Description

MARCOM’s interactive course on Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments is specifically designed to help employers in the construction industry meet OSHA requirements. It provides construction workers with the information they need to avoid injury on the job site by using appropriate PPE.

Construction job sites are dangerous places. Each year more than 1,000 construction workers are killed on the job, and another 100,000 are injured. But government surveys show that most of these incidents could have been prevented if workers had been wearing proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

This course looks at why personal protective equipment is so important and reminds employees of what is available. Areas covered in the course include an overview of OSHA’s regulations involving PPE, personal fall protection, head, eye and face protection, respiratory protection, hand, foot and leg protection and more.

Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained.
