IAMU will be hosting four OSHA 10-hour Construction Outreach Courses to be held at the following locations:
· Mount Pleasant - September 28 & 29, 2015

· Ankeny (IAMU) - October 15 & 16, 2015

This basic safety course is recommended for workers and supervisors or those who have been given the task of developing and managing their employer’s safety program. Contractors: Many cities also require their contractors to maintain a safety program to be eligible to work for them. The OSHA 10-Hour course will help those owners, managers, and employees develop a solid safety foundation at their company to hopefully avoid incidents while working for the city or utility. Hiring a contractor to perform work for the city/utility does not eliminate all liabilities to the city. The contractor’s incident could drag you into litigation. This is why contractors you hire should have a strong safety program.
Topics to be covered: Introduction to OSHA, record keeping (300 logs), multi-employer citation policy, competent person requirements, OSHA’s focus four topics (electrical, fall protection, caught-in and struck- by hazard recognition), health hazards in construction, personal protective equipment, and hand & power tools.
Participants will receive a laminated wallet card from the U.S. Department of Labor OSHA certifying successful completion of this OSHA 10-Hour course. 29 CFR 1926 CFR Book & course material furnished.
