Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis will visit Pueblo Community College Thursday. She'll meet with faculty and students involved in worker safety programs.
PCC has an active alliance with the department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration and has sponsored outreach sessions presented by OSHA and the Pueblo Safety and Health Council.
While at PCC, Secretary Solis will also tour the Gorsich Advanced Technology Center.
According to Gary Franchi, Public Relations Coordinator for PCC, Solis is interested in learning more about:
· Training that PCC does and the jobs it provides through a $2+ million U.S. Department of Labor grant that enabled PCC to build and equip 3 mobile learning labs and to utilize them for training throughout Colorado.
· The workforce training that PCC does for Vestas Towers
· Regional recognition that PCC received for its OSHA training programs and an OSHA grant that PCC received.
