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. An effective safety inspection program will improve worker communication, company morale and over time, save the employer money. This course is designed to help participants recognize, assess, and control safety and evaluate health hazards in their workplaces.

Workplace Safety Group completely re-designed this course to cover more than the basic workplace inspections. It provides up-to-date information on the OHSA and current knowledge of hazards and risks found in today's modern workplace.
