Managing Safety from Afar - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to manage safety effectively from a remote office and using virtual methods, while maintaining the integrity of your safety management system and building your organization’s safety culture.

When COVID-19 forced organizations to change how they operate nearly overnight, safety professionals had to scramble too. While your response may have been reactive, there are multiple lessons learned that can ensure you’re moving forward in virtual spaces in a proactive way.

OSHA had to move quickly too, and responded with frequent updates to their inspection and recordkeeping criteria, and now provides updates to their frequently asked questions (FAQ) on a weekly basis.

There were several software solutions, web-based training, and methods of virtually collaborating with coworkers pre-COVID, but many organizations found themselves in a steep learning curve. As limitations continue, these virtual methods are here to stay. Safety professionals need to understand how to evaluate solutions for their organizational needs, and how to utilize the tools available to them for communication, evaluation, instruction, and training. In many ways, COVID was a catalyst to push the industry to use available tools to get information to workers more efficiently, truly meeting them where they are.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate their organization’s ability to take safety functions online and virtual.
  • Identify strategies to conduct virtual safety inspections and assessments.
  • Learn some tricks of effective virtual safety instructors.
