This is the first course covering the hazards described in our Construction Focus Four Hazards series. The Focus Four Hazards series was developed to help educate workers in the construction industry about understanding the hazards they face, and knowing what their employer's responsibilities are to protect workers from workplace hazards. Once students complete this course they will be able to identify common fall hazards, describe types of fall hazards, protect themselves from fall hazards, and recognize employer requirements to protect workers from fall hazards.
