This 2-day course will present an overview of fundamental safety principles. 


  • Describe basic safety and construction safety principles
  • Discuss safety audits, inspection techniques, and documentation
  • Discuss and conduct a job safety analysis
  • Explain accident investigation 
  • Review OSHA reporting requirements
