What Executives Must Know About Safety and OSHA, and “The Care and Feeding of Safety Professionals.”
No major MBA program includes meaningful workplace safety and health instruction in their curriculums, and yet safety-related issues can cause headaches for executives and damage company value. Look at the UAW’s effective use of safety complaints to give Tesla’s Freemont assembly plant a black eye with the public and creditors. In some industries, a single OSHA serious citation or a company’s injury and illness rate can complicate bidding or throw a wrench into a prospective purchaser’s due diligence. Top management must be involved in safety compliance or as in any crucial business area, the right things won’t happen. Moreover, a savvy executive can attack the artificial separation between the safety function and production. Properly used safety can contribute to efficiency, quality, a union free culture, and sustainability/social awareness goals. And no executive ever wants to attend a funeral for an employee.
This practical webinar will provide a birds-eye view of the safety requirements and legal issues and discuss effective ways to improve safety efforts and motivate personnel.
