Construction Site Response and Tactics for Success

Wednesday, April 26
Construction sites are present in most every emergency response area nationwide. Within these sites, the work being performed is inherently risky and dangerous by nature. Not every company has a great safety culture or provides their workers with the needed equipment. So, accidents are going to happen, and when they do we have to be ready. This class will look at the common types of work being performed on construction sites from trenching and excavating to employees working at heights and the risks associated. Our tactics will have to change from those of our everyday responses to fire alarms and medical calls. Each site is different and comes with its own risks that without some planning will set us up for failure.'
