COURSE TITLE: Electrical Safety
COURSE NO: E06-005
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Electrical Safety
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the hazards of electrical work and basic approaches to working safely.

 

Whenever working with power tools or on electrical circuits, there is a risk of electrical hazards, especially electrical shock. Anyone can be exposed to these hazards at home or at work. Workers are exposed to more hazards because job sites can be cluttered with tools and materials, fast-paced, and open to the weather. Risk is also higher at work because many jobs involve electric power tools.

 

Electrical trades workers must pay special attention to electrical hazards because they work on electrical circuits. Coming in contact with an electrical voltage can cause current to flow through the body, resulting in electrical shock and burns. Serious injury or even death may occur. As a source of energy, electricity is used without much thought about the hazards it can cause. Because electricity is a familiar part of our lives, it often is not treated with enough caution. As a result, an average of one worker is electrocuted on the job every day of every year! 

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to electrical and mechanical engineers, electricians, plant operators, construction personnel and others seeking an understanding of the basics of electrical system safety.

COURSE TITLE: Safety and Health Programs in Construction
COURSE NO: C03-062
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Safety and Health Programs in Construction
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides responsible employers, workers, and worker representatives with a sound, flexible framework for addressing safety and health issues on diverse construction job sites.

 

This course follows a proactive approach to managing occupational safety and health rather than a traditional approach where actions are taken only after a worker is injured or becomes sick. Finding and fixing hazards before they cause injury or illness is a far more effective approach. Doing so avoids the direct and indirect costs of worker injuries and illnesses and promotes a positive work environment.

 

Employers will find that implementing the recommended practices highlighted in this course will bring other benefits as well such as improvements in production/quality, better employee morale, improved employee recruiting and retention, and a more favorable image and reputation among customers, suppliers, and the community.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to health and safety engineers, construction and project managers, site engineers, and anyone who is interested in improving the standard and level of health and safety on construction sites.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the seven core elements of the recommended practices for safety and health programs in construction
  • Learning about the importance of effective management leadership
  • Understanding how to promote worker participation
  • Familiarizing with hazard identification and assessment
  • Learning about hazard prevention and control
  • Familiarizing with the education and training mindset required on site
  • Gaining insight on evaluation and improvement programs
  • Understanding the importance of communication and coordination for employers on multiemployer worksites

COURSE TITLE: Trenching and Excavation Safety
COURSE NO: C02-072
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Trenching and Excavation Safety
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the requirements for excavation and trenching operations. This course describes safe work practices that can protect workers from cave-ins and other hazards.

 

Trenching and excavation work presents serious hazards to all workers involved. Cave-ins pose the greatest risk and are more likely than some other excavation-related incidents to result in worker fatalities. One cubic yard of soil can weigh as much as a car. An unprotected trench can be an early grave. Employers must ensure that workers enter trenches only after adequate protections are in place to address cave-in hazards.  Other potential hazards associated with trenching work include falling loads, hazardous atmospheres and hazards from mobile equipment. Following the requirements of OSHA Excavation standards will prevent or greatly reduce the risk of cave-ins and other excavation-related incidents.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for employers/business owners, engineers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel working on construction projects involving trenching and excavation safety.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the different risks and dangers of trenching and excavation operations
  • Understanding the OSHA Excavation standards and how they protect workers
  • Pre-planning excavation work
  • Learning the basics of protective systems
Course Document
