WETHERSFIELD - Critical concepts and other construction site safety issues form

by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and
Taking place at the Labor Department’s Wethersfield Central Office, located at
200 Folly Brook Boulevard, the session will run from 10 a.m. to noon.
“Knowing how to properly protect yourself and knowing what to look out for as a
construction worker can literally mean the difference between life and death,”
explains John Able, CONN-OSHA Occupational Safety Training Specialist and
Certified Safety Professional, who will conduct the class.
“You must have a clear understanding of the hazards that may exist on the job
and that is what we will be discussing in this class,” he said. “People must be
able to recognize these hazards, and know how to minimize their exposure through
the application of proper work safety procedures. We’ll be looking at OSHA
requirements for fall protection, addressing scaffolding and ladder safety,
examining electrical hazards, and taking an in-depth look at trenching safety.
Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to improve their OSHA
compliance and overall site safety.”
Adequate time for questions will be allotted.
