The Bridge Construction Inspection Safety discusses safety standards and the inspector’s role in enforcing them, as well as, the personal protective equipment that is designed to protect the worker’s body against occupational and safety hazards.
There are three topics that this course will cover including safety responsibility, personal protective equipment, and potential hazards. The course references OSHA and ANSI safety standards. Two important areas covered include communication and inspector authority. Hazards on the bridge construction site including equipment, traffic and falls are each detailed for the inspector. Trenching and excavation hazards, confined spaces, painting hazards and construction over waterways are important safety areas that anyone on bridge inspection should be knowledgeable of and are included in the course.
