COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Construction Safety
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the OSHA guidelines for worker safety in construction for protecting workers against potential accident exposure.

 

Nearly 6.5 million people work at approximately 252,000 construction sites across the nation on any given day. The fatal injury rate for the construction industry is higher than the national average in this category for all industries. Potential hazards for workers in construction include:

  • Falls (from heights)
  • Trench collapse
  • Scaffold collapse
  • Electric shock and arc flash/arc blast
  • Failure to use proper personal protective equipment
  • Repetitive motion injuries

 

OSHA recognizes that construction work presents serious hazards to all workers involved. Therefore OSHA developed the OSHA Worker Safety Series in Construction to protect workers against potential accident exposure.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to employers/business owners, engineers, managers, construction workers and all other personnel working in the construction industry.
