Webinar: ID# 1023848
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
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.

You’ll discover:
  • The benefits of performing a PPE Hazard assessment, including OSHA compliance
  • The recommended procedure for conducting a hazard assessment
  • Who to involve in your hazard assessment
  • How to use assessment results to select appropriate PPE
  • Best practices for ensuring that employees are using the correct PPE
