Two safety and health professionals are debating an issue over lunch. “Hard hats don`t really do any good because employees won`t wear them. It`s like dieting. The best diet in the world won`t work if you don`t follow it.” “I don`t agree,” said the second safety professional.” Hard hats have prevented thousands of head injuries. If employees don`t wear them, it`s because managers don`t enforce their own rules.”
Points of discussion:
- Join the debate and express your opinion about the importance of the PPE in the workplace.
- Discuss five ways through which managers can enforce the employees to use their hard hats.
- Identify any three types of hazards that could be prevented by wearing hard hats and discuss the way the hard hat can prevent it
