Construction Safety Online Training Courses
We offer the following online courses covering multiple topics within the Construction Safety category.
Our interactive course on First Aid in Construction Environments shows employees that knowing basic first aid procedures can often limit the severity of any type of injury… or even prevent a death. In most facilities, not a day goes by without some type of injury occurring. It can be as serious as a chemical burn or as minor as a small cut. But any injury can be painful, and affect an employee’s work performance… as well as their activities off the job. Areas covered in the course include cuts and bleeding, muscle pulls and sprains, burns, broken bones, shock, AEDs (automated external defibrillators), artificial respiration and CPR, and more.[OSHA 29 CFR 1910.151]
Our interactive course on Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments has been created specifically to involve employees in the process of understanding the proper use of personal protective equipment and to help facilities in fulfilling OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment Standards (29 CFR,1910. 132, 133, 134,135,136,137,138) training requirements.
The course looks at why personal protective equipment is so important and reminds employees of what is available. On-the-job injuries affect all types of people, doing all types of work. Each year hundreds of thousands of workers are injured… at a cost to employers of billions of dollars annually. Studies show that the majority of workplace injuries could be avoided if employees used the proper personal protective equipment. Yet many people have little idea of what protective equipment should be used in their jobs, or how to use it properly. Areas covered in the course include a review of OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Standards, PPE for eye and face hazards, PPE for respiratory hazards, PPE for head hazards, PPE for foot hazards, PPE to guard against electrical hazards, PPE to guard against hand and finger hazards, and more.[OSHA 29 CFR 1910.132–136]
Our interactive course on Struck-By Hazards in Construction Environments provides the information employees need to recognize the struck-by hazards that are associated with construction tasks and take steps to avoid them before accidents happen. Struck-by accidents occur when a person is hit by a moving object. On construction sites this can include being hit on the head by a falling hammer, hit by particles being thrown from a grinder, hit by a truck that’s backing up, or hit by a load of wallboard that’s being hoisted. Struck-by accidents are one of the four top causes of fatalities in construction work, and can result in serious injuries as well. But they don’t have to happen. Topics covered in this program include personal protective equipment; traffic safety; heavy equipment; masonry walls, overhead work and building materials, and more.
