OSHA and Workplace Safety for HR Professionals
1-Hour CareerTrack Audio Conference
As an HR professional, your job is complicated enough without having to
constantly keep up with ever-changing health standards and safety procedures.
However, it is your responsibility to ensure employees are properly trained and
notified of potential hazards and company policies. From equipment standards to
proper emergency protocol, are you confident that your organization is OSHA
compliant — and could it pass a surprise inspection?
The Occupational Safety and Health Act was passed in 1970, and Congress created
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure employers
maintain a high level of personal safety and security in the workplace. With the
blame of OSHA lawsuits falling on human resources professionals due to a lack of
employee training and awareness, it's more important than ever to review OSHA's
policies and requirements. Make sure you stay current on the latest changes and
mandates, and double-check that your organization's workplace and employees
reflect OSHA's most up-to-date information.
Are your organization's working conditions and injury procedures in complete
compliance with OSHA law, or could you be leading your company into a legal
hazard? If you are not absolutely certain your facility and practices are
legally sound, you owe it to yourself and your organization to participate in
this training! Failure to comply with OSHA is a federal offense and can lead to
hefty fines, substantial penalties, and costly lawsuits.
Don't risk the threat of non-compliance actions being taken against your
This audio conference will get you up to date on the most recent OSHA mandates
while reviewing critical information regarding the General Duty Clause,
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), whistleblower protections, and workers'
compensation. We will also examine your organization's rights and
responsibilities under OSHA law and the specific processes and procedures that
must be followed when your facility doesn't meet code or an employee is injured
due to workplace conditions.
Spend just one hour with our expert, and
familiarize yourself with:
- The most effective use of Job-Hazard Analysis and why you should include
workers' valuable input
- Behavior-based safety and how involving employees helps them "buy in" to
safer working habits
- The basic requirements of Title 1 of the ADA — and what rights you as an
HR professional have when it comes to hiring new employees
- The four criteria an employer must meet in order to use the Direct Threat
- Which part of the act prohibits retaliation by employers against employees
that report their organization for unsafe working conditions
- The difference between OSHA record-keeping and reporting
- How long a medical record for each employee must be kept before being
- Your organization's OSHA documentation — are your written procedures,
language, and descriptions legally compliant?
Take just one hour
out of your busy day to listen, learn, and fill in those potentially damaging
knowledge gaps! The language of OSHA can be confusing, and even a small
misunderstanding or misinterpretation might have serious consequences. Federal
guidelines are particularly stringent when it comes to how organizations must
record OSHA cases and the processes that must be completed following a hazardous
incident. Any failure to notify employees of their rights under OSHA law,
provide them with complete and timely training, or fully comply with federal
OSHA guidelines can lead to significant financial hardships for your
HR personnel, administrative assistants, business owners, managers, and
supervisors — in short, anyone who is responsible for overseeing, communicating,
and upholding OSHA guidelines should not miss this conference!
