Feet Protection training-Background
Personal protective equipment (PPE for short) should be used to protect workers from hazards present in workplaces. Good engineering design and proper administrative controls may reduce the extent of workplace hazards, but may not completely eliminate them. One of the most common workplace injuries today are foot injuries. Foot protection in the workplace is very important.
Our feet are a very important part of our body. They help us be mobile and run, walk or sprint on any kinds of terrain. Sometimes they also help us operate machinery such our own vehicles like cars, where we operate the brakes and accelerator by our feet. Foot protection safety is very important, which protect our feet from workplace injuries. We must use foot protection ppe for this.
This includes safety footwear such as safety shoes, safety boots and so on.
All employers are supposed to provide proper personal protective equipment (PPE for short) to their employees who are subjected to workplace hazards. This includes ppe boots and safety shoes for foot protection. OSHA regulations in the US stipulate that employers must also provide feet protection training to their employees, in addition to providing them ppe for it. Similar regulations exist in other countries too.

What benefits does the employer get?
OSHA in the US and other similar regulatory authorities in any country, do require ppe compliance training for workplaces. This compliance e-learning course meets this requirement.
In earlier days, the employer could meet such training requirements by the handing over of a personal protective equipment pdf document, or a ppe list to employees, for awareness about foot protection, but mere delivering of bare bones training in such a fashion, did not fully meet legal requirements. Authorities began asking for training records, to prove that the employees did receive adequate training. This was difficult to manage.
Today however, if your employees take the Abhisam Feet Protection training, then you get the option to get a complete training record for employees who took the training (we will give you a record of the course accessed, login date and time spent, test scores,etc). This reduces your difficulty of maintaining such records manually. It is a great feature if you have multiple employees at multiple locations.
