For a self-paced, guided learning experience
Duration: 1 hour
Employees working in hazardous conditions such as petroleum industry, healthcare or construction sites are exposed to numerous health problems. For instance, exposure to asbestos can cause respiratory diseases or inhalation of dangerous fumes can also lead to cancer.
Individuals in an organization will need to be trained to report incidents and health issues promptly so that they can be investigated and analyzed thoroughly. This helps provide a clear view of the risks and hazards that are faced by the employees at work.
For instance, if a painter falls from a height, a prompt reporting of this accident will help the organization to start investigations and thereby establish safety measures to prevent such falls in the future.
Incidents are categorized according to the extent of damage that they cause to health and life. An awareness of such incidents will help employees to take proper action when such an event occurs. Employees should also be aware of the procedures of reporting an accident so that it is reported accurately.
