Hazards in the workplace can appear in different sizes, shapes and forms.
Everyone in the workplace must participate to minimize workers’ exposure to occupational hazards. Employers and employees must work together and take due diligence to recognize and understand known hazards in the workplace, as well as, implement policies and procedures to mitigate potential hazards.
