Working Safely Around Heavy Equipment
A construction site is an inherently dangerous workplace. You must pay attention not only to what you are doing but also to what other workers around you are doing. The main goal of this session is to help you understand how important it is to work safely near heavy equipment. At the end of the session, you will be able to understand the leading causes of heavy equipment-related accidents, identify dangers associated with heavy equipment, discuss what OSHA regulations say about working safely on or near heavy equipment, and learn basic precautions to stay safe on the worksite.
