Overview

Starting a new job always gives you a lot to think about. You have new responsibilities, new policies and procedures, and new coworkers. While there may be a significant amount of information you need to absorb, you must not forget about workplace safety. After all, it only takes one momentary lapse in judgment for you to sustain a serious, or even fatal, injury. This safety training video explores some of the hazards you may encounter at your workplace, while providing safe work practices you can employ to help yourself and your coworkers avoid accidents and injuries.

Every workplace has some hidden hazards. A puddle on the floor or wearing the wrong kind of shoe could cause you to slip, and debris on the floor could cause you to trip and fall. Of course, workplaces with heavy machinery pose an entirely new set of hazards. You need to be able to use hand and power tools safely, and you also must be aware of your company’s Lock-Out/Tag-Out protocols. You must also be aware of the proper PPE, or personal protective equipment, for a given situation, as well as how to respond to, and prevent, fires. This course provides an overview of all these areas of workplace safety.

Your workplace may appear daunting when you first start, but the steps you can take to ensure your safety are straightforward and easily understood. These steps must be followed. After all, your safety, and the safety of those around you, is paramount. Utilize the information presented in this training lesson and learn how to increase your safety awareness while on the job.
