This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to provide a general safety awareness orientation. This training will teach that safety is everyone's responsibility. Remember the motto: "Do it safely, or don't do it!" Thanks to SCDOT and IDOT for their contributions to this training. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I and II. This course is primarily intended for inspectors and technicians.

Prevention of injury and safeguarding health is the responsibility of everyone - both management and employee. The safety and health of employees is the overriding concern in all phases of operations.
