Designated Training Topics. This training program is intended to provide entry level construction workers information about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job related hazards on a construction site. The training covers a variety of construction safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter at a construction site. Training should emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards. Instructional time must be a minimum of 10 hours. The minimum topic requirements are as follows:
Focus Four Hazards Training Requirements
All lessons for the Focus Four Hazards are required to use the following terminal (TO) and enabling (EO) objectives:
TO: Given current OSHA and industry information regarding construction worksite illnesses, injuries, and/or fatalities, the student will be able to recognize [fall, caught-in or between, struck-by, electrocution] hazards in construction.
Specifically for each of the focus four, the student will be able to:
EO 1: Identify major hazards
EO 2: Describe types of hazards
EO 3: Protect him/herself from these hazards
EO 4: Recognize employer requirements to protect workers from these hazards
Because these objectives are the expected student outcomes, trainers:
1) May not vary from these objectives when planning the training session; and
2) Must follow the participatory training model by applying effective training techniques;
3) Must make sure the objectives are measured by testing the student’s achievement.
Optional – 1 hour. Teach other construction industry hazards or policies and/or expand on the mandatory or elective topics. The minimum length of any topic is one-half hour.
