OHNs need to understand what to look for and how to do a Safety Walkthrough to identify workplace hazards facing employees in order to prevent occupational injuries and illnesses. Many OHNs have not had the opportunity to develop the skills needed to conduct a safety walkthrough. This is a must if the OHN is to determine the work-relationship of occupational injuries and illnesses.
Upon completion of this session, the learner will be able to:
- Identify occupational safety hazards and abatements
- Describe how to conduct a Safety Walkthrough
