Finding and fixing hazards should be a process that is continuous as the potential for hazards in the workplace will always exist. Making the process proactive and systematic will ensure your commitment
to a safe workplace. OSHA offers injury logs and worker’s compensation records as tools to aid management and employees in identifying and correcting hazards that present risk to worker’s health. Hazard Control is important to ensure everyone goes home safely at the end of the day.

Discussion Points:
• OSHA Standards and Resources
• Employee Orientation and Annual Training
• Employee Participation and Communication
• Identifying Workplace Hazards and Risks
• Safety Control Measures

Walk around the facility and identify existing or potential hazards that present risk to worker’s health. Evaluate the hazards identified, and discover the causes. Implement corrective actions, and follow up and monitor by performing routine inspections. Workers participation improves communication between employees and management, and increases attention and awareness in promoting workplace safety.
