Construction work is very dangerous, as nearly 1000 workers are killed and thousands of others are injured on construction jobsites each year. While there have been many safety improvements over the years to control the hazards that contribute to these incidents, new and inexperienced workers still get hurt on the jobsite way too often. This program stresses the point that these workers must be responsible for their own personal safety.

Topics include PPE, excavation, ladder safety, scaffolding, fall protection, and electrical safety.
