    Cal/OSHA Safety Training Requirements Unsafe practices, the primary cause of employee injuries, are often a direct result of inadequate employee training. Training is especially important for the construction industry since its injury rates are about 50% higher than the average for all industries. Of course, construction has higher injury rates because of its higher risks. Since an entire book (and a very large one) could be written just on Cal/OSHA training requirements, the following summary merely highlights some basic requirements for construction industry employers. Construction employers generally must follow their own special standards. However, if no construction industry standard applies, construction employers must then follow the applicable general industry standard. While there is considerable overlap between general industry and construction standards, the construction industry does face its own special hazards and challenges. For example, 65% of the construction workforce makes some use of scaffolds, which is a much higher percentage than in general industry. Another difference is the far greater danger from falls in construction than in general industry. Construction employers are also challenged by the more transitory nature of the construction workforce. This may make it tempting to assume that employees have already received all their necessary training from previous employers. The standards discussed in this Distance Learning program can be found in the California Labor Code, Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations (8 CCR). Most of the rules can be found in the Construction Safety Orders (8 CCR 1500 1938). However, the General Industry Safety Orders (8 CCR 3200 6184) and the Electrical Safety Orders (8 CCR 2299 2974) also apply to construction work where no specific construction safety order exists. Course Descriptions: Accident Investigation Designed to prevent similar accidents occurring in the future, this course focuses on fact finding techniques and gathering information crucial to understanding how the accident happened. Learn vital interview techniques and how to structure an Accident Report along with the pictures and diagrams necessary to ensure proper documentation and lessons are properly learned. This course is Cal/OSHA required and intended for Supervisors and Accident Investigators. 3203(a)(7)(F)
