Practical Tips For Legally Disciplining Unsafe Workers
|Date / Time:
More than 80 percent of workplace accidents are triggered by unsafe acts, rather than unsafe conditions, yet employers are held responsible by OSHA for the violative actions of employees.
While employee discipline is a critical component of the affirmative defense, OSHA is also scrutinizing both discipline and incentive programs more rigorously and is bringing a record number of whistle-blower actions against employers.
This webinar will help the persons responsible for enforcement of safety rules and employee discipline to understand how to effectively structure disciplinary programs, as applied to unsafe workers and others in need of performance modification, and avoid the legal land mines that can give rise to OSHA enforcement, employment discrimination claims, and worker retaliation claims.

|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.
