Effective Safety Inspections: How To Find – And Fix – Hazards Before They Find You
|Date / Time:
Conducting periodic safety inspections at your workplace may sound hopelessly old-school – but it works. The problem is that they often get put off and put off until an accident, near-miss, citation, or worker injury throws a spotlight on the shortcomings of your program.
Don't wait for something to go wrong before you take a hard look at the effectiveness of your safety procedures and practices. This is one case where an ounce of prevention is worth far more than a pound of cure. Also, once you get in the habit of regular safety inspections, they become just part of your routine rather than a daunting special project.
Join us for a webinar all about getting the safety inspection habit well-established at your workplace. You'll learn:
- How to best tailor the safety inspection process to specific operations, equipment, and facilities
- The single most important factor in your safety inspection program
- What OSHA says about safety inspections (and why you should pay attention)
- Real-life best practices that have worked for other organizations
- How to determine who should perform inspections
- Why you may want to consider an interdepartmental approach rather than relying exclusively on the safety department
- How frequent your inspections should be
- Strategies for tracking results to closure, to ensure your program is not marginalized by lack of follow-through
- The benefits of performing pre- and post-shift inspections
- Different approaches for designing and fine-tuning your safety inspection checklists
- How best to perform, document, and report inspection results in order to generate visibility
- Effective strategies for garnering senior and middle management support for your inspection process
- How to periodically "inspect" your inspection process to make sure you're continually improving

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
