CHST Exam Prep Course - Hurry Seating is Limited!

An analysis of government job data by the Associated General Contractors of America reveals that the industry’s unemployment rate of 4.5% is the lowest in 11 years. Conversely, the average hourly wage for construction—$29.06—is up 2.3% from last year and nearly 10% more than the average private-sector job.

Having a career in construction is very rewarding and having the CHST certification to back your name exemplifies enhanced professional credibility in the industry. This certification focuses on construction safety management principles and practice and does not require a college degree.

The CHST certification is great for professionals who are interested in pursuing a lasting career in construction or seeking personal as safety and health specialist on construction job sites.

We are offering a 10-session (10 consecutive Saturdays) CHST Exam Prep Course at our Irvine location starting September 8th.

FREE Hazard Communication Training

American workers use tens of thousands of chemicals every day. While many of these chemicals are suspected of being harmful, only a small number are regulated in the workplace.

In partnership with Procore we are offering FREE courses designed to give construction professionals the tools they need to create a culture of safety awareness.

One of these free courses is on Hazard Communication, which talks about the hazards and safety precautions surrounding dangerous workplace chemicals.

May is Safe Jobs for Youth Month

As the summer job season approaches, many young people are entering the workforce for the very first time. There’s a good chance no one has ever told them about their rights on the job, or how to stay safe at work.

Every 6 minutes, somewhere in the U.S. a teenager is injured seriously enough on the job to go to a hospital emergency room. 30-50 teens die from their injuries each year. These injuries and deaths can be prevented if we:

  • Know the laws
  • Make sure teens are doing appropriate work
  • Make sure teen workers are trained and supervised
  • Help teens learn to ask for help when they need it
