to meet and exceed safety protocols in data centers and other essential facilities. Our FSEs are ready to service your UPS equipment wherever they’re needed, 24/7 and 365 days a year!
