Safety training and awareness building are a core fundamental of building a proper safety culture on your jobsites, so it’s important to know the resources that are available to you. The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has recently released a collection of free construction safety resources to help build and share safety knowledge.
The ASSP’s new construction safety resource page includes many blog posts, podcasts, and webinars covering various topics. They have also released their first two eLearning modules, focusing on fall protection (construction’s leading cause of jobsite fatalities) and safety management systems. Both courses can earn safety professionals up to 3.0 continuing education credits.
“Safety professionals in construction now have a great resource for guidance on identifying and controlling risks to improve productivity and keep workers safe,” said ASSP President-Elect Brad Giles, P.E., CSP, STS, FASSP, GIOSH, a longtime safety expert in the construction field, in a press release. “This approach enables ASSP to expand its reach and is ideal for the next generation of safety professionals who seek best practices and prefer online learning.”
