What Are Your Rights When OSHA Shows Up?

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Employers continue to mismanage OSHA inspections. These missteps will be more costly after the August 2016 72% increase in OSHA penalties.

OSHA has heavily changed OSHA compliance obligations in the last eight months, and many employers' inspection procedures do not reflect those changes.

The information shared will provide practical instructions for managing every step in the inspection process and will explain needed adjustments in meeting new OSHA challenges. Learn guidance in how to train frontline supervisors and prepare for increasingly demanding OSHA evidence demands on a range of new issues.

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.
