Systematic Approach to Safety , Center for Risk Management -Accidents don't just happen. They are a product of negative influences in the system. Accidents can be prevented ... and eliminated. Too often it is normal to simply blame the worker involved without understanding how the system is structured and what contributed to the accident. A systems approach assesses a system and identifies those areas and processes that contribute to accidents. This is the most powerful, cost effective method to understand what process changes are needed for lasting improvement.This class is taught by Greg Smith. Instructor bio here.

OSHA’s Top 10: #1 Fall Protection, Center for Risk Management -For the 9th year in a row Fall Protection has taken the top spot on OSHA’s Top 10 list with over 7,000 violations cited. Falls remain the leading cause of death in the construction industry. In response to these statistics many have implemented additional training for site employees on fall protection use – but the numbers aren’t changing quick enough. So, if training is not the answer – what is? Learning how to minimize the risk of potentially dangerous or fatal fall hazards allows an organization to take a proactive approach to worker safety. This workshop provides an overview of effective fall protection programs, giving participants proven strategies for identifying, evaluating and controlling fall hazards. Beginning with background on current fall protection standards, regulations, statistics and trends, the workshop will provide information about all critical elements of a fall protection program. General information about fall protection equipment will also be provided, including equipment components, system development, anchorages, and clearance requirements. All information presented will be in accordance with the ANSI Z359 family of fall protection standards.This class is taught by Nolan Miller. Instructor bio here.
