Neenah, WI - One in five private-industry fatalities in 2015 was construction-related (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics). To help construction companies foster a strong safety culture, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. developed its Construction Safety Basics training program.

“Construction work is often a dangerous and unforgiving job,” said Mark Stromme, subject-matter expert at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Solid safety training on the unique hazards construction workers face is critical to preventing injuries and fatalities.”

Construction Safety Basics training program helps workers (especially those new to a company’s jobsite) understand the safety issues and hazards they face, as well as what safe work practices they can use to protect themselves. Divided into four segments — Work Practices, Work Environment, Safe Use of Equipment, and In Case Of an Emergency — the training program covers 28 essential safety topics, including:

  • Slips, trips, and falls;
  • Personal protective equipment;
  • Fall protection;
  • Hazard communication;
  • Electrical safety;
  • Temperature extremes;
  • Hand and power tools;
  • Stairways and ladders;
  • Aerial lifts and scissor lifts;
  • Emergency action plans;
  • First aid/emergency response; and
  • Workplace violence.
