Sign Up for Free March Safety Workshops
Montana State Fund’s Safety Services Specialist Kirk Smith will hit the road this March to present his free safety workshop A Small Price for Safety. (For those who cannot make the in-person workshops, a virtual session will be provided at the end of the month).
Job Safety (Hazard) Analysis (JSA or JHA): No matter how you say it, a JSA/JHA can be a useful tool in your quest to eliminate workplace injury. A thorough JSA breaks down a specific job or job task into steps to identify hazards and how to mitigate them. The JSA improves communication, teaches new employees, reinforces what experienced employees already know, and makes your workplace safer. Join Kirk to learn how you can build a solid job safety analysis.
Control Your Work Comp Costs: In this session we’ll explore three programs, Post-Offer/Pre-Hire Physicals, the Montana Subsequent Injury Fund, and Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work that can help your organization limit injuries and have a positive effect on your bottom line. In addition, we’ll give an overview on underwriting and how the use of these tools can affect your premium.
