Safety in Construction: Fall Hazards is a free online course covers the major hazards workers face while carrying out specific construction jobs, beginning with one of the leading causes of worksite fatality: falls. Study the anatomy of falls and consider how they can be prevented through ‘fall restraint systems’ and ‘fall arrest systems’. Then discuss the hazards associated with two common construction jobs: concreting and demolition. Concreting dangers can be minimized by taking specific precautionary measures when erecting formwork. Demolitions are inherently dangerous and require proper planning to ensure the safety and protection of workers and the general public. Also highlight the proper procedures for the removal of debris and other materials.
