America's 56,000 steel erectors continue to suffer 35 fatal accidents per year, a rate of one death per 1,600 workers. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to define activities covered by Subpart R (Steel Erection), understand and explain site layout, site-specific erection plan and construction sequence, determine hazards associated with hoisting and rigging, ensure structural stability during the erection process and understand the importance of falling objects protection, as well as personal fall protection. The required amount of time to complete the course is dependent upon your knowledge of workplace safety, but we find that the average completion time is approximately 8 hours. You have up to six months to complete the course.
The student will take a comprehensive online exam at the end of the course. You must score 80% to receive certification. You have three opportunities to pass the exam.
A refresher course and exam will be required every three (3) years. The cost of this recertification is $95.
