Besides, trainees will be able to recognize electrical hazards and error traps associated with the potential for electricity to do harm. Our instructor will explain the basic Principles of Electricity in terms (analogy) that trainees can understand elctricity, current, circuit, resistance, conductors, grounding, insulators, incident enerygy and describe temperature flash/bang.

1-Hour Fire Protection and Prevention

In this course trainees will become generally familiar with the chemistry of fire as it practically pertains to construction. Besides, Trainees will be able to recognize potential for fire so as to avoid fires hazards. Furthermore, trainees should become aware of regulatory administrative fire safety requirements associated construction (FDNY, NFPA 241).

1-Hour First Aid and CPR

In this course trainees will become generally familiar with terms, equipment and procedures associated with first aid and CPR. Besides, trainees will be able to recognize when they or other workers are experiencing a medical emergency.

1-Hour Handling Heavy Materials and Proper Lifting Techniques

In this course trainees will become generally familiar with Health and Safety Programs (HASP). Besides, trainees will learn how to look for and review topics that come from HASPs. Next, we will explain and describe the difference between “safety” and “health” in terms of acute exposures to injury and more chronic exposures to illness and disease respectively. Furthermore, we will emphasize importance of an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) and describe the context of program management and the policies, procedures and processes that grow from the same.

1-Hour Health and Safety Programs in Construction

In this course trainees will become familiar with hierarchical strategy of moving/lifting heavy material. Besides, trainees will be able to recognize hazards associated with overexertion and musculoskeletal stress. Furthermore, Trainees will be able to avoid injuries associated with lifting.

1-Hour Hoisting and Rigging

In this course trainees will become generally familiar with terms and various equipment used during hoisting and rigging operations and activities. Besides, trainees will be able to recognize and avoid typical hazards associated with hoisting and rigging. Furthermore, trainees be introduced at an AWARENESS LEVEL basic rigging information and lifting principles.

1-Hour Materials Handling, Storage, Use, and Disposal

In this course trainees will become generally familiar with how to properly handle, store and dispose of construction material and debris. Besides, trainees will learn to recognize hazards and the appropriate controls associated with material handling, storage and disposal of construction material.

1-Hour Protection from Sun Exposure

In this course trainees will become generally familiar with the effects of over exposure to heat and sunlight. Besides, trainees will learn how ultraviolet (UV) rays change the structure of skin cells and how increased and unprotected exposure can lead to skin cancer. Furthermore, trainees will learn how to protect and minimize exposure to excessive sunlight.

1-Hour Repetitive Motion Injuries

In this course trainees will learn what is meant by ‘repetitive motion’ disorders and how they come to occur. Besides, Trainees will be able to recognize and avoid repetitive and ergonomic hazards associated construction activities. Our instructor will explain what is meant by ‘repetitive motion’ and provide examples, potential injuries and physical damage.

1-Hour Stairways and Ladders

In this course trainees will become generally familiar with the parts of ladders and stairs. Besides, trainees will be able to recognize and avoid hazards associated with stairs and ladders. Furthermore, trainees should become aware of administrative safety requirements associated with stairs and ladder safety. Our instructor will provide occupational statistics concerning stairs and ladders.
