The Construction Work Zone Safety for Heavy Equipment Operators course provides safety awareness training for heavy equipment operators and those who work around heavy equipment in construction work zones. The course addresses OSHA‘s top four causes of injury and death: falls, struck-by, caught-between, and electrocution.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
