 Safety training is one of the three components in ARTBA’s June 4-6 “Transportation Construction Professional Development Week.” The event will be hosted at ARTBA’s Washington, D.C. offices, near Capitol Hill.

The safety session, on the morning of June 4, will focus on identifying and addressing the top five hazards in roadway construction sites:

  • struck-by
  • falls
  • trenching
  • night work
  • temporary traffic control

The session is also a primer for the ANSI-accredited Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals™ (SCTPP) program. More than 300 industry professionals from 36 states have earned the safety certification, and the Texas Department of Transportation has committed 500 of its employees to take the exam this year.

The session will include a SCTPP practice exam and explanation of the correct answers. It will also review how ARTBA’s Online Learning Center courses can prepare you for the exam while earning up to 12 Professional Development Hours (PDHs).

ARTBA’s Senior Vice President of Safety & Education Brad Sant; Vice President of Education Operations Beth Stinson; and Director of Safety & Certification Katie Chimelewski will help attendees develop a strategy to roll-out the SCTPP program at their company. They also will showcase the one-click tracking and progress reporting system.

The other two segments of the Professional Development Week are the Project Management Academy on the afternoon of June 4 and morning of June 5, and the 11th Annual Law & Regulatory Forum on the afternoon of June 5 and morning of June 6. Our next story will focus on the Project Management speakers and content as the second component of the Professional Development Week.
