Get Yourself a Back-Up!

We can’t always predict when an employee will

leave. Sometimes when an employee leaves, they don’t have the chance to offload their work or provide updates on projects in progress. Without a backup trained, how will you know where your business is in the HSEP?

We’ve recently noticed there has been an increase in our main HSEp contacts leaving during the implementation of the program. Having a backup who knows where the main contact left off is

vital to the continuation of the program. Being able to pick up where they left off will ensure that

your topics will be successful in achieving a rebate.

If you do not have a HSEP backup in place, we highly recommend putting one in place. While

we understand workplaces seem to be busier than ever, take the time to train the backup to be

aware of where your organization is in the program journey and where all your documents are

stored. You’ve paid to be in the program, and it would be a shame to have to defer your topics

and lose out on the whole year because you don’t know where to start to get back on track.

Dunk & Associates will do everything we can to assist you and help you get back on track, but

there are a few things that we cannot control, such as the time left in your approved action plan,

where your supporting documents are kept, and the specific details of your topic implementation.

The success of your program hinges on all these factors.

Plan to have at least one person as an HSEp backup as a minimum. These backups can also

help you create HSEp content, follow up with your employees to complete training, gather

evidence, assist in the evaluation step, and take over without skipping a beat if your main contact


If your main contact does leave, it is important to:

  • Do a recap of where they left off in the program and where resources are stored before they leave.

  • Hand off the program to the backup.

  • Notify Dunk of the change so we can add access to our portals, add them to our distribution lists, and get things back on track if possible.

Being prepared is crucial to your success in HSEp.
