Safety Courses

We are committed to promoting safety in the workplace through development and promotion of comprehensive classes, seminars, and workshops designed to increase awareness of current and continuous safety issues.

Our Chapter currently offers the following safety course:

Construction Site Safety Technician (CSST)

The Construction Site Safety Technician program is a 100-hour comprehensive, modularized safety program designed to train an individual to effectively manage a project-wide safety program. It provides a journey-level craftsperson or job site foreman the instruction needed to coordinate a construction site project safety program.

The course consists of the combined Field Safety and Safety Technology curriculum, and is a necessary addition to any company’s new employee orientation program. 

Field Safety will provide you with the rules and safeguards you need to work safely on any job site. Safety must be incorporated into all phases of the job and involve all employees at every level, including management.

Field Safety covers topics such as Hazard Communication, Fall Protection, and Forklift Safety.

Safety Technology provides instruction on how to implement and administer a company’s safety program.  This manual is designed for field managers, safety directors, safety committees, owner safety representatives, and insurance/loss control representatives. 

To register for Field Safety, click here, or call our office at 504.468.3188.  Participants must be able to read, write, and communicate in the English language.

Registration for Safety Tech will take place during the last week of your Field Safety Course.

In addition to the CSST Certification, participants will also receive their OSHA 30-Hour Construction Card.
