Format: Webinar

Description:

An employer’s disciplinary program is an often-overlooked, yet critical part of its safety program. To comply with OSHA’s safety standards, you must be able to show that you have implemented a documented enforcement strategy.

If you have no enforcement strategy in place and are cited by OSHA, it will be nearly impossible to demonstrate a lack of “knowledge” or use the “unpreventable employee misconduct/isolated incident” defense, exposing you to the risk of costly penalties.

On the other hand, discipline that appears to be retaliatory or connected to injuries and accidents may also subject an employer to citations and penalties, as well as to compensatory and punitive damages. So, it’s crucial for employers to get it right when it comes to enforcing safety rules in the workplace.

Join us when presenter, Gary Visscher, a seasoned safety lawyer who has helped many companies design and implement effective safety enforcement programs, will provide a roadmap for developing and implementing an effective, compliant disciplinary strategy.

Learning Objectives:

  • What recent approaches OSHA has taken when inspecting and evaluating a company’s disciplinary program
  • How to write a comprehensive, clear, and fair disciplinary policy for safety infractions that can stand up to OSHA scrutiny
  • The key components that must be included in your disciplinary policy and best practices for effective implementation
  • How to best communicate the disciplinary program to key groups, especially line supervisors and employees
  • How to generate support and participation from all levels of the organization as you implement your disciplinary program

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
