Hazard Recognition Techniques That Deliver Measurable Results
Accidents don't just happen. Accidents occur when workers fail to recognize hazards or use bad judgment when they suspect a hazard exists.
The question for safety professionals is how do you get workers to spot, assess and control hazards -- and bring them to everyone's attention -- before someone gets hurt?
Fact is, even in facilities with outstanding safety management systems, hazard recognition can be improved. Why, because hazard management is an ongoing process, not an event.
This audio conference program can help you put that process in place or improve the system you already have. It's a must for safety professionals who believe in continuous improvement.
