Professional Development Hours (PDHs)Participation in NAPA webinars may earn you Professional Development Hours (PDHs). PDHs are educational units used to fulfill continuing education requirements for licensure or certification. In most cases, 1 hour of participation in a webinar equals 1 PDH. Some states and certifying bodies require pre-approval of professional development hours and documentation requirements also vary, so be sure to check with your appropriate agency. You are responsible for maintaining the documentation for your PDHs. You can request a certificate of completion after you attend any of the webinars to keep for your records. 

UPCOMING WEBINARS

Complying with OSHA's Silica Rule at Asphalt Plants and During Road Construction Activities
Date: Tuesday, March 27, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speakers: Charles (Chuck) Mull, HSE Director, Kokosing Materials, Inc. and Matthew Mileski CSP, Safety Coordinator, HRI Inc.

OSHA's Silica Rule or Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) was finalized and implemented for the construction industry in 2017. The rule goes into effect in June 2018 for general industry which includes asphalt pavement mix facilities. The asphalt pavement industry has been proactive in understanding and implementing the necessary control equipment for road construction activities and has been reviewing the types of controls that may be needed at a mix facility. Learn what steps are needed to ensure compliance with the Silica Rule at asphalt mix facilities.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand what is required under OSHA's Silica PEL for both road construction activities and at an asphalt mix facility.
  • Identify what industry workplace activities have the potential for silica exposure.
  • Review how the industry is addressing identification and control of potential silica exposure.

Performance Under Pressure: Heavy Duty Pavements – Legislation
Date: Wednesday, April 4, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speakers: Jay Hansen (NAPA) and Martin Whitmer (Whitmer & Worral, LLC)

Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act is focused on Fostering Advancements in Shipping and Transportation for the Long-term Achievement of National Efficiencies (FASTLANE) by assisting states in strategically directing resources to improve system performance and efficiency in moving freight. The program is looking at designating both rural and urban critical freight corridors now called “Critical Commerce Corridors” which will include dedicated truck lanes. These freight corridors will require heavy duty pavements in good condition with smooth surfaces for maximum freight movement efficiency. This session will give more information on the legislation, and draw some lines to how that corresponds to Heavy Duty Pavements.

Key Takeaways:

  • FAST Act
  • Critical Freight Corridors

Performance Under Pressure: Heavy Duty Pavements – Design Features
Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speakers: Bill Vavrik, Vice President, Applied Research Associates

Accurate assessment of the project site conditions, loading and environmental parameters, and uses of the facility, will provide the optimal design solution for the projects pavement needs. Unknowns can lead to increased risk of failures and/or the possibility of over design leading to unnecessary increased cost of construction. The webinar will focus on how these inputs differ in significance and importance for the diverse array of heavy duty pavement facilities.

Key Takeaways:

  • Site Condition
  • Traffic/Loading
  • Environment
  • Design Life
