Course Description

MARCOM's interactive course on Safety Orientation in Construction Environments discusses common hazards that can be encountered on a job site and the safe practices and equipment that workers can use to avoid injuries.

Every year, on-the-job accidents cause millions of painful and sometimes debilitating injuries, and cost American businesses almost $90 billion dollars in medical bills, lost wages and lost productivity. But most of these incidents are preventable.

Topics covered include preparing mentally for the job; safety housekeeping and accident prevention; personal protective equipment; safe work practices and preparing for emergencies.

Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained.
