How do I get an employee approved to go to work at an ECCS site?
First, you have to be an authorized contractor. If you’re not, click on “Become an Authorized Contractor” to get registered. After that, you’ll click on “Authorized Contractor Login” on the ECCS homepage. After logging in, click “Upload Employee Information” and follow the form. Other steps to keep in mind:
- You need to review employee requirements to ensure your employees are in compliance.
- Once employees have received their OSHA safety training, their lab-certified drug test or their background check (if working at DGC), then upload their training dates into the online form in Central Control under “Upload Employee Training”.
What trainings are approved for my employees?
You may take an OSHA 10- or 30-hour or the ECCS Refresher from any provider who is a qualified trainer. Click here to view a list of approved trainings.
