This three-week webinar series will cover biological hazards that may be encountered in a wide variety of workplaces. There are thousands of OSHA recordable injuries and illnesses that result from contact with poisonous plants, biting and stinging insects, venomous reptiles, and feral mammals. Many of these incidents have drastic consequences for workers, their families, and their employers. Currently, these issues are not widely regulated and training for health and safety professionals is scant. This webinar series seeks to fill that gap. It will apply the standard industrial hygiene rubric of recognize, evaluate, and control to these hazards and will assist safety and health professionals with preventing and responding to incidents involving biological hazards.
After this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Recognize, evaluate and control biological hazards in workplaces,
- Identify many species of potentially hazardous plants, insects, and reptiles,
- How to manage these hazards in the workplace
