The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers protect their employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury, such as sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise, and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. OSHA recommends the use of engineering or work practices as the preferred method for controlling hazards at their sources. But when engineering, work practice, and administrative controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, employers must provide PPE to their employees to minimize employee exposure to a variety of hazards. OSHA enforces these requirements under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 29.

This course is intended for engineers and project managers in the construction industry who 1) manage workers who are exposed to potentially injurious hazards, and who 2) desire a general understanding of OSHA's requirements for PPE.
