"I have had the privilege of recently attending two training sessions given by Mike Colestock. I found him to be well-organized and well-informed, with a pleasant sense of humor. I found myself listening intently rather than looking at my watch. I look forward to future training sessions offered by Mike."
Alan Michaels, CSP of PCL Construction Services

Our New Mobile Safety Trailer Improves Hands-On Training

If you haven’t seen it yet – you probably will, because it’s hard to miss. Customized Training Services has rolled out a new mobile safety trailer. The re-purposed 22-foot trailer replaces an earlier non-mobile unit which was not versatile enough to meet all the training demands for CTS clients and customers. “We had a trailer for confined space training, however we felt we needed a better tool for doing hands-on training for a number of different subjects like confined space, HazMat, trenching, and fire extinguisher ” said Erik Gohl, CTS Industry Safety Coordinator.

The new safety trailer, designed by Erik and John, became a reality when CTS purchased a trailer from a construction company with National PETE dollars. Configured for multiple uses, the trailer supports a wide variety of training such as Confined Space Entry & Rescue, Trenching, Fall Protection, HazMat Responder, Incident Command, Lockout/Tagout, Fire Extinguisher and Fire Brigade training.

“Our training takes us off-campus, to an employer’s site, and we needed a tool that could better meet the training goals.” said John Lindstrom, Adjunct Instructor for CTS Industrial Safety Training,“ In the past, we have been limited as to what we could do—because we could only use what the employer had on hand at their site. Now we can use the HTC safety trailer – and have maximum control over the training.”

After the trailer was purchased, Erik looked to HTC faculty and students to bring his vision to life – “The HTC welding instructors helped with the deck, ladder and vertical con?ned space hatch.” beamed Erik, “and HTC auto body students painted the trailer from white to black”. For the safety trailer wrap, Erik worked closely with Laura Holicky, an HTC web design student, to create a memorable and impactful graphic design.

“The trailer looks even better than I imagined “ Erik continued “not only does it increase our training options, but it’s also a 22-foot rolling billboard for HTC and Customized Safety Training.”

Since it’s completion in May, the new safety trailer has been on the move and used for con?ned space training in Bismarck, Plymouth, and Detroit Lakes. In June it was used for Confined Space Training at the Minneapolis airport and City of Minneapolis.

The new 22-foot HTC Safety Trailer is sure to get attention wherever it goes. Asked what did he think the first time he saw the finished trailer? Erik enthusiastically replies “Ka-Pow!”
