Every employer is required to meet minimum federal workplace safety standards. Facilitators identify safety and health principles that help you meet OSHA requirements. This course provides information on employee rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify abate, avoid and prevent job related hazards on a construction site. Special emphasis is placed on areas in construction that most commonly result in worker injury or property damage. Additional topics are designed to provide attendees with a solid base of knowledge in hazard awareness and control measures to use to effectively manage safety and health on construction sites.
All participants will receive an OSHA 30-Hour card and completion certificate.
