The Human Factor in OSHA Enforcement and Compliance

November 1, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Your company has a great occupational safety and health program.  It trains its employees and has a safety incentive program that employees love.  Then an employee ignores his training and fails to lock out a machine, injuring himself, and OSHA comes knocking.  This webinar will explore the human factor in occupational safety and health and how it impacts OSHA enforcement actions.

Topics covered will include:

  • Acknowledging that OH&S programs can only minimize risk, not eliminate it
  • Factors that lead to a successful OH&S program, including training, auditing, and discipline
  • How to instill a safety culture at your company with employee buy-in
  • Determining leading indicators of OH&S risks rather than relying on lagging indicators
  • How to defend an OSHA citation where the condition cited resulted from employee misconduct.
  • How to establish the employee misconduct defense
