Extended Academic Programs
This course covers important concepts in the realm of construction and workplace safety and is designed to cater to Project Engineers, Construction Personnel, Construction Supervision, Principals/Owners of Construction Firms, and Construction Administrative Staff. The course begins with importance of safety, supported by safety statistics and clarification of “myths” about the need for safe practices at work and at home. Most of the mainstream, PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, is introduced through illustrations and in-class discussion. The importance of Workplace Environmental Safety and Health 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.” Participants are introduced to fire classifications and associated fire extinguishers.
