The job requires physical activities involving movement of the whole body, such as standing, kneeling, climbing, lifting, balancing, walking, and stooping. Activities often also require considerable use of the arms and legs, such as in the physical handling of materials. Using one's own hands and arms in handling, installing, forming, positioning, and moving materials, or in manipulating tools, including the use of keyboards, is a daily requirement. The employee may be required to keep and regain balance and lift heavy objects (in excess of 25 pounds) on a daily basis.
While performing the duties of this job, the employee is occasionally exposed to hazardous tools and equipment (e.g., cutters, shingle knives, hammers, drills, power saws, nail guns), moving mechanical parts, and vehicles. The position requires the employee to be exposed to high places (e.g., heights exceeding eight feet on ladders, poles, scaffolding, and structures). The noise level in the work environment is usually moderate to loud. Work typically occurs outdoors and exposes the employee to heat, cold, moisture, wind, and direct sunlight.

Training and Development Plan
1 Background information
According to Choudhry et al, the construction industry is exposed to greater work related safety risks compared to players in other industries (12). This is attributed to the nature of the job. Construction involves scaling heights, excavating, beam construction, slab related works, electrical and plumbing works (Mohamed, 23). Construction site visitors, pedestrians, employees and the general public are constantly staring at glaring safety risks when they access or work at construction sites (Zou et al, 67). These risks include injuries from moving objects, slips, falls, and exposure to harmful substances, noise pollution and even collapse of trenches (Choudhry et al, 17). Subsequently, the management and construction workers need to take safety measures seriously.
Alliah Construction is a midsized company with branches in five different states in the United States of America. This firm has encountered numerous site accidents with the most recent ones taking place within a span of one month. These accidents inflicted serious injuries on three employees exposing the lack of a proper safety plan and safety culture at this construction site. Unfortunately, it took these three severe calamities to give the firm’s management a realization and importance of developing and implementing a safety plan.
