Focus Four Hazards Training Requirements 
All lessons for the Focus Four Hazards are required to use the following terminal (TO) and enabling (EO) objectives: 

TO: Given current OSHA and industry information regarding construction worksite illnesses, injuries, and/or fatalities, the student will be able to recognize [fall, caught-in or between, struck-by, electrocution] hazards in construction. 

Specifically for each of the focus four, the student will be able to: 

EO 1: Identify major hazards 
EO 2: Describe types of hazards 
EO 3: Protect him/herself from these hazards 
EO 4: Recognize employer requirements to protect workers from these hazards 

Because these objectives are the expected student outcomes, trainers: 

1) May not vary from these objectives when planning the training session; and 
2) Must follow the participatory training model by applying effective training techniques; 
3) Must make sure the objectives are measured by testing the student's achievement.
