SAFETY WEBINAR ARCHIVE
Supervising Field Staff and Remote Workers
Recorded: September 16, 2020
How do you effectively supervise employees who are field staff or remote workers? It is certainly a challenge. What technology and tools can be utilized to ensure that productivity and safety is being optimized for workers who are not all in the same building? It is difficult to herd kittens, and sometimes that is what having virtual employees, field staff, and distant worksites is like. Working alone poses many risks and supervision is not easily achieved. Join us this month as we confront the challenges of supervision at a distance.
Recorded: August 19, 2020
When are pre-use inspections required? What records are needed? Who can perform, and what do I need to ensure is being checked? What happens when a deficiency is found. Is there an easier way? Join us for this webinar and get the answers to these questions and more.
Demonstrating Competency in OHS
Recorded: July 22, 2020
The courts, our clients, legislation and our workplaces require that we have persons competent in health and safety, but what does that mean in practical, everyday operations?

Is that enough?
Bugs, Critters, Bears and More!

Safety Committee and Safety Rep. Training for COVID-19

This new virus that threatens our world is now a known risk in every workplace and our best line of defense is a strong internal responsibility system.

Evaluations! Don't Forget the Follow Up!
Recorded: September 18, 2019
We all know about R.A.C.E. It means to recognize, assess, control and evaluate. However, what most workplaces tend to forget is the last step - to EVALUATE the controls they put in place.

Be proactive and evaluate your safety program. Join us today as we talk strategies to ensure that our evaluations and follow-ups are being conducted and effective.
The Supervisor Struggle!
Recorded: August 21, 2019
Having troubles keeping your employees on the right track? Could it be because you don’t have the right foundations in place for employees to follow?
