Description:

If your records came under scrutiny by OSHA, MSHA, or your state’s equivalent, could they withstand examination by inspectors trained to spot compliance mistakes? And, if the records were being used to tell a story to a jury in a negligence or workers’ compensation case, how would they be interpreted?

Federal and state safety agencies require companies to maintain many different types of safety records, and safety managers need to be proactive in creating other forms of safety documentation, such as audits and JHAs, near miss reports, and root cause analyses. With so many records to track, minor recordkeeping mistakes can easily occur, which can lead to major consequences down the road.

When it comes to safety recordkeeping, having the right records on file is only half of the story. You must ensure the information contained in those records meets OSHA and other regulatory requirements and that your document storage and destruction practices pass legal muster. It’s also important to be proactive and review your strategy for creating and retaining safety records to gauge whether a reviewing agency could potentially use your actions as fuel for civil or criminal prosecution. Finally, it is critical to understand legal privileges that may be available to you for documents, and how to preserve privilege.

Join us when Adele Abrams, a skilled OSHA attorney and highly reputable safety professional, will reveal the top mistakes safety managers make regarding their documentation that can land you in legal hot water.

You’ll learn:

  • Best practices for creating safety documentation—and the key pitfalls to steer clear of
  • Strategies for document safety storage and destruction, whether you use paper or electronic records
  • When legal privilege applies to your safety records—and when it doesn’t
  • Which records must be produced during an investigation, and how quickly—and which records can legally be withheld
  • How to deal with documentation created by third party safety professionals or consulting experts
  • The proper way to respond to OSHA subpoenas and other document requests.

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.
