Mississippi Construction Contractors, Stay Safe Out There!
Published on October 18, 2018 by Brenda Forton
Construction site accidents cost builders and contractors both time and money, as well as, damaging your reputation with clients and employees. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as excavation cave-ins, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, and electrocutions. OSHA safety standards are designed to reduce on-the-job injuries; health standards to limit workers’ risk of developing an occupational disease.
The Builders License Training Institute has developed a two-hour Mississippi state-approved online video course designed to help identify, reduce, and eliminate construction-related hazards. We’ll teach you to identify hazards before they impact your business.
The course is called Hazardous Work Zones: Implementing Occupational Safety II, and is offered as a 2-hour online continuing education course.
After completing this course participants will be able to:
- Name factors that pose a hazard to employees working in excavations, and identify how to reduce those hazards.
- Outline at least three procedures that must be followed in order to control and minimize on-the-job injuries.
- Recognize the role of OSHA in the workplace and describe the causes of the most common workplace injuries.
Safety should be your primary concern on the job site. The more knowledgeable you are, the safer you and your workers will be. Take the course, earn your CE credits and stay safe out there!
