    How will the workshops be run?
    The virtual workshops will include two topics, with one topic presented in the morning and the second topic in the afternoon. Each session will be scheduled for two hours with a break.  This breakdown gives participants time to step away from their computer to avoid any ergonomic or eye strain issues.

    Topics Include
    OSHA’s Top Ten Citations (Part 3):  
    This session will round out our three-part series on OSHA’s Top Ten Citations for 2019.  In this segment we will cover Powered Industrial Trucks, Machine Guarding and Personal Protective Equipment (Eye Protection in Construction.)  The advantage to reviewing these citations is to learn from the mistakes of other organizations to ensure your businesses successfully follow OSHA standards.

     All-In Leadership:   Whether or not you know it, you are a safety leader. However, our actions as leaders can positively or negatively affect our organization (e.g. productivity, quality of our products, morale, employee engagement, safety, etc.). In this session, we will delve into the concept known as “All-In Leadership” made popular by author Cort Dial in his book, Heretics to Heroes – A Memoir on Modern Leadership.” Dial’s insight and leadership approaches will help you improve positive leadership skills that reinforce your commitment to build a safety of culture across the state.
