About This Course s-mod-info

OSHA's workplace incident data indicate that a significant portion of all work-related injuries and fatalities involve workers being struck in the eyes, head, face, hand, and or feet by foreign objects. For example, it has been estimated that as many as 2,500 eye injuries occur in the workplace every working day. Personal protective equipment (PPE) protects you, your co-workers, and your livelihood when hazards are present in the workplace. This course covers the use of personal protective equipment in a construction setting. Main topics include general OSHA PPE requirements, eye and face protection, foot protection, hand protection, and head protection.


This course is intended for all construction workers and supervisors potentially exposed to hazards to the head, eyes, hands, and feet.
