Workplace Inspection & Hazard Recognition
An Inspection is a process for critically evaluating a workplace to identify and record potential hazards so that corrective actions may be taken before an accident occurs. A workplace inspection is a primary function for discovering facts that are important to preventing events that can threaten the safety of workers, and business profitability. This course is designed to help participants recognize, assess, and control safety and evaluate health hazards in their workplace.
