Work Hazard

While working in an office doesn't keep you safe


from work-related physical problems such as
carpal tunnel syndrome or repetitive strain
injuries, people who work in construction,
manufacturing plants, maritime operations,
general industry and warehouses often face
greater risks because of the hazardous materials
and equipment they work with.

Work Hazard

Safety Programs
Even

though OSH standards require


employers to train workers to handle
equipment safety, not all do, which puts
you at a disadvantage.

What is Personal Protective


Equipment?
PPE

is equipment that will protect the


user against health or safety risks at
work.

It is use to minimize exposure to


serious workplace injuries and illnesses.

Personal Protective Equipment

Why is PPE important?


Making the work place safe includes providing
instruction, procedures, training and supervision to
encourage people to work safely and responsibly.
Even where engineering controls and safe systems
of work have been applied, some hazards might
remain. The include injuries to:
-to the lungs,
-head and feet,
-skin
-and the body

Workplace Inspection

Companies

that don't encourage regular


workplace inspections for safety hazards
also place their workers at a
disadvantage. When employees become
too familiar with their jobs, they often
forget to keep safety uppermost in their
minds.

OSH Inspection
As

a manager or an employee, you can


ask OSH to inspect your workplace if
you think your employer doesn't provide
a safe one. Under federal law, an
employer can't retaliate against you for
reporting problems or issues to OSH.
