HAZARD RECOGNITION AND JOB SAFETY ANALYSIS

HAZARD RECOGNITION AND JOB SAFETY ANALYSIS

The goal of this training course is to reduce injuries and improve worker safety in the industry. There are a variety of methods used to protect workers from workplace hazards, but all workplace injury prevention methods require an understanding and awareness of the workplace hazards to which workers may be exposed.

The company and the worker must be aware of a workplace hazard before that workplace hazard can be controlled.

  • Hazard Identification and techniques to help decide if something poses a hazard
