About this Event:
The construction industry offers young workers great career opportunities, but it also presents on-the-job hazards that can result in fall-related injuries or deaths. Falls remain the leading cause of work-related fatalities in the construction industry, and today’s younger generation of workers have unique learning preferences and expectations.
This course provides fall hazard awareness training with techniques for instructing young workers.
This course is recommended for the small construction employer, business owner or manager who needs to obtain information about training fall hazards for construction to youth workers. The training is also suitable for employees and employee representatives.
Participants should note that while this course has a primary emphasis on the construction industry, it is applicable for general industry environments with construction or maintenance work in progress.
- Identify factors that contribute to common fall hazards
- Discuss methods to control and prevent the hazards
- Recognize unique learning needs of young workers in the construction industry
Participants are encouraged to bring questions that are unique to their working environment for discussion in the course.
