Training Evaluation Checklist

for
Contractors, Outside Service, and other non-Resolute Forest Products Coosa Operations Personnel

This checklist is intended to verify prior Electrical Safety training for each individual employed by outside contractors, outside services vendors, and any other Non-Resolute Forest Products Coosa Pines Operations personnel who will be performing work at the Coosa Pines Operatons site that exposes, or could expose them to electrical hazards. Because of the variety of hazards, job tasks, experience, and expertise of individuals exposed to electrical hazards, training required for a specific individual to be considered Qualified for specific tasks will vary.

It is possible, and in fact likely that individuals trained and considered Qualified for some tasks are Unqualified for others. Training given to your employees shall be specific to the job tasks and the electrical hazards present. Multiple individuals from the same organization having the same training can be indicated by attaching a listing of the names, and by supplying all required documentation for each individual as listed in "B) Qualifications and Documentaton" below.

"Resolute Forest Products is not hereby assuming the liability for ensuring the contractor's compliance with the NFPA 70-E standards, nor for the contractor's employee's actions, negligence, or omissions.
