OHSA has debuted an interactive, online, game-based training tool for small business owners, workers and others interested in learning the core concepts of hazard identification. After using this tool, users will better understand the process to identify hazards in their own workplace.

This tool is intended to:

(1) Teach small business owners and their workers the process for finding hazards in their workplace,

(2) Raise awareness on the types of information and resources about workplace hazards available on OSHA’s website.

Currently, the user can choose between three different scenarios: "OSHA Visual Inspection Training", "Manufacturing Facility" and "Construction". To view specific workplace operations, OSHA recommends playing the "OSHA Visual Inspection Training" scenario first. This scenario focuses on the visual inspection component to identify specific hazards as opposed to the larger hazard identification process.

In the "OSHA Visual Inspection Training" scenario, which contains a saw, industrial chemical mixer, scaffolding and fall protection for inspection; users learn how to identify hazards on items found in the workplace; become familiar with typical hazard categories; and understand common relationships of hazards to equipment components and operations.

OSHA Visual Inspection Training Game Play: The OSHA Visual Inspection Training offers the user an opportunity to practice a visual inspection and find hazards. In this scenario, the user can view equipment from 360° to look for hazards. The user can also talk to the employee and observe the employee at work to identify additional hazards. Once hazards are identified, the user checks the box in the log.

The simulator can be accessed here.
