Who says safety has to be boring? OSHA has created an interactive online game designed to help employers be more aware of potential hazards in their workplaces.
OSHA’s Hazard Identification Training Tool is a fun way for small business owners, workers, and others to learn the core concepts of hazard identification. After using this tool, users will better understand the process to identify hazards in their own workplace.
This tool is intended to:
(1) Teach small business owners and their workers the process for finding hazards in their workplace
(2) Raise awareness on the types of information and resources about workplace hazards available on OSHA’s website
Note: Keep in mind that OSHA inspections and possible citations and penalties for violation of OSHA regulations are not part of this tool — it’s designed to bring awareness but not substitute for a customized safety program. Employers and workers must consult the applicable OSHA standards for the specific requirements applicable to their workplaces when developing and implementing their own hazard identification program.
