Personal Protective Equipment: 07. Construction

Updated Apr 29, 2020

OSHA estimates that nearly 6.5 million people work at construction sites across the country every day and they recently found that the rate of fatalities in construction is higher than the national average of all other industries. This means that personal protective equipment (PPE) is of utmost importance for anyone working in this field. Yet, many folks in the industry don't use PPE the way they should. In this program, we'll talk about the reasons why people don't use the proper PPE, we'll discuss employer responsibilities in terms of PPE specific to the construction industry, and we'll go through each of the different types of PPE. This course is an introduction to the OSHA regulations created specifically for the construction industry, and is ideal for new employees.
