Why Should You Take This Personal Protective Equipment Procedures Online Anytime Course?
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. 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. When engineering, work practice and administrative controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, employers must provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to their employees and ensure its use. Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to a variety of hazards.
Intended Audience: This course covers types of personal protective equipment, when personal protective equipment is necessary, and the selection, use, and maintenance of personal protective equipment in the workplace. Target Audience: Personnel working in fields that require PPE.
