The Safety and Hazard Awareness for Tunnels (SHAFT) is the core of our tunnel safety program. Students will benefit from a combination of classroom lecture and discussion as well as an interactive experience with “Helene,” our onsite tunnel boring machine mockup.

Safety Laborers Training
Let’s get serious for a minute here.
Safety is not just a priority—it’s a core value. Safety is the most important duty and responsibility of every construction team member on every job site. Our actions shape the culture of an industry that guides the attitude, character and behavior of every construction team member. A culture of safety is infused through ongoing education, rigorous activity preplanning, job-specific safety analysis plans, and accountability at every level of the project.
Safety is our most important duty and responsibility as a construction team member, because we choose to foster a safe and injury-free work environment. Every construction team member is empowered to take action to ensure accidents do not happen. Every construction team member works toward the goal of creating a safe and healthy work environment that promotes safe productivity, and is proactive in anticipating and avoiding risk.
Zero accidents is the goal of every construction team member. Zilch. Zip.
Heavy Civil & Highway Laborers Training
We’ll never tell you to go play in traffic. But we will teach you how to work in, near and around it.
On every heavy and highway construction site, construction laborers clear and prepare highway work zones and rights of way; install traffic barricades, cones and markers; and control traffic passing near, in and around work zones. Laborers install sewer, water and storm drainpipes. They check road grades, place asphalt on roadways and place concrete on roads, bridges and dams. They break and remove old structures. Laborers operate a variety of equipment, including jackhammers, pavement breakers, concrete mixers, earth compactors, boring machines, mechanical hoists, lasers, and surveying and measuring equipment.
Even though you’re technically not playing in traffic, some of that equipment is pretty cool.Learn More
Environmental Laborers Training
Construction laborers do a lot to keep their communities safe.
At hazardous-waste removal sites, construction laborers are specially trained to prepare the site and safely remove asbestos, lead, radioactive waste and other hazardous materials. They operate, read and maintain air monitoring and other sampling devices in confined and/or hazardous environments. They also safely sample, identify, handle, pack and transport hazardous or radioactive materials, and clean and decontaminate equipment, buildings and enclosed structures.
