Fall Hazard Protection​

Falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry. Workers who are six feet or more above lower levels are at risk for serious injury or death if they should fall. To protect these workers, employers must provide fall protection and the right equipment for the job, including the right kinds of ladders, scaffolds, and safety gear.

This course covers the essential tools and processes to protect employees from making a fatal error when working from elevated levels.

Supervisor Training

In the current business environment, companies are consistently seeking mechanisms to gain a

competitive advantage and improve profit margins. In any geographic area, labor, material and equipment costs are essentially the same. One of the few opportunities to differentiate and improve the bottom line is to increase productivity and efficiency through creating a culture of safety.

An important key to improving productivity is to train managers/supervisors, whose knowledge and

skills are critical to the success of a project. In this course, supervisors are trained to look at the job as a work process with many intricacies that are vital for increased productivity.
