Contractor Training

Environmental Health and Engineering, Inc. (EH&E), trusted third-party health and safety consulting firm, has developed enhanced COVID-19 health and safety guidelines for the weatherization of 1-4 family residential buildings. The Massachusetts Program Administrators are considering these guidelines as minimum requirements to resume on-premise work of this nature. All contracted vendors and trade allies will be required to demonstrate knowledge of and compliance with these guidelines before being authorized to resume any on-premise work of this nature.

Below are instructions to access the self-serve training module you can use to train your crews on these enhanced guidelines. Please note that receiving certification in these guidelines alone does not grant permission to resume on-premise work. Permission to resume on-premise work must be granted by the Program Administrators.

1. Navigate to https://newenglandprograms.clearesult.com/

2. Select Create an Account
