Course Description

The course is crucial for those who supply support services such as debris removal, utility and public works repair, demolition, heavy equipment operators, and other construction trades. Primarily targeted to the trades, this course helps participants distinguish between health and safety hazards found at a typical construction jobsite from those at a disaster work site.
