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 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.

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review OSHA 2226, "Excavations".
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.
- 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.
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.
- Understanding the types of personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Knowing the basics of conducting a "hazard assessment" of the workplace
- Selecting the appropriate PPE for a variety of circumstances
- Understanding what kind of training is needed for the proper use and care of PPE
