"OSHA’s Top 5: How To Overcome These Common Compliance Hurdles and Avoid Costly Penalties
Whether your organization is big or small, OSHA demands a lot of you – and, if you fall short, you can face costly penalties (or, even more tragically, serious injuries or deaths).
There’s a lot to keep track of, and too many companies make the same preventable mistakes over and over – which is why the list of top citations varies little from year to year.
Don’t become a statistic. As the old saying goes, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” Instead, join us on February 28 for an in-depth webinar on the five biggest OSHA compliance challenges you face – and how to master them.
- The current OSHA enforcement posture - including an update based on the recent election
- The most frequently cited OSHA standards that occur again and again – and how to avoid becoming a statistic yourself
- The Top 5 OSHA compliance challenges that most companies face – and why mastering just these 5 will put your safety program on a strong footing for years to come
- Strategies that will enable you to establish an ongoing, proactive safety management system
- Best practices that create safety success for real-life organizations
- What you need to know to thoroughly prepare for an OSHA inspection
- How to discipline employees who can’t – or won’t – follow your safety rules
- An effective follow-up process to help ensure that mishaps are corrected rather than repeated
This webinar will be recorded on Thursday, February 28, 2013
