Fall Prevention in Construction Safety Training
6/19/2024 - 6/20/2024
Construction workers make up approximately five percent of the country's workforce but account for an average of 19% of all job-related fatalities each year. In addition, falls account for the greatest number of fatalities in the construction industry, especially among small businesses and businesses with Hispanic workers. Over the past 10 years, at least, an average of 372 workers were killed from falls, slips, and trips, and fall protection violations continue to be among the most cited standards in the construction industry, consistently topping the list of OSHA's most frequently cited violations.
AGC of America, supported by a Susan Harwood Federal Grant, is pleased to offer this NO-COST one-day training program based on OSHA standards and best practices to answer the need for quality training within the industry. Continuing education credits are available for this course.
The program is being hosted by ACCNJ and GBCA from 8 AM to 5 PM on Wednesday, June 19 in Edison and on Thursday, June 20 in Philadelphia. Members may register for either day.
