The worst types of hazards are the ones that sneak up on you. They're responsible for most of the three million injuries and illnesses and 4,500 deaths that OSHA says occur every year in the workplace. But they can be prevented when employers train their people to recognize and avoid hazards before they cause an accident. This process is called hazard recognition, and it's an effective way for you to improve safety in your facilities.
This program discusses various types of hazards and unsafe acts, explains the policies and procedures used in the hazard recognition process, and provides employees with the information they need to help make their facility a safer place to work.
