Construction Focus Four Hazards

AGC of America, supported by a Susan Harwood Federal Training Grant, developed the Focus Four Hazards in Construction Safety Training.

Construction workers make up approximately 4 percent of the country’s work force, but account for roughly 20 percent of all job-related fatalities each year. More important than the total number of construction fatalities are the causes of these fatal accidents. The construction focus four hazards continue to account for the greatest number of preventable fatalities and serious injuries in the construction industry.  AGC of America is pleased to offer this one-day training program based on OSHA standards and best practices to answer the need for quality training within the industry.
