Safety Hot Topics for Engineers

Credit: 8 PDH’s (1-Day)



This course covers important concepts in the realm of construction and workplace safety. This
course is designed to cater to Project Engineers, Construction Personnel, Construction Supervision,
Principals/Owners of Construction Firms and Construction Administrative Staff. This course begins
with importance of safety, supported by safety statistics and clarification of “myths” about need for
safe practices at work and at home. Most of the main stream, PPE, Personal Protective Equipment
and their proper use, is introduced through illustrations and in-class discussion. The importance of
Workplace Environmental Safety and Health – namely, indoor air quality – is covered with
emphasis on HVAC Systems and Mold Issues, as pertinent to residential, commercial and industrial
buildings. The latter part of this course deals with the one of the most significant hazards, in almost
any environment, “fire.” Attendees are introduced to fire classifications and associated fire
extinguishers. Hazards or arc flash (NFPA 70E) and lockout tag-out best practices are covered.
