NEW PROGRAMS TO EDUCATE EMPLOYEES ON FALL PROTECTION, BLOODBORNE PATHOGENS AND HYDROGEN SULFIDE


JULY 2014 – BELLEVILLE, ONTARIO – Three new programs have been released to educate employees on three different but equally important safety topics.

Fall Protection Case History was developed to help train employees in various industries and stresses the importance of fall arrest systems. It alerts viewers to the fact that falls can happen anywhere. It outlines the three key steps of a Fall Hazards Control Program: identifying hazards, using five kinds of fall hazard controls and reviewing such controls. The program also covers the three main components of a personal fall arrest system, and ends by reflecting on how a Fall Hazards Control Program could have prevented a real-life tragic fall.

Bloodborne Pathogens: Don’t Take the Risk will introduce employees to the different diseases caused by bloodborne pathogens, how to decrease the risk of becoming infected by these infectious microorganisms, and what to do if you come in contact with them. Topics covered include understanding the risks, lowering your risks, handling emergencies, exposure and follow-up.

Hydrogen Sulfide: Detect and Defend identifies the dangers of hydrogen sulfide and shows employees how to defend themselves against the hazards of exposure. It also describes how hydrogen sulfide is produced, its chemical properties and how to respond to its health and safety hazards. Hazard prevention strategies are identified and finally, the course shows how to avoid exposure by using personal protective equipment.

Produced by DuPont Sustainable Solutions, these programs are available in DVD and streaming media formats and are available through Electrolab Training Systems. Free previews are available by calling 1-800-267-7482 or emailing safety@electrolab.ca
