You build residences. They turn into homes where family’s grow, and prosper. If you you work in residential construction, risks are often the last thing you think about. The nature of the work and the emphasis on keeping costs down have likely encouraged you to take chances you shouldn’t. Do you know what chances you SHOULDN’T take, or how to properly prepare before taking a risk?
Think about it, “Construction is one of the most dangerous occupations in the world, incurring more occupational fatalities than any other sector in both the United States and in the European Union. In 2009, the fatal occupational injury rate among construction workers in the United States was nearly three times that for all workers.” (Wikipedia). Training in general, not just residential construction training has been shown to reduce these numbers substantially.
We’ve a assembled a 5 level curriculum of 15 compulsory & 10 Elective courses to help residential construction training needs. We’ve touched on industry based training topics such as pre-access requirements, occupational hygiene & injury prevention, working above & below ground, equipment & emergency operations.
Keep in mind, that for courses based on “Equipment Operation” (ie: Forklift), “Life Safety”(ie: Body Harness) or “Life Preservation” (ie: Standard First Aid) Worker competency must be proven before a person can be considered fully trained. Competency evaluations are attached to each course requiring one in our database. Just be sure you have a competent person evaluating. For more information on competency, you can give us a call or read up on it, as described by the COAA here…
