Our Pledge for Safety Week - Get Safety Qualified For FREE

http://www.ehsinc.org/psq.html

In conjunction with Safety Week, we have partnered up with Procore to introduce an online safety program, free to the construction industry, for individuals and jobsite teams to participate in and become Procore Safety Qualified (PSQ). The program is designed to give construction professionals the tools they need to create a culture of safety and increase awareness on the jobsite.

“The Construction Safety initiative is an extremely important one. We believe in what Procore is doing through their Safety Qualified Program and we are happy to partner with the company in order to get resources to construction professionals throughout the industry.” -- Marjorie Del Toro, Founder and CEO of ehsInc.org.
 

The PSQ Program consists of 5 live-action courses that re-energize and unite project teams around the “why” of safety, instead of just the memorizing of rules and regulations. As our commitment to the cause, this holistic safety program, focused on best practices to avoid the top OSHA safety violations, is FREE to the industry.

Upon completion of the program, participants receive 5 continuing education units approved by many leading construction associations and a hard hat sticker as a representation of their commitment to safety, to themselves and to their project team. Each one of the five classes focuses on one of the top 5 OSHA safety violations. These include: 


Lockout Tagout
Become familiar with Lockout Tagout, OSHA's set of practices that safeguards workers from both the unexpected energization of equipment or the release of hazardous energy during service and maintenance of equipment.

Respiratory Protection
Learn how to create and enforce an effective respiratory protection program in the workplace.

Scaffolding
Become familiar with the structural elements of a safe scaffolding system and the fall protection measures you’re required to take.

Hazard Communication
Learn the proper safety information and instructions for using chemicals found in the workplace.

Fall Protection
Learn how to identify the safety hazards often associated with falls and become familiar with the fall protection measures.
