Today's workforce is undergoing a major change. Baby boomers are beginning to retire, meaning that Generation X and Millennials will make up most the workforce. The young adults entering the workforce today come in with a different set of skills, culture, and attitude. These generations will ultimately be responsible for production in this world, so how can we get them to buy into safety? Job safety can also be a big factor for young adults who are looking at job positions. They are prepared to challenge and introduce new ideas.
In addition, some people in the workforce do not have the opportunity to retire as early as prior generations. With age comes additional safety considerations, and senior employees can be more susceptible to serious injuries.
Is your organization's safety culture ready to embrace a new generation?

conditions that may cause workers' injury or illness.” This webinar teaches you how to identify, define, and anticipate
different hazards in the workplace using Job Hazard Analyses. It will discuss the hierarchy of controlling hazards for
various types of hazards, how to employ Safety Observations and Risk Assessments, and how to use the Risk Management Center
to address and control various hazardous situations.

Understand the most frequently cited violations, and learn about the increasing civil penalties for employers. Violations of OSHA’s safety and health regulations could result in increased fines that are 50-80% higher than they are currently. OSHA’s Review Commission has also recently ruled that OSHA can impose these penalties company-wide, so that fines at a primary site can be imposed on future inspections at other company sites. This may lead to similar violations at these secondary locations based upon knowledge of the violation at the first location, with fines being assessed to reflect “Repeat” status.
This webinar will teach you where to look to identify areas for improvement and to learn how to use the applications within the risk management platform to avoid cited violations and costly fines under the new OSHA requirements.
