Hazard Recognition: Identifying the Hidden Dangers in Your Workplace

June 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

REGISTER

National Safety Month – Keep your Team Protected.

We kick off National Safety Month by looking at how to establish a process that emphasizes the importance of safety and health and sets in place safety leadership.

The most common causes of workplace injuries, illnesses and incidents is the failure to identify or recognize hazards that are present, or that could have been anticipated. A critical element of any effective safety and health program is a proactive, ongoing process to identify and assess such hazards.

  • OSHA’S 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards
  • Typical mistakes employers make regarding LOTO, machine guarding, respiratory protection, hazard communication, and powered industrial trucks
  • National Emphasis Programs (NEPS) that enable OSHA to inspect your workplace even when nobody complained, and nobody was seriously hurt
