16-hour EM 385-1-1 USACE Safety & Health

Course Description Course Description

This course is for every contractor and their employees working on sites using EM385 regulations. Training on the specific requirements must be done in order to ensure compliance. EM385-1-1, the Engineers Manual released by the US Army Corps of Engineers, outlines the standards that must be followed to ensure the safest possible worksite on military and other projects. Learn how it differs from CFR 1910 and 1926 regulations, and what additional steps must be taken by your team to ensure a safe worksite.

Since noncompliance with EM385 regulations can carry heavy fines on the job site, it is important that each team member gets the proper training. This 16-hour course is 100% online, and provides all the training needed for an employee that is in a non-supervisory role. We are pleased to offer group discounts for this course.
