The North Dakota Safety Council is a private, non-profit organization committed to promoting safe work practices throughout the state. Serving thousands each year, their training and education programs deserved a world-class facility where NDSC staff could reach more people with a new and expanded lineup of safety courses taught in a more memorable way.
Consolidated’s team first assisted NDSC in master planning, developing a phased approach to capital improvements that would meet their budget and fundraising requirements. Phase I of the new NDSC campus includes a nearly 5,000 square foot hands-on training lab featuring a rescue tower and equipment to be utilized during high-level fall protection, confined space rescue, rope rescue and safe scaffold assembly courses. The facility also incorporates distance learning, a 30-person computer lab, equipment simulators and mobile training units. During Phase II a dirt floor arena and community room were added to train on heavy equipment and host community safety events.
