The Construction Focus Four Training consists of lesson plans on each of the Focus Four Hazards. Each lesson plan was developed based on specific learning objectives. Trainers must use these learning objectives when planning the training, and follow the participatory training model when conducting the training. This includes applying effective training techniques. Trainers may utilize the tests provided to measure each student’s knowledge of the learning objectives. Please note that testing is not required and must not be counted toward the required student contact hours.
