New Safety Managers: Essential Mistakes to Avoid Concerning Training, Investigations, Recordkeeping, and More - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to become an effective leader and safety presence in your new safety manager role.


There are more than 5,000 workplace deaths and more than 3 million injuries with days away from work in the United States every year. Many of the could have been avoided with effective safety leadership and training programs.

An effective safety manager must know how to identify hazards and implement effective controls; develop and write safety policies and procedures; assess training needs and develop and deliver training, and gain buy-in from employees, supervisors, and management.

For new safety managers, the job can be pretty overwhelming. There are OSHA regulations to master, programs to develop, and training programs to implement. Safety managers must also ensure that recordkeeping and documentation are in order, respond to the demands of stakeholders across the organization, from front-line employees up to executives, and carry out accident investigations and inspections.

To succeed as a safety manager, it’s best to take a step back and tackle each area one by one.

But, in which areas are new safety managers most likely to make mistakes?

What are the top priorities and actions that a new safety manager must accomplish in the first 180 days?

And, how is a “successful” safety program measured?

Join us on July 25 when we’ll take the guesswork out by providing a roadmap for success as a new safety manager. You’ll learn proven strategies for mastering OSHA compliance, developing an effective safety program, and attaining buy-in from senior management, supervisors, and employees.

Plus, you’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize the challenges and common mistakes of a new safety manager leadership role
  • Identify which OSHA regulations apply to your organization and develop compliance strategies for your operations
