Identify and evaluate common workplace hazards and develop strategies to address those hazards.

Many employers strive to identify workplace hazards and evaluate risks but often fall short of OSHA’s stringent regulatory requirements. Identifying each and every workplace hazard, especially those hazards that aren’t readily apparent or obvious, is a difficult task. However, hazard identification is critically important, as it is the first step employers must take to control and prevent workplace hazards. Thus, it is important to get it right in the first instance. If an employer’s hazard assessment is inadequate, an employer could face various regulatory violations separate and apart from the inadequate assessment, including machine guarding, lockout/tagout, personal protective equipment, hazard communication, fall protection, and many more. Furthermore, in light of the COVID-19 global pandemic – the most hidden danger of them all, employee health and safety is in the spotlight and a focal point for all employers. Separate and apart from the hazards inherent to an employer’s workplace or jobsite, employers must implement measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19. This topic will provide employers with a comprehensive overview of how to recognize and address workplace hazards, including an overview of the most common hazards that remain a focal point for OSHA, such as personal protective equipment, walking-working surfaces, chemical safety, and electrical hazards under Subpart S. This information will also guide employers through the workplace assessment that should be done to specifically address COVID-19 and review the types of engineering and administrative controls and safe work practices that employers should consider implementing in their workplaces.
