MARCOM's Video On Demand (VOD) program on Personal Protective Equipment training products are specifically designed to help employers meet OSHA requirements. They provide employees with the information that they need to avoid injury on the job by using the appropriate PPE. On-the-job injuries affect all types of people doing all types of work. And virtually everyone will experience at least one of them at some point in their life. These accidents cost employers more than $100 billion every year. Since most workplace injuries result from the workers not wearing proper personal protective equipment (PPE), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide and maintain appropriate PPE for their people, and train them on how to use it. Areas included in the program include an overview of the OSHA regulations involving PPE, head protection, eye and face protection, respiratory protection, hand protection, foot and leg protection and more.
- Upon completing the course, employees should:
- Be able to identify various types of commonly used personal protective equipment (PPE).
- Understand how PPE can protect them from specific hazards on the job.
- Know how to adjust and maintain PPE so it gives them maximum protection.
