New OSHA Focus Four Training
Tuesday, May 2; 8AM-12PM at North Fork at Briargate
Did you know that 1 in 5 worker deaths in 2015 were in the construction industry? The leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, followed by struck by object, electrocution, and caught-in/between. These "Fatal Four" were responsible for 64.2% of construction worker deaths in 2015. Designed for homebuilders and their trade partners, this training covers the big four construction hazards as designated by OSHA: falls, struck-by, caught-in/between, and electrical shock and will focus on the methods for the recognition and the prevention of these common hazards. Thank you to our sponsor and host Classic Homes for making this affordable safety training possible. Register Now and share the flyer!
