With an estimated 50 to 70 million Americans suffering from sleep disorders or insufficient sleep due to habits or chronic insomnia, the overall health of organizations is impacted. To address this need, Ceridian has partnered with the Harvard Medical School Institute of Sleep Medicine in the “Sleep Matters” initiative. This partnership is driven by research supporting a third pillar of health – sleep.
In this webinar, Dr. Stuart Quan from the Harvard Medical School Institute of Sleep Medicine will discuss:
The negative impact of sleep-deprived employees on productivity, sales and service performance and health care costs
The importance of creating organizational policies and practices to support good sleep health
Approaches for improving employee sleep health by offering health coaching and wellness programs
Best practices for educating employees on sleep health

You will discover the importance of having a positive attitude throughout the day based on scientific research findings, as well as how to promote good mood and healthy habits in the workplace.

Millions of us still groan at memories of schoolyard bullies who resorted to name-calling, threats and even violence to control others. But how many of us remember (and hopefully regret) BEING the teen or pre-teen bully? Meet Tom Gagliano, who admits to lashing out at and bullying his classmates and neighbors in his youth. What can he teach us to reduce bullying problems in your community, especially during this new school year? What inspired him to become a sought-after mentor and anti-bullying expert who facilitates men’s and women’s groups, as well as marriage consultations, explaining how to stop the bully mentality in the home?
Creating a knowledgeable team of individuals with a unified vision will enrich the joint health and safety committee’s (JHSC) contribution at your workplace and assist in breaking down barriers between management and workers. A committee also needs to communicate their role within the workplace by using their mission statement as their ‘brand’, gathering input from workers, and promoting OHS initiatives.
If you are trying to establish a committee, this session will outline basic requirements and tools for success.
If you are in the process of assessing your committee, you may be asking yourself if momentum stalled, or if you are stuck on small issues.
Yvonne will provide an overview of the tools you can use to review the structure of your committee and assess legislative compliance. Methods to improve internal communication and gather feedback will be discussed to assist you to re-establish the focus, culture and spirit of your committee at your workplace.
There is a renewed political and economic appetite to increase personal accountability for putting workers’ health and safety at risk and to hold directors responsible for such infractions with the threat of criminal penalties – including imprisonment. Such interest has predictably resulted in Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) practitioners receiving increased attention by leadership at most organizations.
The need to comply with overwhelming volume of legal obligations and frequent legislative updates tends to focus OEHS practitioners on the granular detail. The evolving landscape represents a significant opportunity for OEHS professionals to implement a model designed to deliver the level of excellence that can improve the overall business and enable good risk governance. At the same time, these practitioners can better address the challenge of reducing the administrative bottom line.
A truly effective OEHS management model incorporates sustainable excellence with social responsibility and risk governance. It also brings together an integrated wholeness of vital elements and enhanced performance of OEHS programs that increase productivity, reduces risk and liability, and protects business. The key components to OEHS governance include:
Assurance and Improvement
Framework and Systems
It is hard to find businesses that have this right mix from top down and bottom up arrangements. The following paper explores the factors that influence the relationship between sustainable excellence, social responsibility, and risk governance and how best to integrate the model in OEHS performance management.

Contractor safety is a significant issue because contract and contingent workers are disproportionately likely to be injured or killed on the job. The financial and legal risks for employers are also considerable. OSHA/MSHA can issue dual citations, depending on the circumstances present, injuries can result in tort litigation unless the worker can be classified as a borrowed employee or the company can be deemed the statutory employer. Increasingly, individual managers are also sued under the torts of negligence training or supervision. This program will discuss OSHA/MSHA and tort theories of liability, the IRS classification system, new data on the safety of contingent workers, and workers' compensation issues. It will also discuss how to proactively prequalify contractors, and coordinate training and other program activities to improve overall workplace safety.
This brief 15 minute session is the introduction to the two day event. There will be an overview of the sessions and speakers for the event, but more importantly, it will give you an overview of the IHR certification program and the progress we’ve made within the Institute. You will learn about the opportunity to become certified within the Health & Safety Institute and the other HR verticals that are available for either yourself or your colleagues. There will also be an introduction of the Institute's Advisory Board. You will be given guidance on how to chat online with colleagues and access the virtual exhibit hall. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions as it relates to the overall program, prior to its commencement. Even if you have attended one of our events in the past, we’d still encourage you to attend. If this is your first time attending an event, the introduction will provide you an overview of the certification program.
