So often safety committees become boring and ineffective. Some companies avoid them because of this reputation (the old saying: “When you don’t want anything done-form a committee!”). This webinar will focus on the characteristics of effective safety committees, and especially how they can be a part of overall OSHA compliance efforts. The content will be directed to not only managers, but also committee members, so that they can improve their personal contributions. Completion certificates will be available.

This is still a possibility, despite conservative federal agency administration. It is especially likely if your employee injury and severity incident rates exceed the national average! Employee complaints have triggered inspections at many companies. This webinar will review the step-by-step process of an inspection and review your rights as an employer in the process. (This is NOT the OSHA Top Ten Most Frequently Cited Webinar.) The discussion will focus on federal inspections. Some of the information is very similar for state-run OSHA programs.

Accident Investigation - Not Just a Reporting Process                                         

December 17, 2019

Audience: Owners and managers ONLY

Even seasoned company owners are surprised to find that accident investigation and accident reporting are NOT the same!  Most are simply reporting accidents. Also, many company owners do not realize that strong, accident investigation processes (by trained supervisors) can reduce the potential for workers’ compensation fraud significantly. This webinar will focus on what needs to happen to get to the root causes of property damage, employee injuries and even near misses. The identification of causes and the range of prevention strategies that should be implemented to prevent event reoccurrence will be presented.
