Procore Safety Qualified Provides Free Access to Safety-focused Continuing Education Courses for Construction Professionals
Today, we introduce our third annual Procore Safety Qualified program, a course series focused on making jobsites safer. On Monday, May 6, our courses will become available for free in recognition of Construction Safety Week. We are also participating in a partner giveaway, if you register now for the courses, you'll be entered to win 1 of 3 prizes that will support safety on the jobsite.
In 2018, more than 800 construction industry professionals dedicated over 6,000 hours to safety education through the completion of the Procore Safety Qualified (PSQ) course series. If you missed last year’s PSQ program, you can still take the courses by visiting the Procore Safety Qualified course library. One of last year’s participants, Steven O’Brien, Asturian Group Superintendent, shares the value he sees in having his construction team safety qualified, “Establishing a baseline level of skills training and knowledge allows for a greater discussion of more complex issues.”
The 2019 Procore Safety Qualified program has three new courses that address complex hazards by teaching and developing best practices using technology. The curriculum will include courses on:
- Silica Exposure in Construction: how to manage silica exposure and create a control plan
- Confined Spaces: managing, classifying, entering and permitting confined spaces
- Safety Technology: how to leverage technology to improve safety on the jobsite
“We all need to be educated rather than relying on one individual for safety information,” says Trent Bonnett, Williams Company Senior Project Manager and 2018 PSQ participant.
This is the drive behind PSQ, to give all construction professionals access to safety training in order to improve safety on every jobsite, which is why we offer these courses for free.
“We believe that safety is of utmost importance within the construction industry,” says Darryl Kysar, Director of Procore.org. “We want to contribute to furthering understanding of safety hazards by providing continuing education courses to construction professionals at no cost.”
