Occupational accidents and work-related diseases cost billions of dollars in lost productivity every year. If your employees face workplace hazards, you need to know the risks. UL EHSS has the training content you need to keep workers healthy, safe, and on-the-job.
Our Awareness modules are 15-20 minute overviews of each topic.
Each year, more than 200 deaths and 5,000 injuries result from fires and explosions in the workplace. The National Fire Protection Association reported over 115,000 non-residential structural fires in a recent year, accounting for $2.4 billion in direct property damage. Those are the losses due to fires, but there are other hazardous situations that can threaten a worker's life and limb. These include severe weather, medical emergencies, chemical release, and bomb threats. We can't completely eliminate dangerous workplace situations, but we can reduce the number of associated injuries and deaths attributable to these incidents. This course will focus on two important aspects of this effort: egress and emergency action plans.
An arc flash can generate a temperature of up to 19,000 degrees Celsius (35,000 degrees Fahrenheit)!
