WORKSAFE Certified is a newly developed safety training and awareness program that will enhance the knowledge base of jobsite supervisory personnel. To become WORKSAFE Certified, individuals would need to satisfactorily complete a 2-day training curriculum that is primarily focused on hazard awareness and mitigation. Some of the topics covered include – but are not limited to – pre-planning; excavations & trenching; demo & abatement; roofing & elevated work; electrical hazards; as well as corrective actions, and OSHA Inspection Protocols. Though this program is not meant to replace a 30 hour OSHA class, it does provide a high degree of focus on construction-specific safety education and training. The WORKSAFE Certified is also an important component of the new WORKSAFE Tiered Program.
