The life of every human being is precious. Yet due to negligence and improper safety measures, thousands of workers die each year in the construction industry alone. To minimize or eliminate casualties and fatalities, OSHA requires employers to protect their employees from workplace hazards through proper and effective engineering or work practice controls. When these controls are not feasible, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is required.
It is the employer's responsibility to assess the workplace hazards. If they are present or likely to be present and work practice controls alone are not sufficient, then the employer must provide personal protective equipment to the exposed employees. This course gives you a basic understanding of OSHA's role in the prevention and elimination of work-related casualties and fatalities.
