Youth Construction Incident Prevention

Tacoma-Pierce County Employment and Training Consortium

Project Summary

Young workers entering the construction trades will be able to identify hazards, work in safe manners to avoid injury, protect their hearing and vision from impairment, work safely around scaffolding and heavy equipment, and identify risks in confined spaces. Construction workplace safety will assist young workers to build awareness that will keep them from physical harm throughout their enduring careers in the field. In turn, local employers will benefit from accident-free worksites, improved quality of work, elimination of work hour stoppages, and reduced L&I injury claims.

Amount funded: $74,933
