Overhead and underground power lines run throughout Valley neighborhoods, bringing electricity to homes and businesses. Workers need to be aware of these facilities and understand how to avoid the potential hazards they pose.

To help you work safely, SRP invites you to a free workshop for anyone who works in landscaping, tree trimming, excavating, roofing, HVAC, painting or uses scaffolding on the job. It includes lunch and a chance to win raffle prizes.

This no-cost workshop will be held Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, at the PERA Club in Tempe. Participants must be 18 or older, and seating is limited to the first 400 people who register. Registration is available for all your current employees (no limit).

Presentations and materials will be available in English and Spanish. Workshop participants can receive CEUs (A/U/T/M) from the International Society of Arboriculture.

Headsets will be provided to workshop participants who prefer the presentation in Spanish. Parking is limited, please carpool if possible.
