All work places experience hazards, but they occur in different forms depending on the operations within the workplace; the workplace accident within work places can occur as a result of electrical accidents, accidents from sharp objects, objects which may be falling from high places, inhalation or ingestion of some chemicals which are poisonous, noise pollution or any other dangerous situation within the workplace which may lead to accidents. The OSHA requirements have developed policies which ensure that every worker is protected from accidents by their respective employees within their workplaces. The safest protection to be provided to the employees against these hazards is achieved through the prevention of these hazards right from their sources (Stroz, 304). The high level protection can be obtained when the standards set by OSHA are well adhered to, it recommends control practices and management or reduction of these hazards to very low levels. Just to mention but a few, some of the examples of the standards set include; construction barriers should be installed between all the workers and the possible causes of accidents, what is categorized as the engineering control measures; the other category is the controls in the work practices, which involve the precautions such as a change in the manner in which the employees carry out themselves within their respective work places. However, it is worth noting that practices such as administrative controls, engineering control practices and measures may fail to provide the optimum protection needed. In such cases where these measures fail to work, it becomes the role of the employees to make available the equipment which are meant to provide the personal protection to the employees (PPE), and at the same time making sure that they are effectively used (Stroz, 305).
