Review of Syllabus

Course Organization - The six modules of SAFE 543 Construction Safety have the following components:

  • One real-world case study with four focusing on pre-planning and hazard evaluation
  • Notes and links to other sites to give you information necessary to complete objectives, assignments and case studies
  • Weekly readings from the text to supplement the course content
  • Weekly “Chat Sessions” to review material and discuss questions/issues
  • Assignments embedded within the notes to apply course content

Review of Case Studies

  • An overview of the case study and the construction job is found as a link on the course content home page in D2L.
  • Additional information on each module case study is found as a hyperlink within all modules after the module objectives. This introduction provides you an overview of the construction project which will be needed when completing each module’s case study.
  • Be sure to follow the Preplanning Report Format for the case studies for Modules 2-6.

Preplanning Report Format

I. Introduction: In this section of the report, the student should briefly describe the phase of construction for which the report was prepared, the purpose of the report and identify the scope of activities covered within this specific report.

II. Background Information and Possible Subcontractors Involved: Here the student should list what kind of subcontractors may be performing the work during this phase of construction.  

  • Identify/Evaluate/Control Hazards: In this section, the student should focus on the frequency and severity of the actual/potential hazards (risk assessment)and how this hazard will be evaluated, i.e. standards used to evaluate. The activities and hazards must be prioritized in descending order, i.e. number 1 listed as the activity that presents the greatest risk. Provide citations for your hazard selections

NOTE: Do not discuss all the possible hazards but focus on the TWO MAJOR hazards for each of THREEMajor activities in a particular phase of the job and for this specific site. The hazards must be unique across all case studies. For example, do not cite transportation hazards for every phase of the construction project.

1.Construction Phase - Activity (i.e. Site Preparation - Excavation)    

A. Actual/Potential Hazard: Identify the hazard   

B. Evaluation: Here the student should list the number of employees potentially exposed, describe the hazards' potential effects and discuss how this hazard will be evaluated (identify standards where appropriate).   

C. Controls: The student should list the controls that they would recommend for this hazard. The controls must consider all three areas:

      • Engineering controls
      • Administrative controls (Programs/Policies/Training)
      • PPE

  • Example of Section Three
  • Construction Phase – Activity: Finishing Work
  • Actual/Potential Hazard: Severe Injury/Fatality Resulting from Improper Use and Handling of Power Tools.
  • Evaluation:
    • It is anticipated that workers will be using a variety of power tools to complete the finishing work for the site. Examples of work that will performed include installation of HVAC systems, electrical, drywall, etc. Examples of power tools include sanders, grinders, drills, etc.
  • Controls:
    • Employers will be expected to comply with the 1926.xxxx standard for power tools. Controls shall include selection of power tools that meet OSHA standards, inspections…..[BE SPECIFIC]
    • Employers will be expected to comply with the 1926.xxxx standard for power tools. Controls shall include selection of power tools that meet OSHA standards, inspections…..[BE SPECIFIC]
    • Etc.
  • Resources:
    • OSHA regulations 29 CFR 1926.21(b)(2) Safety Training and Education
    • OSHA regulations 29 CFR 1926.300 Tools – Hand and Power – General Requirements
    • OSHA regulations 29 CFR 1926.302 Power Operated Hand Tools
    • OSHA regulations 29 CFR 1926.303 Abrasive Wheels and Tools

  • Live Classroom
  • The first part of the Chat Session will be an opportunity for me to review some of the major concepts covered in this weeks class. I will use PowerPoint slides to address most of this information.
    • The Chat Sessions are not counted as contact time. They are supplemental to the course requirements.
  • Following this overview, there will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions regarding the Module content, assignments or case study.
  • At the end of each Chat Session, archives will be posted.

  • Please upload all assignments through D2L.
  • I will only grade one assignment submission. Do not send one through D2L, a different one through email, etc. The first one I come across will be the one I grade.
  • Make sure your NAME is on the word document for assignments and case studies.
  • I will be using the D2L email to respond to individual students.

  • Every semester I make changes so you can not take the work from previous students. I will also be using “Turnitin” software to evaluate plagiarism. Make sure when you use material from any source that it is referenced and cited in the text!
  • Late assignment penalty, see the syllabus
  • Once the graded assignments are returned to students, I will not accept additional submissions.
case study 1
Case Study #1
  • For your first case study, you will need to develop a set of criteria for selecting sub-contractors based upon the following performance measures:
    • Accident/Injury Performance Measures
    • Loss Measures pertaining to Workers’ Comp, Property, Auto, and Liability
    • Safety Program Measures
case study 11
Case Study #1
  • For each measure, include the process an organization would be expected to follow in terns of data to be collected, how it would be analyzed, and decisions made.
