Safety Department of One: Tips to Managing EHS Program Success with Limited Time and Resources
Duration: 90 Minutes
Many companies today are operating at very lean staffing and budget levels. Because of this, as the Safety Manager, you are under constant pressure to produce more with less - meaning little or no staff, a smaller budget, and limited support from other departments. However, limited resources don't relieve you of your obligation to ensure that your company provides a safe environment for employees, keeps workers' compensation costs under control, stays in compliance, and sustains a culture of safety.
Join us for a webinar with Joe Keenan, Senior Safety Coordinator at C Spire, who has helped many companies to develop and implement effective safety programs when resources are limited. He will provide essential guidance and information to help you develop a program from scratch or evaluate an existing safety program to identify and address compliance challenges, boost your safety performance, and fine-tune your efforts to have the maximum impact.
