Construction Industry Outreach Courses

Stanford Brown founder of Raising the Standard Consulting USA Inc. is an authorized trainer of the 10 and 30 hour construction industry outreach courses.

AN EXCEPTIONAL CLASS EXPERIENCE

Emphasis

The classes are designed to be presented to workers. They emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards and regulatory codes. The presentations are tailored to the needs and understanding of the audience. Each class is evaluated to determine the best methods of training before the class begins.

Site-Specific Training

We believe that the most rewarding classes for students are the ones they can relate to because the trainer uses examples, pictures, and scenarios that come from the student’s work place, industry or community.

Homogenous Class

The ideal class to teach is one where students have similar positions and needs. We endeavor to conduct separate training classes for supervisors, managers, and workers as much as possible unless a combined session would assist the students in fostering a culture of teamwork. We also try to separate workers into like groups, for example, office personnel, machine operators, and maintenance staff when possible.

Training Purpose

We explain up front, that the training isn’t a bureaucratic exercise. We emphasize that it may save a life and help them continue to provide for their family. We explain that safety and health add value to the company, the workplace and their life.

Use Objectives 

At the beginning of each session we describe the skills and abilities the students should have or exhibit for each topic and relate the objectives to the students’ work, whenever possible.

Presentation Assortment

Students learn in different manners, and get tired of one training style. Therefore we use different trainers, computer presentations, videos, case studies, exercises and graphics to make the course interesting and enjoyable. By doing this we employ the three levels of training techniques - presentation (presenting the material in a variety of ways), discussion (getting the students involved in the learning), and performance (students practice the material they learned).

Testing

We use quizzes and tests to ensure the student understands key objectives. We also provide students feedback on incorrect answers in an open discussion format.

Evaluations 

Students will have the opportunity to evaluate our classes. This feedback will help us determine whether the course is accomplishing its goals and provide input we can use to improve the training.
