New Webinar Series
WLS is now offering you a new selection of educational webinars covering a range of topics, from culture to compliance.
June 23rd - Incident Management/OSHA Recordkeeping
In the unfortunate event of an injury at your workplace, it is critical that everyone understands their roles and responsibilities when it comes to how best to respond. We are going to refer to this process as care management. This week we are going to provide an overview of how to implement an effective care management process in your workplace
July 21st - Fire & Emergency
Are you ready for major emergencies? Natural disasters, chemical releases, active shooters, and vehicle crashes get our attention. But how your company prepares for and handles smaller everyday medical emergencies can determine how everyone will respond in a mass casualty event.
An Emergency Action Plan (EAP) organizes management and employee response to life-threatening workplace emergencies. Well-developed EAPs and proper training prevent and mitigate worker injuries as well as reduce facility damage during emergencies. A poorly prepared and executed EAP results in a disorganized evacuation response. This causes confusion, additional injuries, and unnecessary illness (due to chemical, biological and/or radiation exposure), not to mention major property damage and loss.
During this webinar we’ll review a checklist of many of the components of effective EAPs and suggestions for using them during relatively minor regular work incidents to always be prepared.
August 25th - Electrical
In the modern era electricity is nearly everywhere you go. We often take advantage of it and sometimes don’t give it the consideration it deserves. Electricity is a powerful tool but can be deadly if not handled properly. This webinar will be focusing on understanding the basics of electrical safety and best practices for working with and around electricity.
October 27th - Safety360
Does your line leadership struggle implementing safety in your organization? As leaders, we are constantly sending clear direction to our employees and colleagues. People observe what we do, and what we say, and tend to act accordingly based on what they perceive to be our communicated values and priorities.
Safety360 is the only tool available in which participants can receive and analyze confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. This typically includes the employee's manager, peers, and direct reports.
This webinar will go beyond Safety360 as a leadership development tool and will walk through how everyday habits of safety excellence can be driven through the Safety360 process.
November 17th - How to Create Employee Engagement
An organization may have many injury prevention programs and initiatives, but without developing the safety culture throughout the organization, those programs won't be sustainable. Learn the basics of how to develop the safety culture that will reproduce safety leaders, engage employees and continue to evolve through organizational changes. You can create an injury-free safety culture at work and extend it to the home and the community, but it will take clear demonstrated commitment to safety as a core value throughout the organization.
Most people know that industrial equipment can be dangerous when it’s being used. That’s why machines are designed with safety equipment and operators wear personal protective equipment when using them but machinery can also present hazards when it’s not in operation. As long as energy sources such as electricity, natural gas, steam, pressurized water, and compressed air are attached to the machine, a hazard exists. Workers who maintain or repair the equipment, or who will be working in close proximity to it, need to be made aware of these hazards and recognize that steps have been taken to protect them. This week we will review the 6 steps to conduct a proper lockout & tagout so everyone involved, maintenance and operators, understands how to stay safe.
