Find Out More

There seems to be a countless number of hazards that construction workers face every single day. So what keeps these construction workers going home safely day after day?

 

Wearing the right PPE, or personal protective equipment, for the job they were performing. PPE is just anything you wear to help prevent injuries, including even the simplest of protective devices such as a hard hat or eye goggles. Of course, it is not just wearing PPE, but wearing the correct PPE and using it properly that increases your safety while on the job. Learn these key points in this course.

 

OSHA has created a list of standards regarding the use of PPE in order for workers to stay as safe as possible while on the job. These requirements include mandatory training by employers on why PPE is important and how to correctly use the PPE given. Employers must also provide the appropriate PPE for the jobs performed by their employees.

 

There are many kinds of PPE, including PPE for your face, head, feet, eyes, and even respiratory system, among others. Without the correct PPE, the likelihood of you being seriously injured, or worse, at work becomes significantly higher. You will be instructed on the different kinds of PPE here.

 

PPE varies from job to job. However, irrespective of the PPE used, there are overarching general requirements. For example, you must wear PPE when you work in a hazardous situation. These may include environmental hazards, mechanical irritants, and dangerous procedures. While unlikely, even radiological hazards could arise.

 

You need to be prepared when dealing with these risks, which is why PPE is required. The kinds required, as well as an explanation of what these hazards entail, will be given to you here. Utilize the information presented in this course and gain an understanding of both the importance of using PPE, as well as the know how to select which PPE to use in a given situation. This course helps ensure that you too avoid injury and go home safely when your shift is over.

"Ving Understands What Safety Managers Need to Improve Training"

One of the biggest problems I've had with safety training platforms is making the training easily accessible on mobile job sites, making it easy to upload in-house training, and technical issues with outdated software. All of those problems have been solved by Ving. It's well-thought-out and easy-to-use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the QR code option. For example, you can print a QR code sticker that explains how to inspect fire extinguishers and post it next to the extinguisher so anyone doing monthly inspections isn't guessing based on training that was six months ago. They can review the training immediately.
