Since OSHA fines have skyrocketed over 80% in 2016, organizations across the U.S. are struggling to train and manage their staff to avoid citations. Implementing stricter safety rules alone won’t cut it - Amanda Czepiel, JD, senior managing editor of EHS for BLR.
MIDDLETON, Mass. (PRWEB) March 22, 2018
BLR®, the leading provider of employment, safety, and environmental compliance information and technology, is pleased to announce the third annual Safety Culture 2018 conference, coming September 12–14 to Atlanta, Georgia.
Safety Culture 2018 will empower employers to create a workplace culture that will strengthen safety compliance and engagement, reduce risk for accidents and injury, and avoid costly OSHA fines and litigation. OSHA maintains that creating a strong safety culture has the single greatest impact on incident reduction in any process, which ultimately saves companies time and money in lost workdays, performance lapses, and costly claims. The curriculum of this interactive 2-day conference, with optional preconference workshops, applies to both safety and HR professionals who need to improve safety outcomes and workforce retention, while proving the ROI of their efforts.
Attendees will learn practical, proven strategies for:
- Dealing with difficult employees and training them to make safety a priority
- Supercharging your safety committees for maximum safety engagement and retention
- Measuring safety performance with analytics and hazard tracking
- Evaluating and fine-tuning incentives and disciplinary systems to ensure maximum effectiveness
- Identifying and eliminating cultural hazards
- Improving your safety training to ensure it’s engaging and accessible for all employees
- And more!
“Safety engagement is the foundation of effective safety management,” says Amanda Czepiel, JD, senior managing editor of EHS for BLR. “Since OSHA fines have skyrocketed over 80% in 2016, organizations across the U.S. are struggling to train and manage their staff to avoid citations. Implementing stricter safety rules alone won’t cut it—the only way to truly improve your safety program is from the employee-level up, and that begins by instilling a sense of safety culture and community in your workforce.”
The event will take place at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. For more information, please visit safetyculture.blr.com.
