A workplace hazard poses potential for harm. Workplace injuries and illnesses can be prevented by looking at workplace operations, establishing proper job procedures and ensuring that all employees are trained properly. Identifying hazards and eliminating or controlling them as early as possible will help prevent injuries and illnesses. A hazard assessment or job hazard analysis is a technique that focuses on identifying hazards before they occur. Hazard assessment focuses on the relationship between the worker, the task, the tools and the work environment.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced Sept. 24 that it will publish a final overtime rule, setting the minimum salary threshold for overtime eligibility at $35,568. The regulations implement the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)'s overtime mandate and, according to a senior DOL official, will make an estimated 1.3 million additional U.S. workers eligible for overtime pay. The final rule will be effective Jan. 1.

OSHA 30-Hour Construction safety course is intended for supervisors or for workers with some safety responsibility. It provides a greater depth and variety of training on an expanded list of topics associated with workplace hazards than the TEXO Safety First class. Topics include: recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention of safety and health hazards found in the workplace.
  
This is an instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until emergency medical services arrives. Skills covered in this course include first aid for sudden illnesses, injuries and protection from blood-borne pathogens; choking relief and sudden cardiac arrest for adults. This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in CPR and AED use to meet job, regulatory or other requirements.
