Walking and Working Surfaces in Construction Environments

20% of disabling occupational injuries are from slips, trips and falls with thousands of fatalities every year. Walking and Working Surfaces in Construction Environments training identifies the hazards of different surfaces and provides the practical information and specific procedures employees need to help prevent slips, trips and falls on the job. It’s easy to take the surfaces we walk and work on for granted, but that would be a big mistake. We depend on these surfaces to provide the support we need to position ourselves properly, use our muscles efficiently, keep our balance and do our work safely.

Topics covered in this program: Include the fundamentals of safe surfaces, walkways and floors, stairs and fixed ladders, scaffolding and more.


Trenching & Shoring Safety in Construction Environments

Construction workers chances of getting killed on the job doubles when they’re working in a trench. Trenching & Shoring Safety in Construction Environments helps facilities comply with OSHA’s regulations and safe work practices that can prevent accidents from occurring. An average of two employees are killed every month when the trench they’re working in collapses on them. Many of these deaths and thousands of injuries can be prevented when employees understand the hazards that can be encountered in trenching work.

Topics covered in this program: Include the hazards of trenching; the competent person and worksite inspection; soil types and protective systems; ongoing inspection and testing; access, egress, setback and equipment, working defensively and more.


Suspended Scaffolding Safety in Construction Environments

10,000 scaffold related injuries reported each year Suspended Scaffolding Safety in Construction Environments helps facilities comply with OSHA’s Scaffolding regulation (29 CFR Part 1904). Whenever a worker leaves the ground, the risk of an accident occurring increases dramatically. With more than 10,000 scaffold related injuries reported each year, OSHA has mandated that workers be trained on how to safely erect and use these work platforms. The course helps employees understand the dangers of working with scaffolds, and how these risks can be minimized by knowing the correct ways to erect, maintain and use scaffolding equipment.

Topics covered in this program: Include responsibilities of a scaffold expert, platform hazards, the danger of power lines, personal fall arrest systems, guarding against falling objects, and more.


Struck-By Hazards in Construction Environments

Struck-By Hazards in Construction Environments provides the information employees need to recognize the struck-by hazards that are associated with construction tasks and take steps to avoid them before accidents happen. Struck-by accidents occur when a person is hit by a moving object. On construction sites this can include being hit on the head by a falling hammer, hit by particles being thrown from a grinder, hit by a truck that’s backing up, or hit by a load of wallboard that’s being hoisted. Struck-by accidents are one of the four top causes of fatalities in construction work, and can result in serious injuries as well. But they don’t have to happen.

Topics covered in this program: Include personal protective equipment; traffic safety; heavy equipment; masonry walls, overhead work and building materials, and more.


Safety Orientation in Construction Environments

Safety Orientation in Construction Environments addresses two of the most prominent safety issues confronting employers today, that of developing a good safety attitude in their employees…as well as providing introductory safety training. Thinking about safety should be as natural as thinking about other aspects of a job. Accidents cause millions of people to suffer painful injuries every year, and cost business almost $90 billion per year in medical bills, lost wages and lost production time. So, employees need to think about the possibility of accidents before they happen.

Topics covered in this program: Include developing safety awareness, basics of accident prevention, hazard evaluation, safety housekeeping, tool use and maintenance, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and more.


Safe Lifting in Construction Environments

Safe Lifting in Construction Environments provides the information employees need to protect their backs when they are lifting and carrying.

Topics covered in this program: Include the back’s structure and function; preparing for a lift; the mechanics of safe lifting; planning a “carry”; and more! Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.


Rigging Safety in Construction Environments

90% of crane-related accidents are caused by human error Rigging Safety in Construction Environments is designed to remind employees that over … and that they are the key to preventing these incidents. We have all heard the phrase… A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When it comes to crane operations, rigging can often be that weak link. How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. And rigging-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the large and heavy loads that are lifted. A small miscalculation, or a brief moment of inattention, and tragedy could strike. Once a load falls not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. A coworker can be injured or killed, and expensive equipment and cargo could be damaged or destroyed… even the crane itself.

Topics covered in this program: Include physical and mental preparation, personal protective equipment, equipment inspection, hazard assessment, slings, hitches, hand signals, load angles, and more.


Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments

1,000 Construction workers killed annually – 100,000 inured every year in the Construction Industry Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments is specifically designed to help employers in the construction industry meet OSHA requirements. It provides construction workers with the information they need to avoid injury on the job site by using appropriate PPE. Construction job sites are dangerous places. But government surveys show that most deaths and injury incidents could have been prevented if workers had been wearing proper personal protective equipment (PPE). This course looks at why personal protective equipment is so important and reminds employees of what is available.

Topics covered in this program: Overview of OSHA’s regulations involving PPE, personal fall protection, head, eye and face protection, respiratory protection, hand, foot and leg protection and more.


Lead Exposure in Construction Environments

Lead Exposure in Construction Environments provides employees with the information they need to understand lead hazards and the safety regulations that address them. The program also explains how to recognize lead hazards on a job site and handle them safely.

Topics covered in this program: Include the health effects of lead exposure; the OSHA Lead Standards for Construction; compliance programs; risk assessment and monitoring; PPE and respiratory protection; housekeeping and decontamination; medical surveillance and removal.


Ladder Safety in Construction Environments

Ladder Safety in Construction Environments reminds employees not to take using ladders for granted, and to take the appropriate precautions when using ladders. Ladders are one of the most commonly used pieces of equipment in almost any work environment. From common step-ladders to sophisticated extension ladders, they can be found almost everywhere. As a result, ladder-related accidents occur frequently in many facilities.

Topics covered in this program: Include ladder selection, inspection and maintenance, proper set-up, overhead hazards, climbing and working safely, accidents and first aid, and more.
