Course Description

MARCOM's interactive course on Struck-By Hazards in Construction Environments provides the information employees need to recognize the struck-by hazards that are associated with construction tasks and take steps to avoid them before accidents happen.

Struck-by accidents occur when a person is hit by a moving object. On construction sites this can include being hit on the head by a falling hammer, hit by particles being thrown from a grinder, hit by a truck that's backing up, or hit by a load of wallboard that's being hoisted. Struck-by accidents are one of the four top causes of fatalities in construction work, and can result in serious injuries as well. But they don't have to happen.

Topics covered in this program include personal protective equipment; traffic safety; heavy equipment; masonry walls, overhead work and building materials, and more.

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.
