Week 8-Safe at First Sight?
- Construction and Demolition Site Safety
- Roles of Machinery in Safety
Students will understand construction and demolition site safety and the role machinery plays in safety.
Construction and demolition sites must follow specific safety guidelines. Building on knowledge learned in bESTology Week 7, students will learn about safety practices and the role machinery plays in safety.
