Step Up Your Safety Program: Upcoming Safety Workshop
Please join Montana State Fund for our free half-day safety workshop, Step Up Your Safety Program.
Permit-Required Confined Spaces: Some employees work in confined spaces. However, when the confined space job involves the potential for serious safety or health hazards, the employer may need an Occupational Safety and Health Administration, (OSHA), confined spaces permit. In this session, we will cover the permit requirements and best practices to help ensure employers protect their workers and employees understand their responsibilities to be safe on the job.
Slips, Trips and Falls (STF): Statistics for work related STF’s are painful. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, STF injuries make up 20 percent of all job-related injuries; STF’s cause 15% of all accidental deaths; and injuries related to STF’s cost employers $40,000 per incident. As we prepare to head into the fall and winter months, it’s time to take a step back to discuss the reasons for STF’s in the workplace and the solutions to prevent them in the future.
Human Judgement and Risk: Safety leaders understand that no workplace can be risk-free. But if leaders encourage positive safety judgement with their employees, it may limit some of the more hazardous risks. In this session we will discuss how employers view risks, how to change an employee’s risk mindset and how leadership can help shape the best safety outcomes.
