This course focuses on the top four hazards in the construction industry (falls, electrocutions, struck-bys and caught-ins). Construction workers make up approximately 6% of the country’s workforce, but account for more than 20% of all job related fatalities each year. Construction is one of the most hazardous industries in America; each year a substantial number of construction workers, and countless others, are injured by these four hazards. Participants will be introduced to accident prevention techniques and hazard recognition to improve their awareness about the focus four hazards and ways to abate these hazards.
