  • Using Power Tools Safely

    The introduction and development of power tools so completely transformed construction that, today, it’s almost impossible to imagine how things ever were built without using them to move, cut, penetrate, shape, fasten and break up building materials and components. But power tools also pose risks to users’ safety and health, so they need to be used with proper caution. This program will discuss these potential risks and offer advice on how to minimize jobsite injuries and accidents. Take the course.

  • Anchoring in Concrete: Tools and Techniques for Jobsite Safety

    Proper installation of anchor bolts isn't as simple as drilling a hole, and inserting the anchor. Proper installation has become extremely important over the past few years. This program will review tools and techniques for jobsite safety in concrete anchoring projects. This program will start by giving you an overview of terms and definitions from ACI 318 Appendix D, titled Anchoring to Concrete that will define different types of anchors appropriate for different structural requirements of concrete. We’ll move on to discuss proper procedures for installing anchors in concrete, and some tools you can use to get the job done correctly. Finally, we’ll discuss different drilling techniques. But before we begin, let’s take a minute to talk about why all of this is so important. This program is intended for contractors and is not registered for continuing education credit. Take the course.
