Workplace safety is a shared responsibility between employers and their employees. Under the General Duty Clause, (Section 5(a)(1) of the OSH Act of 1970,) OSHA requires the employer to provide a safe environment for their employees. However, each employee needs to be aware of the potential hazards they may be exposed to when performing construction work, take action to avoid or eliminate them, and report hazards/unsafe conditions as they arise.
This program is designed to provide learners with a high-level overview of a number of construction safety topics and safety rules to comply with OSHA standards. Specifically, the safety orientation training covers an introduction to generic safe work practices, various worksite arrangements, the safe use of tools and equipment, and procedures for what to do in the event an emergency occurs.
The J. J. Keller Construction Safety Basics: Safe Use of Equipment program covers the following topics:
- Hand & Power Tools
- Stairways & Ladders
- Aerial Lifts & Scissor Lifts
- Heavy Equipment
After completing this program, learners will be able to:
- Recognize the hazards associated with using tools and equipment and identify safe ways to operate them
Intended Audience: New employees, or any employee working in the construction environment in need of a high-level overview of various construction safety topics.
