Where can I find a description of construction types?
Are there any self study course available on building construction, and indicators of construction types?

Phillip, NFPA 1521 tells you what a Safety Officer is & what we do. Those standards are sometimes difficult to meet but we should always TRY to come up to par with them. I can recommend some classes for you; first is Fire Department Incident Safety Officer which is a good class for all firefighters to have. FIRE DEPARTMENT HEALTH & SAFETY OFFICER is a longer class that is more indepth. I can also HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Advanced Safety Operations Management from the National Fire Academy. Christopher has posted some really good references here & the Everybody Goes Home site is one of the best.

Being a safety officer doesn't mean you do rehab on scene or make sure everybody has his/her gear on & pass out water. There is more to it than some SOs realize or even the departments they are members of want to understand.

Here is another website that might interst you:
http://www.firerescue1.com/Columnists/Fire-Department-Safety-Officers-Association/

there are some good publications out there as well

good luck
