Eye & Face Protective Equipment training-Background
Workplaces may have many different hazards, that can cause injuries to eyes and the face. Some of these could be extremely traumatic and cause permanent disabilities. Some may even be life threatening to workers. To protect workers from these, it is essential to use appropriate forms of eye and face protective equipment. This may include safety eye wear such as glasses, safety goggles, eye guards, face protectors such as face shields/face shield masks and similar equipment.
In the US, OSHA guidelines deal with the employer’s duties as regards provision of the right personal safety equipment (for example eye PPE items such as hard hat face shields), to all workers, as well as the eye protection safety training to be given to them.
Why you should get this course?
Employers are responsible to ensure that all their workers, always work in a safe environment , since health and safety at work, is an important aspect of many regulations and laws. The listed PPE standards, as given in the local regulations must be met. Employers not only should ensure that workers use the correct eye and face protection (such as ppe eyewear like safety glasses or face ppe such as welding eye protection face shields) while working but also provide appropriate PPE training. This training program satisfies the requirement easily.
If you are an employer, then subscribing to this e-learning course, easily meets your obligations of having to conduct safety training programs for your employees, that cover usage of PPE online. Get this course and then grant access to every employee that needs to be trained in Personal Protective Equipment.
By doing this, you not only have an easy way of delivering this training to hundreds or thousands of your employees anywhere across the state, country or world, almost instantly. All enrolled learners can get trained via their own devices including tablet computers, PCs, Macbooks, laptops and smartphones at any time or location of their choice.
How do employers benefit from this?
Many regulatory authorities, such as OSHA in the US and other similar agencies in a country have requirements of mandatory ppe compliance training for employees in workplaces. This Abhisam compliance e-learning course fulfills this requirement completely because it is made as per OSHA guidelines related to eye protection.
Before such eye and face ppe courses became available, the prior option that an employer had, was to hand out a personal protective equipment pdf having a ppe list, to employees and ask them to read it. Or to make them watch eye safety videos. However, evaluating and tracking whether anyone has actually understood the personal protective equipment list and the individual ppe guidelines in it (or for that matter the eye safety video), will be a massive project, that will waste valuable time of your HR guys, as well as your Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) guys. This is completely unnecessary and you can simply subscribe to the eye and face protection e-learning course.
The employer now has the option to have a complete training record for enrolled employees, who took the eye ppe training course (we will give you a report of all learner actions such as login times, training modules accessed and the exam test scores). This easily meets your compliance requirements, especially if you have hundreds or thousands of employees at different locations.
Our learning management system is built on a robust e-learning platform that can handle thousands of learners easily.
How do employees benefit?
All employees are duty bound by laws in most countries, to get trained in the use of adequate personal protection including that used for eye protection and face protection. This eye and face protection e-learning course, is an easy way to meet this requirement. Employees can take it while at home, or commuting as a passenger (but not if they are driving themselves), since access is through any standard device such as a laptop, PC, smartphone or tablet. They can access it from any place in the world that has an internet connection. Physical presence in a particular location at a particular time is not needed and this is a big advantage over traditional mandatory ppe training.
After you complete the eye and face ppe e-learning course, you can take the exam associated with it and on passing, earn an electronic badge/electronic certificate, that demonstrates that you took the eye protection training / face protection training and passed it.
