Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments
MARCOM's interactive course on Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments helps 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. 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. Areas covered in the course include an overview of the OSHA regulations involving PPE, head protection, eye and face protection, respiratory protection, hand protection, foot and leg protection, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests and more. The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
