Session Highlights

  • Briefing the Boardroom — How to Respond to the C-Suite 
    Examine how the safety professional can identify the questions that the CEO's, Presidents and Board of Directors should be asking regarding their duties regarding fiduciary and regulatory/compliance and how the safety professional can provide the answers to those questions. 
  • Criminal Prosecution of Corporate Executives and Safety Professionals: Are You at Risk? 
    This presentation will address the federal government’s new initiative to increase the number of criminal charges in cases involving worker safety and endangerment, the types of conduct that could trigger a criminal investigation under the OSH Act, and actions that companies, company executives and safety professionals can take to lessen the chance of individual civil and criminal liability. 
  • How Single Safety Professionals Handle the Challenges of their Company's Safety Programs 
    This session will address the various challenges the sole safety professional faces (e.g., feeling isolated, keeping up with safety trends while managing day-to-day tasks, possible burnout, etc.) and will offer tips and strategies to manage these challenges to ensure a successful safety program. 
  • Pushing Back When OSHA's Unreasonable 
    This interactive and comprehensive presentation offers attendees an in-depth, practical examination of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Attendees will be provided a step-by-step and "real-world" discussion of the legal process implicated when OSHA arrives for an inspection, how to define the scope of the inspection, and how to push back when OSHA is being unreasonable.
  • Protect Your Company: OSHA’s Expansion of Whistleblower and Reporting Liability Against Employers
    This panel discussion will focus on OSHA’s recent emphasis on Whistleblower protections under the OSH Act and other federal statutes,  and OSHA’s Whistleblower Directorate’s enforcement of these statutes, including OSHA’s new Whistleblower Investigations Manual.  This panel will also explore the anti-retaliation provisions of the new OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation that requires a reasonable procedure for employees to report injuries and illnesses that shall not deter or discourage employees from reporting.
