Dec 08, 2021

Sponsored by Grainger

 

Sponsored by Grainger. While it is encouraging that U.S. workplace incident and injury rates have continued to decline at a steady pace, the same cannot be said for serious injuries and fatalities. Identifying, assessing and controlling both actual and potential serious injuries and fatalities is a must for your organization to demonstrate its commitment to protecting its workforce.

What You Will Learn
  • Develop deeper understanding of the historical Heinrich safety triangle and the “new” safety triangle
  • Examine serious injury and fatality (actual and potential) and the role they play
  • Explain the importance of risk assessment
  • Distinguish controls and critical controls
