How to Identity and Correct Common Workplace Hazards Before Someone Gets Hurt

OnDemand Webinar (54 minutes)

Learn best practices to help you avoid potential tragedies caused by common hazards. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of worker deaths and reported injuries in the United States has decreased by more than 60 percent in the past four decades since the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) was passed. However, every year, more than 5,000 workers are killed on the job (a rate of 14 per day), and more than 3.6 million suffer a serious job-related injury or illness. One of the root causes of workplace injuries, illnesses, and incidents is the failure to identify or recognize hazards that are present, or that could have been anticipated. A critical element of any effective Safety and Health program is a proactive, systematic process to identify and assess such hazards.
