Safety Department of One: Tips to Managing EHS Program Success with Limited Time and Resources
Live Webinar: Tuesday, May 2, 2017
1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific
It’s the safety manager’s job to provide a safe working environment for employees, keep workers’ compensation costs under control, and maintain OSHA compliance. And with OSHA fines through the roof, the stakes have never been higher to make sure you’re operating your safety program at peak efficiency and effectiveness.
But, with many companies running at very lean staffing and budget levels—especially in service and support departments such as safety—the designated safety manager is under daily pressure to do more with less. In some cases, a safety “team” actually may be just one person doing it all.
Whether your safety department is a one-person operation or it has limited staffing and resources, it’s important to learn where and how to devote your time to maximize the return on your investment, keep employees safe, and avoid crippling OSHA penalties.
Join us on May 2 for an all-new webinar that will reveal how to manage your EHS program for success when you have limited time and resources to get the job done right.
