The highest cost for all local and state agencies in Colorado is their employees. Between employee pay, cost of benefits, and the equipment that is required for employees to do their job, all impact the cost of doing business as a city, county or state organization. Organizations require preventive maintenance on purchased equipment to ensure that the equipment and its safety devices operate correctly. Similarly, employees need to be reminded of safety protocol and the steps required to protect themselves and their coworkers.
This class covers standards and rules to ensure safe working conditions, tools, proper use of equipment, mounting/dismounting, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and more. This program will focus on four areas that are the most hazardous for employees:
- Preventing Runover and Backovers and backing accident remediation options
- Slips, trips and falls around equipment and the shop
- Hazards of working in traffic
- Excavation and Trenching Safety in or around the roadway; and concerns of various types of Confined Spaces - manholes, vaults, screening plants, tanks and trenches.
Safety should be the concern of everyone in an organization. This course should be attended by all employees working in the field, as well as supervisors and managers.
This course is a CORE class in the Roads Scholar I course track and required for graduation. Click above for more details.
This course is temporarily being offered free-of-charge.
