OSHA 10 Training for Construction ensures you understand how to navigate common job-site hazards so that you feel safe at work. Primarily, this involves spotting, avoiding, and reporting safety and health risks encountered on a daily basis.

The training includes best practices on how to prevent slipping, tripping, getting struck by an object, electrocution, and getting caught in between objects or machinery. Additionally, the training helps increase your knowledge about construction-specific safety measures under OSHA 29 CFR 1926.

You will also understand your employer’s responsibility for workplace safety, as well as the rights OSHA gives you as a worker and how to file a complaint if the workplace isn't living up to its safety obligations.
