Construction Steel Erection Safety

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1926 Subpart R

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online training certification course presents an overview of steel erection in construction work. It details the risks involved in working on or near steel erections, as well as how different environment and job stages impact these safety hazards. Structural steel training topics include the design decisions that help prevent and isolate safety hazards and key practices to reduce the likelihood of accidents and injuries.

The construction industry is inherently dangerous, with its workers suffering a higher fatality rate than any other industry. Steel and iron workers have the second highest rate of on-the-job injury among construction workers, second only to roofers.

This course is for:
This steel erection certification course is designed for anyone who works on or near steel erections in the construction industry, including workers, foremen, managers, and supervisors. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives. Anyone in the area where steel erection is taking place must adhere to the safety requirements.

Case Study: In 2013, there were two separate cases of structural collapse due to improper column anchoring. In both cases, the anchor bolts were not installed properly by the concrete contractor and were later cut off and repositioned. While it is possible to perform this kind of change safely, neither of the contractors in either case consulted the structural engineer on the project for advice or approval, and in both cases the modifications were done improperly. In these cases, the unapproved changes to the anchor bolts caused 50-foot and 60-foot steel columns to come crashing down suddenly and unexpectedly, which would have crushed anyone who had been in the way. Fortunately, no one was injured in either case, but the potential for injury and death was present and avoidable.

Key Takeaway: Columns bear the weight of the entire operation. Structural engineers are trained to design steel erections safely from the ground up, and making unauthorized modifications to their engineering plans can jeopardize the safety of everyone involved.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1926 is designated for construction industry standards, and the construction steel erection standard is found in Subpart R.

    Additional Resources

It will take a MINIMUM of 2 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as steel erection.

To ensure compliance with OSHA Subpart R, safety training must be conducted regularly so that employees have the necessary knowledge and skills to perform work safely. Retraining is required when there are changes in the worksite, types of scaffolds, fall protection, or other equipment. This steel erection certification online course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
