Construction is a high hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities involving construction, alteration, and/or repair. Examples include residential construction, bridge erection, roadway paving, excavations, demolitions, and large-scale painting jobs. 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, electrocutions, and hazardous materials.  OSHA safety standards are designed to reduce on-the-job injuries; health standards to limit workers’ risk of developing occupational disease. This course is designed to assist those in the industry to identify, reduce, and eliminate construction-related hazards.

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.
  • Summarize “best practices” for proper handling, storage, use and disposal of hazardous materials.
  • Recognize the role of OSHA in the workplace and describe the causes of the most common workplace injuries.

This course covers:

  • Excavations
  • Electrical Safety
  • Hazard Communication
  • Tool Safety
  • Materials Handling
