Construction job sites are dangerous places. Each year more than 1,000 construction workers are killed on the job, and another 100,000 are injured. But government surveys show that most of these incidents could have been prevented if workers had been wearing proper personal protective equipment (PPE).
That’s why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide and maintain appropriate PPE for their people, and train them on how to use it.
MARCOM’s “Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments” training products are specifically designed to help employers in the construction industry meet OSHA requirements. They provide employees with the information that they need to avoid injury on the job site by using appropriate PPE.
All of the products… the new “Micro-Learning” and full-length online courses as well as the DVDs and interactive CD courses… discuss topics that are integral to employees’ understanding of these issues.
Topics covered in the products include:
- An overview the OSHA regulations involving PPE.
- Personal fall protection.
- Head protection.
- Eye and face protection.
- Respiratory protection.
- Hand protection.
- Foot and leg protection.
- and more.
All “Personal Protective Equipment” products are available in English and Spanish.
