Fall Protection in Construction
This online engineering PDH course presents the OSHA guidelines for fall protection for protecting workers against potential fall hazards.
Historically, falls are the leading cause of fatalities in construction, accounting for about one-third of all fatalities in the industry. Workers involved in working at heights are exposed to potential fall hazards. Accidents involving falls are generally complex events frequently involving a variety of factors
OSHA recognizes that working at heights presents serious hazards to all workers involved. Consequently, the standard for fall protection deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for employers/business owners, engineers, managers and construction workers interested in better understanding the Fall Protection in Construction requirements and the reasons behind them.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Identifying potential fall hazards
- Selecting fall protection systems appropriate for existing conditions
- Implementing proper construction and installation of safety systems
- Training and supervising employees in the proper selection, use and maintenance of fall protection systems
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the OSHA Standard, "Fall Protection in Construction", (OSHA 3146), published in 2015.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 3 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this OSHA publication.
