The Construction Career Collaborative Ramps Up to Deliver Their 5-Hour Safety Awareness Course

The Construction Career Collaborative (C3) announced last week that they are taking applications for the next C3 Train the Trainer session.  The Train the Trainer course is where C3Trainers are credentialed to deliver the new C3 5-Hour Safety Awareness Course that is included in the General Conditions and Specifications for C3 projects.  The C3 5-Hour course is intended to complement the OSHA 10-Hour course and addresses hazards specific to a commercial construction site.  The course also includes information on the Construction Career Collaborative and its efforts to improve the health and well-being of the craft worker.

To date, over 40 trainers have received their credentials with 36 Houston companies participating.  C3 Trainers are required to have successfully completed the OHSA #500, have experience in health and safety, and hold a proven record of training.  Organizations wanting more information about the C3 Train the Trainer course should visit the link on the Construction Career Collaborative home page for C3 Train the Trainer.

The Contractor’s Safety Council of Texas City (SCTC) will soon begin offering the C3 5-Hour Safety Awareness Course at their Texas City location.  Check the C3 website for announcements.

Contractors wishing to identify additional locations where they can send their workforce to take the C3 5-Hour may sign up to receive notifications through a link provided on the C3 website under C3 5-Hour Safety Training.
