Free Virtual Training Class for Alliance Members

The Chicagoland Construction Safety Council is offering a free virtual class to Alliance members on infectious disease hazards in construction

Thanks to federal grant funding, all materials and instruction for this virtual class are available AT NO COST – which allows Alliance Safety Council to offer this training FREE OF CHARGE to our members.
The class will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, June 29, 7:30 – 11:45am. Attendees will learn how to identify and manage infectious disease hazards on construction sites and also how to protect the public when performing construction in a healthcare setting.

The half-day virtual training will focus on exposure to infectious diseases, including COVID-19, in small businesses. Oftentimes, unseen hazards present dangers to workforce health and safety that are more threatening than physical hazards.

Participants will gain knowledge about measures to prevent the spread of harmful airborne and bloodborne contagions. The science may be complicated, but the solutions are easy to include in a company exposure control plan.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify common viral/bacterial/fungal diseases and their methods of transmission
  • Evaluate a work environment’s potential for harboring an infectious disease
  • Know what protective equipment and practices to use to prevent infection
  • Know OSHA’s requirements for medical surveillance
