OSHA New Recordkeeping Standard

C. Gary Lopez, CSP, MS
Assistant Director of Loss Control Services
Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services
Weston, FL 

OSHA electronic recordkeeping is a significant shift in how records will be maintained and made available to the public. Organizations will now have their safety records as recorded on their 300 Logs made available for public scrutiny. Also impacted in this new regulation will be traditional safety programs such as incentive programs and drug free workplace programs. Employers will be restricted in terms of what types of programs they can implement. Another item of this regulation will be OSHA’s strong position on employers using disciplinary procedures to punish those who report accidents.

Recognizing the Critical Hazards that lead to the Highest Risk Exposures

Paul Esposito, CIH, CSP
President and Owner
STAR Consultants, Inc.
Arnold, MD 

While the highest risk exposures may be industry specific, there are some categories that are used to determine what is a critical hazard and what is the highest risk exposure. First, the definition of critical to safety (CTS) will be presented. Regardless of your industry, knowing your CTS tasks, and controls, can go a long way to minimizing these highest risk exposures. 
Exposures can include risks that are controlled. Knowing how to classify exposures using a risk ranking matrix is the first step in in determining if these exposures are controlled. Rather than just use the standard risk formula, (severity x likelihood), attendees will be presented with an alternate solution, one where the hierarchy of controls plays an integral part of the residual risk calculation.

In this presentation, you will learn how one large direct-delivery company is driving safety and risk management improvements through assistance efforts, assessment programs, and a loss sensitive allocation system. It all began with inspiring excellence through hands-on education and training by dedicated professionals, followed by an assessment process that analyzes four (4) critical elements: leadership, injury prevention, motor vehicle safety, and environmental. Finally, a new loss allocation system was developed to provide a simple, fair, and sufficient program for ensuring P&L accountability for front line business units.

Improve your safety training through the use of technology    

Normagene Dmytriw
Senior Safety & Occupational Health Specialist
Broward County Government, Risk Management
Fort Lauderdale, FL

Safety and Health training is often considered a regulatory requirement and many employers make little effort to ensure a quality training program. As injuries continue to occur and claims increase, employers are often left scratching their head as to why. That is because “Telling” is not training. Telling someone generic safety information will have little impact on reducing claims. Incorporating technology to fulfill an organization’s regulatory requirement for training is not new, however, in many instances is ineffective. As technology improves, and becomes more readily available and affordable, employers are looking to technology to provide creative and effective learning options. This session will dive into some of the most commonly used technology based learning tools, and discuss their pros and cons.
