PERRP alerts, fact sheets, checklists
The Public Employment Risk Reduction Program provides alerts, fact sheets and checklists to help keep public employees safe

PERRP safety alerts

PERRP Safety Alerts (PSAs) provide important information about risk factors that can cause public employee injuries or deaths in Ohio. Each PSA outlines ways to reduce or eliminate risks that could contribute to work related accidents. The PSAs cover training, proper work practices and control measures necessary to reduce the risk of serious injury.

PSAs are not a standard or regulation, and they create no new legal obligations. PSAs are advisory in nature, informational in content, and are intended to assist public employers in providing a safe and healthful workplace.

PERRP fact sheets and checklists
