Course Summary:

Hazards exist in every workplace in many different forms: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers protect their employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury. Controlling a hazard at its source is the best way to protect employees. Depending on the hazard or workplace conditions, OSHA recommends the use of engineering or work practice controls to manage or eliminate hazards to the greatest extent possible. This course will help both employers and employees to do the following:

  1. Understand the types of PPE.
  2. Know the basics of conducting a hazard assessment of the workplace.
  3. Select appropriate PPE for a variety of circumstances.
  4. Understand what kind of training is needed in the proper use and care of PPE.
