John C. Huang, Ph.D., P.E.
Each year, hundreds of construction fatalities occur as a result of accidents. Engineers and land surveyors can minimize construction accidents by getting familiar with the OSHA safety regulations and promoting design for construction safety. This webinar provides a general overview of the OSHA safety regulations (Standards – 29 CFR Part 1926) for the construction industries. It covers the most prevalent but also most preventable workplace hazards. Topics include Subpart E - Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Subpart K - Electrical, Subpart M - Fall Protection, Subpart P - Excavations, Subpart Q - Concrete and Masonry Construction, Subpart R - Steel Erection, and Subpart AA - Confined Spaces in Construction. In addition, we will review the U.S. construction and fall statistics and discuss the importance of safety and risk management.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
