5 Ways to Reduce Your Business Risk with Workplace Health & Safety Programs

 

I just wanted to say thank you to all who attend my webinar on Thursday, June 17th on Workplace Health & Safety: 5 Ways to Reduce Your Risk. This webinar was created because I felt that businesses were commencing integration of health & safety into their business practices and were starting to gain insight into the benefits of implementation. Despite this, there were still too many occupational illness and injuries occurring on a daily basis. In the presentation we looked at the impact globally and nationally. The statistics are still staggering and have a significant impact on human capital performance, as well as the economy. I provided insight about the consequences associated with occupational injuries/illnesses in the workplace. Also discussed was information about the human impact and business impact – alluding to potential risk associated with accidents. We took a look at the structure and components of a Health & Safety Management System and I provided an overview of the components and associated standards that are legislative requirements that should be in place and functional in your business. I highlighted the importance of communicating, educating, and training on the components and standards of your Health & Safety Management System. Training programs should have clear objectives and incorporate adult learning principles. We also took a peek at learning and auditing tools that are available to make compliance training easier through technologies such as elearning (Electronic) and mlearning (Mobile).

Again thanks to those join webinar.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this webinar subject. We would be more than happy to have a conversation for you.
