Date

Location/Description

Where: National Safety Council, 11620 M Circle, Omaha, NE 68137
The Energy Wheel is a simple, yet effective way to improve worker hazard recognition. This method focuses the worker's attention on the various types of energy present in the workplace rather than randomly attempting to identify workplace hazards. Research has shown that by using this technique, hazard recognition rises significantly, even among novice workers. When workers are able to recognize hazards; appropriate interventions can be taken to reduce or mitigate accident potential. This workshop will introduce participants to the principles and research behind the Energy Wheel but will mainly focus on how to successfully use and implement the Energy Wheel Hazard Assessment tool.
