You have just been hired by a new company and today is your first day. The first thing you need to think about are the hazards of your new workplace and how to protect yourself. Hazards can come from a variety of sources, including confined spaces, moving parts on machinery, chemical, bloodborne pathogens, fires, and others. These dangers could cause serious injury or death if not controlled or avoided, and even though you are a new employee, you must be aware of them and how to protect yourself from them. This training video gives you a brief overview of the most common hazards in a general industry workplace.

As a new employee, your company’s top priority is to keep you safe, healthy, and injury free. However, you must also take responsibility for your own safety as well. For example, one of your most important responsibilities is to wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment, or PPE. Without the proper PPE, you face a much higher likelihood of serious injury or death while performing your job-related duties. You must also be aware of certain safety procedures, such as Lockout/Tagout, designed to keep you safe. This course overviews safe work practices related to PPE, HAZCOM, housekeeping, confined space awareness, and more.

Your work can be a dangerous place, and even more so as a new hire unfamiliar with its unique risks. Therefore, it is vital you become familiar with these dangers, as well as proper safety techniques. Utilize the materials provided here to understand the risks you may face while on the job, as well as how to protect yourself from them, thus enabling you to be safer while on the job.
