It will be formatted to a 1.5- to 3-hour shotcrete-specific session focusing on the obvious and hidden hazards of both wet- and dry-mix shotcreting. Once completed, this program will be an important educational tool for member companies as well as a potential education component to the current ASA-sponsored ACI Nozzleman Certification education sessions. Adequate shotcrete specific safety training is important to all shotcrete workers however, Nozzlemen-in-Training (NIT) are often at the greatest risk of injury due to their lack of experience in holding and manipulating the nozzle in a variety of applications. Only a minimum of 25 hours of hands-on nozzling experience is required to qualify a participant to take the ACI Nozzleman Certification testing as a NIT. Thus, the NITs may particularly benefit from a comprehensive shotcrete-specific safety training prior to gaining the additional hours on the nozzle to reach the 500-hour minimum required for full certification. The best time to prevent an accident is before one occurs. It is our goal to dramatically increase the shotcrete safety resources available for all workers through ASA.
