1 hr. Online Course

Level: Fundamental

Item#: OSHA10-4

SME: Dan Johnson, CSP (SFI Compliance Inc.)

Hazards in your workplace can be sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise, or many other potentially dangerous situations. OSHA requires all employers to protect their employees from workplace hazards, and when they can’t control a hazard at its source, they need to provide workers with accoutrements such as hard hats, gloves, respirators, goggles, safety shoes, and other gear to minimize the likelihood of a mishap. This module covers many common forms of PPE and how to choose it, wear it and care for it.
 
 

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers.  Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job.

Course Objectives
