We value our members, and the health and safety of our membership is of the utmost importance. In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, GBCA is evaluating next steps regarding GBCA events, on an ongoing basis. We will communicate the status of events to our members as information becomes available.
The OSHA Outreach Training Program for the Construction Industry provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in the construction industry. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. The 30-hour class is most appropriate for supervisors, seasoned professionals, or workers with some safety responsibility. Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to our nation’s productivity.
