Work Location / Potential Access Requirements
The HAMMER Training work scope shall be completed at the HAMMER Facility or at other Hanford Site satellite locations across the Hanford Site. The work to be completed at the HAMMER Facility will be performed in an office environment/conference room/class room/training props. When directed by the HAMMER individual identified by the BTR, courses may be conducted at satellite locations on the Hanford Site.

The Volpentest HAMMER Federal Training Center (HAMMER) is a U. S. DOE training facility specializing in hands-on training for the Hanford Site.

Hoisting and rigging work poses numerous potential hazards: falling objects and debris, and dropped loads can cause severe injury or death. An error in rigging, gear failure, or standing in the wrong place when a lift is in progress can result in a worker being struck by the load as it shifts or swings unpredictably. When mobile cranes are used, the potential hazard created by the movement of the cab and counterweight can also result in a crushing injury.

Aerial lifts have replaced ladders and scaffolding on many job sites due to their mobility and flexibility. This versatility comes at a cost as many workers are injured or killed on aerial lifts each year by their misuse. Workers are injured from falls, objects falling from lifts, tip-overs, ejections from the lift platform, structural failures, electric shock, entanglement hazards, and contact with objects.

HAMMER's Hoisting and Rigging & Aerial Lift Training introduces students to the hazards of hoisting, rigging, and aerial lifts and how to recognize potentially dangerous work areas. The goal of the programs is to ensure that Hanford workers tasked with operating cranes, forklifts, and aerial lifts, and performing rigging duties are properly trained to work safely and incompliance with the rules and regulations that govern these operations on the Hanford Site.

The program covers the operation controls, inspection, maintenance, and repair of cranes, hoists, fork trucks, slings, rigging hardware, and hoisting equipment used on the Hanford Site. The Hanford Site Hoisting and Rigging Committee implements rules, regulations, and standards for hoisting and rigging activities through DOE-RL-92-36, Hanford Site Hoisting and Rigging Manual. HAMMER's role is to ensure hoisting and rigging training incorporates these rules, regulations, and standards into the Hoisting and Rigging courses.

The Hanford site work environment includes many structures that pose the risk of falls and, as a result, Fall Protection training is essential to the safety of workers involved in our clean-up mission. Falls can occur from moveable ladders, scaffolding, fixed ladders, and elevated work platforms and work areas, e.g. roofs, elevated equipment, pipe runs, etc. Recognizing the potential fall hazards and using the proper procedures and equipment can minimize the potential risks when working in these environments.
HAMMER Fall Protection training introduces students to; potential fall hazards and how to recognize potentially dangerous work areas; the latest fall protection practices; and literally places students in the seat of the harness of the fall protection equipment. Students participate in interactive, practical exercises that are conducted in a controlled, safe environment.

Workers who will be exposed to fall hazards at the Hanford site receive applicable fall protection training as directed in the Hanford Site-wide procedure, DOE-0346, Hanford Fall Protection Program. All HAMMER Fall Protection training complies with OSHA 1926.503, ANSI Z359.2, and the Site Program.
