RedVector is proud to release a new course, Lead Safety in Construction: Keeping You Safe and Compliant.
Exposure to lead can cause brain damage, paralysis, kidney disease and even death. However, there are many methods to protect workers from exposure. In this one-hour interactive course, we will discuss these and other acute and chronic symptoms. We’ll discuss how lead is used in construction and identify the workers that are the most vulnerable to these risks. You’ll be introduced to OSHA’s Lead Standard on the responsibility of employers and how it’s designed to protect workers. Finally, we’ll go over the methods to reduce exposure to lead, including engineering controls as well as the proper protection for workers such as the use of personal protective equipment.
By the end of this course, you will be able to recognize the health hazards and how you can be exposed; identify the specific risks that construction workers face; explain elements of the OSHA standard; discuss the responsibilities of employers; select methods to reduce potential exposure and how personal protective equipment can help; demonstrate the basics of an effective worker protection program that you can implement at your workplace.
