Analytics: A New Approach to Health & Safety

Friday, October 28 | Advanced | 0.7 CEUs

Organizations have long used data analysis to drive improved performance. However, the quality of data now being accumulated and the speed at which data are being reported enables organizations to gain valuable insights to improve their overall performance. Explore data points that drive success from an occupational safety and health (OSH) perspective and discover how this information can lead to continuous improvement in critical areas such as preventing workplace incidents and injuries, reducing absenteeism, and increasing productivity.

Instructor(s): Todd R. Hohn, CSP

Learning Objectives:
  • Determine how your organization can use leading indicators to drive improved outcomes
  • Analyze key success factors to enact system and process change
  • Review how analytics are being deployed to improve safety performance
  • Implement different learning tools to support engagement and implementation

This applied ergonomics risk assessment course gives participants a foundational understanding of an ergonomics program. Participants will receive a set of essential ergonomics risk assessment tools. The participants will learn to use tools for ergonomics hazard identification, analyze and evaluate ergonomic risks, and apply risk reduction concepts.

Instructor(s): Georgi Popov, Ph.D., CSP, ARM, SMS, QEP

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe ergonomics hazards
  • Use appropriate ergonomics risk assessment terminology
  • Differentiate between fundamental ergonomics hazard identification tools and semiquantitative ergonomics risk assessment tools
  • Evaluate various ergonomics risk assessment methodologies
  • Develop a business case for ergonomics interventions

Creating a Safe Driving Workforce

Monday, October 24 | Intermediate | 0.7 CEUs

It takes time, patience and persistence to create a culture that advances auto safety.

The Importance of Perspective, Policy and Adapting Through Learning

Friday, October 28 | Beginner | 0.7 CEUs

Traditional decision-making in occupational safety overlooks field modifications and worker perspectives. This course will use safety management guidance found in ISO 45001 and ANSI/ASSP Z10 to emphasize the value of continuous improvement through learning and experimentation. Empower your team to assess risks, influence senior management and turn lessons into actionable policies.

Instructor(s): Wyatt Bradbury, CSP, CHST, CIT

Learning Objectives:
  • Differentiate between types of systems using examples and case studies
  • Prepare a high-level hazard analysis that depicts "work as imagined" and a localized hazard analysis that depicts "work as done"
  • Define risk
  • Synthesize risks and engage employees in hazard analysis and risk management
  • Support learning at all levels

Lean Six Sigma Tools for Safety Professionals

Wednesday, October 26 | Intermediate | 0.7 CEUs

Learn to use Lean Six Sigma (LSS) tools as a framework for developing safety and health management programs. This course will help you calculate key performance indicators using accepted LSS tools, align LSS benefits with OSH improvement, prioritize risk reduction options and develop a business case for OSH intervention. Engineering terminology and risk models come together in this framework developed by OSH professionals for OSH professionals

Instructor(s): Georgi Popov, Ph.D., CSP, ARM, SMS, QEP

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss key elements of the LSS model
  • Design projects using the operational excellence (Six Sigma) methodology
  • Conduct a Pareto analysis to evaluate operations
  • Calculate commonly used OSH metrics using LSS tools
  • Apply LSS metrics to OSH interventions

Managing Risk Is More than Risk Assessment

Monday, October 24 | Intermediate | 0.7 CEUs

Many organizations have implemented a risk assessment process. But managing occupational safety and health (OSH) risk is more than just risk assessment. There are five elements in risk management, and while risk assessment is at the center, the others need to be addressed. Further, leadership needs to be leveraged, the workforce needs to be engaged, and the process needs to be integrated into an occupational safety and health management system. This course is designed for OSH professionals who want to further their role in their organization’s implementation of risk management.

Instructor(s): Pamela J. Walaski, CSP, FASSP

Learning Objectives:
  • Explain the intersectional and complimentary nature of the components of risk management
  • Develop techniques and tools to enhance your role as an OSH leader in your organization’s risk management process
  • Demonstrate how to engage senior management and your workforce to perform integral roles in the risk management process
  • Identify techniques for integrating risk management into an occupational safety and health management system
