Program Description

Supervisors in the construction industry are invaluable to a world-class safety culture. As an "agent of the employer," and the first-line representative of management, every supervisor has a legal obligation to understand his or her safety responsibilities in the workplace.

This program helps supervisors develop the knowledge and skills to fulfill those responsibilities and be an effective leader. By completing this program, students will understand how safety supervisor responsibilities apply to the construction industry.

Individual Benefits

Becoming a true safety leader is not a one-stop destination, but rather a continual journey. It is important you stay current in the construction industry and know how to apply safety to be successful. By completing this program, you will be able to:

  • Develop your safety and leadership skills within the construction industry.
  • Stay current on OSHA's regulations.
  • Learn how to effectively investigate accidents.
  • Monitor construction employees.

  • Impact the success of your safety management system.
  • Ensure all employees implement and follow safety standards relevant to the construction industry.
  • Properly identify the hazards each level of employee faces.
