SPR 21-608: Specialized Safety Training and Tracking for KYTC Construction and Maintenance Personnel

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

In the scope of occupational safety and health, training is an important tool for informing employees of workplace hazards and increasing their awareness of safety controls to remove and/or minimize associated risks. According to OSHA-recommended practices for safety and health programs, specialized training is necessary for workers and supervisors when the workplace presents unique hazards. Minimal attention has been given to specialized training programs for the highway construction and maintenance sector. There is also a notable lack of training resources highway construction and maintenance crews can use in their work scope. This indicates an urgent need for KYTC to develop a specialized training program for highway construction and maintenance employees that is specific to their work scope and addresses safety issues that beyond those covered in the OSHA 10-hour course. Identifying needs and development of the program will be done in cooperation with the crews. The final product will be a specialized safety training program with recommendations for implementation, evaluation, and tracking.
