Documentation in the safety and health field is critical but can also create evidence that can trigger OSHA/MSHA penalties that can reach $500,000 or more... or even millions if a serious accident is involved. In addition, the Department of Labor is prosecuting more "whistleblower violations" in the safety & health field, which means that special investigators will comb through HR records, disciplinary reports and other materials looking for incriminating information. This presentation will discuss a wide spectrum of written (and electronic) materials that can give rise to prosecution, and how to successfully manage these documents and - where possible - cover them with legal privilege to avoid discovery. Proactive strategies on developing the right documents, utilization of experts and how their documents should be handled, and discussion of recent case law affecting the government's right to access insurance reports and other non-mandatory documents all will be covered.

This webinar, “100% Compliance With OSHA Recordkeeping – Anything Less Will Be Costly” presented by Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., co-chair of the Workplace Safety and Catastrophe Management Practice Group at Fisher & Phillips LLP and former Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, will examine the many recordkeeping pitfalls that employers face, especially those with multiple locations. The program will cover how to coordinate your injury and illness recordkeeping with other recordkeeping requirements and how employers can effectively use recordkeeping to improve their current safety and health management program. Recommended resources include: OSHA Small Business Handbook https://www.osha.gov/Publications/smallbusiness/small-business.html and OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping Reporting Requirements https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html
The perfect storm is looming and companies will have to change how they look at their health and safety programs to ensure integration of bottom line objectives with their overall employee and workplace health, safety and well-being goals. Today, most companies’ health protection programs are separated from health promotion programs. The two programs are from two drastically different organizational divisions and schools of thought and; as such, impedes their effectiveness to maximize the overall health and productivity of the workforce.
This session will review the safety and health issues facing employers in dealing with the changing workforce and why developing a total solutions approach to safety, health and wellness will be critical to every employer’s business survival. This will require us to explore how the best companies have created a culture where everyone feels responsible for identifying, reporting and reducing potential risks that greatly improve their ability to take proactive corrective action before anything bad happens.
In a 2013 survey by Bersin by Deloitte, 57% of HR professionals said they plan to purchase new software within the next 18 months. Some of these buyers are bound to face a few challenges during the implementation phase. For many more, the real challenge will begin after the software goes live: getting teammates — and, in many cases, the employee population at large — to actually use the software.
Whether you’re purchasing new HR software or seeking to enhance utilization of your current solutions, we’ll address seven of the most important factors that increase user adoption. During this webinar you’ll learn the following three things and more:
How high adoption ensures a positive ROI and enhances HR’s credibility as an information hub
How involving employees in compensation, career development and learning initiatives help increase adoption
Why the whole point of HR software is to help you improve the ways you serve your organizations
RESULTS! Every organization strives to produce results. Quantifiable results measured in a multitude of ways. Some organizations consistently achieve those results and others consistently miss the mark. Safety is one of those results and it is produced through clear, effective leadership at the front-lines of your organization. Do your front-line leaders have the knowledge and skills to produce the result of safety through others? Or do they depend on the rules and a lot of luck to make it through the day? This program looks at how occupational safety results produced are driven by three critical elements of success: our values, our behaviors, and our culture.
There is an ongoing debate about how and when to use punishment and discipline procedures when an injury occurs. This webinar will discuss what behavioral science research tells about using punishment when an injury occurs and the impact on the organization's culture. A behaviorally sound deifintion or punishment will be provided and this will be compared against common discipline procedures to determine if they are effectively used to change behavior. Strategies for using consequences effectively to influence safety related behaviors will be described. Considerations for creating a safety culture that encourages honest reporting, strong relationships, and clear expectations will be discussed.
