Personal Protective Equipment – Up Armoring the Worker for the Workplace Battle Zone
The jobsite can be a dangerous place – everything from chemicals, and noise to flying particles and crushing impacts. When engineering controls cannot eliminate the hazard, the workers must be up-armored with personal protective equipment (PPE) to help keep them safe. This seminar will review:
- Illness and injury statistics in the United States
- US OSHA PPE regulations for general industry (e.g., 29CFR1910.132) and construction (e.g. 29CFR1926.100) along with US OSHA interpretations of commonly asked PPE questions.
- Workplace hazard assessments to determine the need and type of PPE
- PPE fundamentals
- Considerations when selecting PPE and implementing a PPE program
Registrations are closed for this event.
