Topic Background:

OSHA requires that every workplace be free of recognized hazards that may result in worker injury and illness. In order to comply with this requirement, each workplace must perform a hazard evaluation . This evaluation needs to be ongoing, as workplace conditions often change, including the introduction of new materials, chemicals and equipment.

Workers are often unable to properly identify and categorize these hazards. Frequently, they are not able to reduce of mitigate these hazards due to lacvk of experience or lack of knowledge on how to clearly identify and classify workplace hazards.

It is therefore important that workers, managers and supervisors, as well as those responsible for safety are able to identify hazards in the workplace. They must also recognize that there may be resistance to hazard identification and mitigation for a number of reasons.

This webinar will assist personnel in understanding these concerns while performing meaningful and useful hazard identification procedures. Such procedures can help avoid accidents and reduce worker injuries.
