Personal Protective Equipment: Tips For Assessing Workplace Hazards And Ensuring Compliance With New OSHA PPE Requirements
|Date / Time:
||5/31/2017 / 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern
Safety professionals are expected to perform a comprehensive hazard assessment to identify potential workplace hazards and also identify appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) that can keep employees safe and healthy. But it’s not an easy task.
A complete hazard assessment can help you develop programs to protect employees and ensure compliance with OSHA standards. An assessment provides you with information to determine which PPE may be required for any given job in which a hazard can’t be addressed through engineering or administrative controls. Certain PPE is also a part of complying with OSHA’s walking-working surfaces, silica and beryllium final rules.
Join us for an in-depth webinar led by seasoned safety lawyer Adele Abrams. During the session, she will discuss best practices for performing a comprehensive hazard assessment and will teach you methods for selecting cost-effective PPE to protect employees and ensure compliance.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
