Incorrect ladder use is one of the leading causes of occupational fatalities. Learn the common hazards and causes of injuries associated with ladders, and the four steps to prevent ladder accidents. It’s important to conduct a hazard assessment, select the correct ladder for the job, inspect the ladder before use, and follow safe work procedures.
This 45-minute awareness-based webinar will provide an overview of portable ladder safety practices.
Hot work is any process that produces flames or sparks. Workers who weld, or melt metals by brazing, soldering, or grinding, are exposed to a variety of hazards such as burns, electric shock, fire, and other risks. Learn how to prevent these hazards and the correct personal protective equipment and eye protection to use.
This 45-minute awareness-based webinar will also teach attendees how to inspect and properly store common welding equipment.
It's important to understand the different environmental hazards associated with electricity, as well as different types of electricity and combustible materials. Attendees learn about wiring protection and design, circuit polarity, grounding systems, circuit breakers, and how to properly inspect and work safely with all components.
This 45-minute awareness based webinar aims to provide an overview of electrical hazards and environments, and how to operate safely within them.
Dr. Ogundimu provides an overview of the changing populations in long-term care settings and an introduction to the problem of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in these settings. In addition, Dr. Ogundimu defines safe injection practices and provides examples of recent outbreaks in long-term care settings associated with unsafe injection practices.
Assisted Living Incident Command System (ALICS)
ALICS is a simplified and practical approach for long-term care providers to adopt and be compliant with the Homeland Security’s National Incident Management System directive. ALICS provides a flexible framework for command and control to improve communication between providers and emergency responders; provide a template for incident management; offer a scalable approach based on incident complexity; and outline a management framework to empower long-term care staff to improve incident management response.
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.
According to OSHA, slips, trips and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. Employees can incur back injuries, strains and sprains, contusions, and fractures resulting from unsafe workplace conditions. Learn the common exposures and how to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries associated with slips, trips, and falls.
Trainees will learn how to employ the resources of the Risk Management Center to assist with the development and implementation of solid prevention tools for the prevention of slip, trips, and falls. This webinar will be delivered by a certified safety and health expert.
