Are you currently a construction worker? Are you looking to enter the construction industry?

You should know that Construction is a high hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities involving construction, alteration, and/or repair. For instance, it includes residential construction, bridge erection, roadway paving, excavations, demolitions, and large scale painting jobs. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos.

Construction safety is paramount!

Every construction worker should take an OSHA-approved course in basic safety. In some locations in the U.S. it is mandatory that you take a course before you are allowed on the jobsite.

Get your OSHA-approved training  done with us, today! It’s online, easy and can be done in as little as two days!

This training course is for any professional who works in construction. The purpose of this course is to outline the regulations set up by OSHA for construction workers and employers. This course ensures compliance with OSHA standards and, more importantly, the safety of construction workers.

Once you have completed our course, and pass the final examination, we will send you your  Department of Labor OSHA Wallet Card, as proof that you have completed the 10-hour requirement. This card is valid for all 50 states.

WHY IS THIS COURSE IMPORTANT TO YOU AND YOUR EMPLOYER?

In January, 2017, South Dakota-based construction company, Kempf Construction Inc., was cited for multiple violations stemming from a trench-box collapse which resulted in the severe injury of a 40-year old equipment operator. OSHA found five serious violations and issued a proposed penalty of $40,538.

The violations occurred when a Sioux Falls contractor was working in a 16-foot trench. During his work, a large amount of dirt fell into the trench box in which the man was positioned, and the trench collapsed upon him, severely injuring him.

OSHA found that Kempf Construction failed to provide adequate protection, failed to properly secure ladder for trench entry/exit, and failed to discontinue trench operations when hazardous conditions were made apparent.

Because of these break-downs in protocol, a man suffered a debilitating injury that could affect his ability to work for the rest of his life.

More than 22 workers lost their life in trench collapses in 2016. And, before OSHA was created, 43 years ago, an estimated 14,000 workers were killed on the job every year. Safety is paramount! Not only does it save lives, it also saves employers money. Fines from OSHA can range from $5000 up into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention liability lawsuits that accompany serious, preventable accidents!

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

The OSHA 10 Hour Construction course should be taken by those responsible for any level of job safety.  It covers the basic principles of occupational safety and health standards set forth by OSHA 29 CFR 1926.

The OSHA 10 Hour Construction Online Training Course is extremely valuable for entry level construction employees. The resulting OSHA Wallet Card is valid in all 50 states.

WHY LEARN ABOUT CONSTRUCTION HAZARDS AND PROTOCOLS?

Being able to identify the protocol for various workspaces and equipment is crucial to maintaining compliance with OSHA standards. With a great variety of environments (confined space, trench, roofing, scaffolding, etc.) and equipment (welding, hand-tools, derricks, lifts) to consider, the construction worker must be able to quickly identify and apply the protocols. When you work-in the handling of potentially hazardous or combustible materials, a training course like ours becomes extremely useful.

OSHA or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labor. The agency was established under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, passed under former U.S. President, Richard Nixon, in 1970. OSHA officially formed in April of 1971. The agency’s mission is to assure safe and healthful working conditions for men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance. OSHA is also charged with enforcing a variety of whistleblower statutes and regulations.

Today, OSHA plays a major role in protecting company owners and employees. An important function of the agency is to raise awareness, not only in the industrial sector, but in the public at large, as to what the responsibility of the company and individual is to ensure safety and compliance in the workplace. OSHA also plays a critical part in protecting the rights of the individual employee to speak up about any way in which they or the company may be in danger or non-compliant.

WHAT LAWS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME AND MY JOB?

Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (CWHSSA)

This act is particularly important to construction workers because it outlines fair pay for federally contracted work over 40 hours and prohibits unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous working conditions on federally contracted or funded construction projects.

This act outlines provisions for a number of items, like, unpaid wages, work hours, safety programs, contractor certification, and health and safety standards in building trades.

Without this act, the fair pay, safety, and protection of construction workers at federal construction sites would not be ensured.

Davis-Bacon Act of 1931

This act is of equal importance to construction workers because it covers contracts for federal projects in excess of $2,000. Much like the CWHSSA, the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 addresses a number of items that affect construction workers, like work-hours, wages, and fringe benefits. This act sought to make sure that construction workers were getting paid their fair share for work, according to the prevailing wage.

This act is important in the history of collective bargaining and addresses four different branches of construction: residential, heavy, buildings, and highway.

The long-reaching effects of this legislation include negotiation for improved pay and comprehensive benefit packages for salaried construction employees. Many standard items in a worker’s contract, today, come as a result of the labor and wage negotiations that took place in years past. Construction work has always been a part of those negotiations.
