Many organizations have various hazard identification programs in place. These can range from formal processes like design for safety reviews on new equipment or production processes to less formal processes like hazard hunts focused on employee engagement.
Some organizations track risk scores for work areas and monitor the improvement trends over time. Despite these efforts, organizations continue to experience incidents where the hazard was not recognized and contained.
Technical competence in safe work practices is important to protecting workers, but it is not enough. We must be able to see the hazard as well. Too many times, it is the incident itself that informs the organization that a hazard exists that was not seen or controlled despite the presence of technical competency.
Webinar attendees will be presented with a roadmap to improve their own hazard identification processes and an understanding of why being visually literate is a critical competency to identifying hazards in the workplace.
Attendees will learn:
The Four Steps to the hazard identification process and why they are important.
How to build competency to see the hazards that become so familiar we no longer see them.
How to gain organizational support to act on the hazards that are identified.
How to leverage metrics to understand progress and impact.
