Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Spectrum OSHA Training, Inc located in Chicago Surburb will now conduct 10-Hour and 30-Hour OSHA Safety Training On-Site and Monthly in different locations throughout Chicagoland.
OSHA requires that training be an essential part of every employer's safety and health program for protecting workers from injuries and illness.
No matter what the job is, all industrial employees need to know seven essential things about safely performing their work:
1. Hazards. Employees need to know what could go wrong on the job and cause injuries. The employees need to be able to identify hazards and must know the steps to take to protect themselves against these hazards. The employees also need to know how to correct or report unsafe conditions that could lead to an accident.
2. Safety rules and regulations that apply to the job. Workers should thoroughly be familiar with all the safety and health rules that apply to the job. If there are OSHA regulations that apply to the employee's job as well, these should be explained so that employees understand what need to be done to ensure compliance.
3. Required job skills and knowledge. Employees must know how to perform the jobs properly. This means having the skills and knowledge required to do a good, safe job.
4. Required PPE. For any task where PPE is required, employees must understand how to select, inspect, use, and maintain PPE. They should also understand the limitations of PPE and what to do with damaged or defective PPE.
5. Safety controls. If engineering controls, like ventilation or machine safeguards, are required for employees to perform the job safely, then the employees need to understand when and how these controls should be used. Administrative controls, like permits for confined spaces or time limits for working in areas with airborne chemical hazards, should be understood and complied with.
6. Proper ergonomics. Most industrial jobs involve some ergonomic risks. Employees should understand these risks and the safe work practices required to prevent physical stress, strain, and musculoskeletal disorders.
7. What to do if something goes wrong. Employees should know what to do in emergencies such as fires, chemical spills, and accidents involving injuries. Employees should also know to whom emergencies should be reported to.
