Cal/OSHA-8 Residential Framing Course Combines Real World, Safety

Sacramento, Calif.-based Safety Center Inc. announced the launch July 26 of Cal/OSHA-8 Residential Framing, the first industry-specific course of the Cal/OSHA-8 Real World & Safety program. Designed to educate foremen and supervisors on the daily responsibilities for accident prevention in the residential framing industry, the course incorporates the eight core elements of Cal/OSHA's Injury and Illness Program--responsibility, compliance, communication, hazard recognition, accident investigation, hazard correction, training, and recordkeeping.

"The course will provide foremen and supervisors with real tools to prevent accidents and illnesses on the job," said Jerry Bach, Safety Center VP of Safety & Health Services. "Participants will leave this course with the confidence and skills to communicate safety effectively."

The Cal/OSHA-8 program was developed in partnership with Cal/OSHA Consultation to address the high incidence of workplace injuries and fatalities in the construction industry. Since 2005, more than 1,200 students have participated in the course and more than 100 classes have been conducted throughout California. The Safety Center says other industry-specific Cal/OSHA-8 programs to come will cover water supply and distribution, wastewater management, underground utilities, and residential roofing.
