Personal Protective Equipment
This online engineering PDH course addesses Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) types, selection and training, as well as conducting a hazard assessment of the workplace.
Hazards exist in every workplace in many different scenarios: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. Controlling a hazard at its source is the best way to protect employees. Depending on the hazard or workplace conditions, OSHA recommends the use of engineering or work practice controls to manage or eliminate hazards to the greatest extent possible. Therefore, OSHA developed the Personal Protection Equipment Standard to protect employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury.
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, employers, building owners, facility managers, and all personnel working on construction projects.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the types of personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Knowing the basics of conducting a "hazard assessment" of the workplace
- Selecting the appropriate PPE for a variety of circumstances
- Understanding what kind of training is needed for the proper use and care of PPE
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review OSHA 3151-12R, "Personal Protective Equipment".
