COURSE TITLE: Fall Protection in Construction
COURSE NO: C03-057
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Fall Protection in Construction
Course Highlights

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.

Learning Objectives

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
Course Document

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
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Trenching and Excavation Safety” prepared by the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA 2226-10R 2015.

COURSE TITLE: Controlling Electrical Hazards
COURSE NO: E02-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Controlling Electrical Hazards
Course Highlights

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.

Learning Objectives

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

  • What affects the flow of electricity
  • What is the cause of shocks and their effect on the body
  • How to react if someone "freezes" to a live electrical contact
  • How to protect yourself against electrical hazards
  • What protection does insulation provide
  • What are the different types of insulation
  • What are circuit protection devices
  • What work practices help protect you from electrical hazards
  • What role do tools play
  • Employee training
