Physical, Chemical & Industrial Hazard Control

Course Overview:

     Identifying and controlling workplace hazards involves many processes. It’s more than simply “inspecting out hazards.” Before we can effectively control hazardous conditions and unsafe behaviors, we need to be familiar with their characteristics and the necessary processes to make sure they are promptly identified and analyzed. This practical training will give you an overview of the many types of hazards that may exist in the workplace. Moreover, the training will take you through the relevant questions and exercises to help you become more familiar with hazard control concepts to increase the safety of your organization. The questions and exercises in this program will help you become more familiar with hazard control concepts and the many types of hazards that may exist in the workplace. The various elements of an effective hazard control program, the nature of hazards in the workplace will be addressed.

     This course will ensure awareness and promote safety among employees who may be exposed to Physical, Chemical & Industrial hazards in the work-site. The objective is to ensure that employees operate in the safest possible manner in situations where contact with potentially hazardous materials is likely.

 

The program will cover the following main subjects

               • What the law says

               • How to carry out the identification

               • How to assess each hazard

               • How and when to use specialists

               • Controls - four ways to do something

               • Monitoring your hazard controls and employee exposures

               • Records - what forms to use

               • Resource lists for your assistance

              • Hazard reporting system

 

Course Main Objectives:

               • Explore the elements of an effective hazard identification and control program.

               • Discuss the steps in the hazard identification and control process.

               • Complete the hazard identification and control worksheet.

               • Conduct systematic hazard identifications

               • Methodically review hazard assessments and controls

               • Provide an ongoing hazard reporting system

               • Monitor hazard controls and employee exposures to hazards

On completion of this course the Participants will learn about:    

               • Understand how Industrial hazardous materials are handled, identified, and

                  human responses to exposure

               • Learn the importance of the Health and Safety Plan (HSP)

               • Incorporate knowledge of what to do in case of site emergencies

               • Use appropriate safety methods and work practice controls

               • Recognize signs and labels that are used to alert personnel of danger involving

                  hazardous material

               • List in order the common steps performed during a hazard assessment.

               • Describe the purpose of PPE.

Who Should Participate:

     This course is for professionals directly responsible for the health, safety, and security of employees and the work environment. New and experienced health and safety professionals will benefit from a comprehensive review of the technical skills required for Physical, Chemical & Industrial Hazard Control. Industrial hygiene and safety program leaders will become more accustomed to the challenges facing professionals and become more effective managers of those with technical expertise in this functional area. Professionals with the following roles and responsibilities are encouraged to attend:

               • Environmental health

               • Facilities management

               • Human resources

               • Industrial/occupational hygiene

               • Management of health, safety, security, or industrial hygiene programs

               • Occupational health and medicine

               • Safety

               • If you are an employer, manager, supervisor, member of the Health and

                 Safety Committee, or you are required to carry out or assist with hazard

                 identification and control within the workplace.
