Unsafe Employees: How to Fix or Fire Them and Minimize Your Legal Risks
|Date / Time:
Any effective safety and health management program requires that employees follow the established safety rules and regulations. Sometimes though, that does not occur and management must determine how best to address these infractions.
Typically, a company will have a formal process which includes re-training, graduated discipline, and the choice of last resort, termination The trick is to determine the best, balanced approach in order to assure that the infractions cease and the at-risk behavior does not cause potential harm in the future.
While the threat of a termination-related lawsuit is undoubtedly sobering, doing nothing is far from an acceptable solution. Failing to act when an unsafe employee ignores safety practices or engages in reckless behaviors can destroy your safety culture. Morale drops, injury risk increases, and you face greater exposure to compliance-related complaints and citations.

- Why enforcement of safety procedures and practices is essential to your culture and productivity

- Common pitfalls that will open you up to complaints, citations, and poor morale Ð and how to avoid them

|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.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
