Safety Topic:

Fall Prevention 

Falls are the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry. Construction falls can be deadly, but they are also preventable. Plan ahead to get the job done safely. Provide the right equipment and train everyone to use the equipment safely. Encourage your employees to talk about how to prevent falls and conduct safety equipment inspections, develop a rescue plan, and discuss job specific hazards.

Training Opportunities: Elevated Work (A13ELW)

Falls kill. They are the top cause of construction fatalities and account for one-third of on-the-job injury deaths in the industry. Elevated Work (A13ELW) identifies common hazards and explains important safety practices to help ensure every team member is prepared to recognize fall hazards on the job and understand how to keep themselves and others safe.


Heat Stress 

Workers who are exposed to extreme heat or work in hot environments may be at risk of heat stress. Exposure to extreme heat can result in occupational illnesses and injuries.

Prevention of heat stress in workers is important. Our Heat Stress (13HEAT) course provides training so they understand what heat stress is, how it affects their health and safety, and how it can be prevented.
