Seasoned construction safety practitioners will find this a valuable professional development resource and credential. This fast paced course utilizes subject matter experts that will address key issues facing construction safety professionals on the jobsites and in the corporate headquarters.
Construction represents the largest single purpose industry in the US, employing nearly 6% of the workforce. Unfortunately, it is the industry with the highest number of occupational fatalities accounting for 20% of the total work related deaths. This disproportionate statistic has driven the cost of insurance for contractors to a point where many have had to close their doors and cease doing business. Costly OSHA citations have also racked up soaring costs. The businesses that have survived have done so by taking strong affirmative actions to prevent losses on the job site while removing hazards associated with OSHA penalties. These actions have included developing aggressive safety programs, implementing safety training, and hiring construction safety administrators to advise the company on safety and health matters, insurance and risk control measures, and developing emergency preparedness and response plans. All of these steps have driven the market for dedicated, full time safety and health practitioners. This comprehensive 145-Hour Construction Safety Administrator Course will prepare participants to assume these positions. For those already working in safety, it will round out their educational background with topical information designed to meet the needs of today's construction industry.
