Competent Person for Jobsite Safety Inspections

$125 – $180

Competent Person for Jobsite Safety Inspections


Thursday, May 23, 2019  / 7:30 am – 1:30 pm


OSHA requires that employers on construction sites conduct safety inspections of job sites and require that a Competent Person, designated by the employer, be responsible for the completion of the inspections. More specifically a Competent Person is required to complete inspections of scaffolds, fall protection equipment and systems, trenches, confined spaces, and the list goes on.

The intent of this session is to review the role of the Competent Person and to assist in identifying the hazards associated with many of the jobsite programs requiring inspections.

Benefits of Attending:

This session will assist the attendee to better understand the following:

  • Defining a Competent Person and their role on a jobsite.
  • When and how often to complete inspections?
  • The connections between the General Contractor, Sub-contractor and the Competent Person.
  • Who is responsible for completing jobsite inspections?
  • How does this general requirement for site inspections tie-in to more specific inspection requirements found in other standards?
  • How can inspections be used to better manage safety?

At the end of this session participants will understand the importance of inspections, what to look for and how to meet OSHA’s requirements.  This session will include classroom exercises to assist in developing the skills and knowledge to aid in the development of inspection forms and guides used to develop their own competent person inspection program.

Develop Your Knowledge and Learn More About:

  • Review of the OSHA Requirements Related to Site Inspections
  • General Site Inspection Requirements
  • Competent Person Requirements for General Applications
  • Competent Person Requirements for Specific Applications
  • Identification of Hazards (Required Inspection Topics)
  • Documentation Methods and Requirements
  • Responsibilities for Inspections on a Multi-employer worksite.

Who Should Attend:

Anyone who has the potential to or has been identified by their employer to conduct a worksite inspection.

Since site safety and inspections are required, lead persons, supervisors, foremen, project managers or even individual trades persons have been most likely tasked with company safety responsibilities. These persons along with Safety Managers and Construction Managers, who are responsible for maintaining and implementing inspection pro-grams, will benefit from attending this informative program.
