Construction is a high-hazard industry that includes a wide range of activities involving building, repair, alteration and demolition of buildings and facilities. The risks can be minimized, however, only when workers understand the hazards and when a comprehensive health and construction safety training program is implemented.
Residential, commercial and industrial construction workers engage in multiple activities that routinely expose themselves to severe hazards, including falls, improperly constructed platforms, trench collapse, hand and eye safety, proximity to unguarded high-speed machinery and heavy equipment, electrocutions, repetitive motion injuries, falling objects, silica dust, chemicals and asbestos. Nearly 6.5 million people work at approximately 252,000 construction sites across the nation on any given day, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Due to the inherit risks, the fatal injury rate for the construction industry is higher than the national average for all industries.
Construction Safety Training Protocols
Reliant Safety Solutions, LLC, (RSS), provides construction safety training solutions for the construction industry. Our consultants assist in the implementation of programs for safety management, integrating safety as a culture, creating accountability plans, creating safety training plans, implementing fall protection systems, planning inspection regimens, preventing substance abuse, and evaluating accidents and near misses. It is extremely important to have the right safety protocols in place for your company and the safety of your employees.
Why is Training Important?
Many employers are unaware of the regulations that apply to their workplace, as well as the hazards that their employees are exposed to on a regular basis. Before conducting safety training, RSS will help employers identify the hazards and regulatory concerns inherent in their business. This enables us to determine where your employees require training, and to what level they need to be trained.
