Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act to "assure so far as possible every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions and to preserve our human resources". Since its passage in 1970, workplace injuries and illnesses are down-from an average of 10.9 incidents per 100 workers in 1972 to 2.7 per 100 currently.

Construction is among the most dangerous industries and construction inspections historically comprise 60% of OSHA's total inspections. This class provides training for entry-level construction workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in the construction industry. The class also provides information regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities and how to file a complaint.

Participants will receive in-depth, up-to-the-minute training, carefully paced for optimum comprehension and retention. Training includes lecture, participant discussion, hands-on exercises, visual presentations and virtual hand-outs — all designed to create a stimulating, knowledgeable training experience. This training is specifically designed to give you the tools, techniques and how-tos required to establish your own organization-wide safety training and support programs, as well as to identify and eliminate safety hazards, health threats and other workplace dangers, while promoting a safe and healthy work environment in accordance with OSHA standards.

Participants receive a DOL-issued OSHA Class Completion Card after successfully completing the training. To receive your class completion card, your seminar tuition must be paid in full prior to the start of the seminar. Your trainer will submit your paperwork after the 10-hour class has been completed and there is record of your tuition as being paid in full. You will receive the card within 30 days from the date you completed the class.

Attendance is limited in accordance with OSHA Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) procedures.
