“On-the-job” injuries affect all types of people doing all types of work. Each year over 570,000 workers are injured… at a cost to employers of over $100 billion annually. Government surveys show that the most common cause of workplace injuries today is due to employees not using proper PPE. Virtually everyone will experience one or more “on the job” injuries during their working life. In most cases appropriate equipment is readily available, yet employees do not recognize the need for this equipment, or take the time to use it.
NSC’s training products on “Personal Protective Equipment” have been specifically created to assist facilities in complying with OSHA’s Standard on Personal Protective Equipment. Topics covered in these products include:
- Review of OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Standard.
- PPE for eye and face hazards.
- PPE for respiratory hazards.
- PPE for head hazards.
- PPE for foot hazards.
- PPE for electrical hazards.
- PPE for hand and finger hazards.
