Speaking Agenda

August 24, 2022: 11:45 am – 12:30 pm ET 
Prevent Incidents Before They Happen: Using “Prevention Through Design”

Workplace safety incidents have devastating impacts on employee health, undermine confidence in safety programs, and result in annual US costs of $171 billion according to a 2019 NSC estimate. But most companies still react to individual injuries, rather than follow a prevention-based strategy. This webinar will review the key elements of proactive, risk-based safety management, using the framework of the NIOSH initiative Prevention through Design (PtD) to reduce or eliminate risks at the source. We’ll also discuss the importance of a dynamic perspective that tracks the ways risks in one area of operations affect risks in others, and will include interactive exercises to identify risks in different scenarios.

August 24, 2022: 4:00 – 4:45 pm ET 
The Future of EHS Training Program Management

Workplace EHS training is arguably the most important step towards prevention injuries, illnesses and other negative safety outcomes. Simultaneously, EHS training is also essential to compliance with a broad range of health and safety standards. That’s why one of the fundamental roles of EHS professionals is to make sure that workers have the training they need, when they need it so that they can work safely. Whether you’re new or seasoned in training management, this session will show how to manage a highly effective workplace health and safety training program and introduce strategies to help overcome the challenges.
