Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) To Reduce Workers' Comp Claims

Webinar: ID# 1041356
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
OSHA requires its inspectors to review the employer's Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) hazard assessment and to evaluate effective use and training.

In the Biden administration, more attention is paid to occupational health issues and exposure to substances including crystalline silica, hexavalent chromium, lead, asbestos, and physical hazards such as falls and noise exposure.

OSHA is also in the process of revising its Hazard Communication Standard to adopt a new version of the UN's Global Harmonization System, which will require Safety Data Sheet revisions to evaluate new PPE needs and worker training. The agency is also developing a rule to ensure that all workers are provided with appropriately fitting PPE regardless of gender, ethnicity, or race.

PPE also raises some issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act which, in many cases, must be accommodated by employers.

This presentation will provide employers and workers with the information they need to meet OSHA PPE obligations and go beyond minimum compliance in protecting workers.What You'll Learn:Overview
