A Guide to the Big Four Safety Hazards in Industry
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the proper approach to assessing the workplace environment for hazards and their remedies. It presents the most important recommendations and how to apply them to the situation at hand. Through the completion of this course, an employer or manager can determine what actions are necessary to reduce the risk of employee exposure to these hazards.


There are four main hazards associated with industrial work: fall, electrical, struck-by, and caught-in. These hazards are known to cause injuries and fatalities in the workplace. It is important to train managers and employees on how to identify, avoid, and remedy these risks in the workplace. When employees are trained for these hazards, the potential for injuries, fatalities and the liability to the employer are all decreased.


This 1 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, designers, contractors, construction workers and other professionals interested in understanding the four main hazards that may appear in the workplace and how to better prepare to identify and correct those hazards.
