Hazards exist in every workplace: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and other potentially dangerous situations. As an employer you are required to protect employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury.

Controlling a hazard at its source by the use of work practice controls is the best way to protect employees.  When work practices and administrative controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, employers must provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to their employees and ensure correct use. Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to a variety of hazards. Examples of PPE include such items as gloves, foot and eye protection, protective hearing devices (earplugs, muffs) hard hats, respirators and full body suits.   This seminar will help both employers and employees do the following:

  • Understand the types of PPE
  • Know the basics of conducting a "hazard assessment" of the workplace.
  • Select appropriate PPE for a variety of circumstances.
  • Understand what kind of training is needed in the proper use and care of PPE.
  • Plus more including handout items that will help you comply with the OSHA standards and good work practices.
