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.
- 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

- Gaining insight on evaluation and improvement programs
- Understanding the importance of communication and coordination for employers on multiemployer worksites
This online engineering PDH course provides OSHA guidance on controlling electrical hazards for protecting workers from exposure to electrical hazards.
Electricity has been long recognized as a serious workplace hazed, exposing employees to electric shock, electrocution, burns, fires and explosions. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, many workers have died from electrocutions at work, accounting for as many as 5% of all on-the-job-fatalities in a given year. What makes these statistics more tragic is that most of these fatalities could have been easily avoided.
OSHA recognizes that electrical hazards present serious hazards to all workers involved. Therefore, OSHA developed several standards for Controlling Electrical Hazards to protect employees working in the construction industry from exposure to electrical hazards.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to employers, building owners, engineers, electricians, managers, construction workers and any other personnel working on construction projects that involve exposure to electrical hazards.

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review OSHA 3075, "Controlling Electrical Hazards".
This online engineering PDH course presents OSHA guidance on the control of hazardous energy for protecting workers from the release of hazardous energy.
Employees can be seriously or fatally injured if machinery they service or maintain unexpectedly energizes, starts up, or releases stored energy. If the potential exists for the release of hazardous stored energy or for the re-accumulation of stored energy to a hazardous level, the employer must ensure that the employees take steps to prevent injury that may result from such release.
OSHA recognizes the risk of employees being exposed to the release of hazardous stored energy. Therefore, OSHA developed the Control of Hazardous Energy Standard to protect employees from the unexpected energization or startup of machinery or equipment, or the release of hazardous energy during service or maintenance activities.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to employers, building owners, engineers, managers, electricians, construction workers and any other personnel who are involved in servicing and maintaining electrical machinery or equipment.

This online engineering PDH course addesses Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) types, selection and training, as well as conducting a hazard assessment of the workplace.
Hazards exist in every workplace in many different scenarios: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. Controlling a hazard at its source is the best way to protect employees. Depending on the hazard or workplace conditions, OSHA recommends the use of engineering or work practice controls to manage or eliminate hazards to the greatest extent possible. Therefore, OSHA developed the Personal Protection Equipment Standard to protect employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury.
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, employers, building owners, facility managers, and all personnel working on construction projects.

This online engineering PDH course presents guidance on the design and construction of shelters in the work place, home, or community building to provide the required level of protection that may be assumed by building owners when deciding to build a shelter in response to the manmade CBRE threats as defined in the National Response Plan (
This course considers shelter design concepts that relate to the type of shelter being designed and where it may be located. It discusses how shelter use (either single or multiple) may affect the type of shelter selected and the location of that shelter on a particular site. It also describes key operations zones in and around a shelter that need to be taken into consideration as a means to provide safe ingress and egress and medical assistance to victims of a manmade event (terrorist attack or technological accident). The objective of this chapter is to provide a broad vision on how a shelter should be designed to protect against catastrophic events.
