Construction Site Safety Investigation Certificate Program is designed to take a risk assessment of the building site to identify hazards issues. Learning various accidents and incidents caused injuries to health and placing control measuring program. Finding the root cause of accidents which often detail construction where a competent assessor is the one who plays crucial rule to make daily operation smooth and reduce numbers of accidents.

Poorly trained employees are a danger to themselves and those who they are working with, and this is not because they choose to be or act in a wilfully negligent manner. There are many ways in which training can improve performance and reduce the risk of injury and just as many ways that a lack of proper training can spell disaster. Following are some of the ways the adequacy of training can be tied to the risk of injury.
  • Employees are unqualified for their positions. While on the job training is an invaluable educational tool, employers are often in a hurry to leave new employees to their own devices. This sink or swim approach can be dangerous because if the employee hasn’t shown that he or she can work safely, the risk of a workplace accident increases.
  • Employees are not provided with adequate safety procedures or protocols to follow. Everyone knows that using machinery is dangerous and can present a risk to those using it and others in their immediate surroundings. Informing a workforce on the proper ways to limit these risks and to respond in an emergency will greatly reduce the chances that workers will put themselves and others at risk. Safety checklists and protocols shouldn’t just be established for workers— they should receive training that educates them on safety procedures and how to abide by them.
  • New employees are not properly supervised. When a worker is receiving training on the job, it is important for his or her supervisors to remain with the employee and put an immediate stop to any action that risks the worker’s wellbeing or that of other workers in the area.
  • Employees are not provided detailed information concerning the risks that are specific to their occupations. An example of this would be apprentices on construction sites not being provided information on how to avoid electrocution, how to prevent falls from scaffolding or ladders and what forms of personal protective gear is needed on the worksite.
  • Employers do not keep accurate records of the training and qualifications their employees have received. It is important before attempting to find a solution to any problem to be able to evaluate where you stand. All employers should be aware of the strengths and weaknesses their employees possess and tracking their training and qualifications is where this process begins. In addition to making the workplace safer, it helps employers use their resources effectively by providing training to those who need it the most.
  • Failure of employers to determine whether an employee is suited to his or her tasks. Despite the best training practices, people may not be able to perform their duties and could be best utilized in an area or field they would excel in. Ensuring that employees understand their duties and can prove their proficiency will go a long way toward providing a safer work environment.
  • Employees are not provided safe alternatives to practices that commonly result in injury. Examples include the failure to illustrate how a worker can best lift heavy objects without strain to the back, failing to educate office workers on how to avoid excessive eye strain when sitting at a computer, or the correct way to handle chemicals without exposure to the skin, face or eyes.
