Effectively Handling Safety Risk Takers from a Management and Legal Perspective | Sessions
Without a disciplinary component in your enforcement policy for legal discipline of employees who disregard safety obligations, the possibility of using the unpreventable employee misconduct/isolated incident defense – "even though the employer maintained an effective safety program the accident's cause was the unsafe act of the employee" – is unlikely.
This session will give participants a roadmap for developing and "institutionalizing" effective enforcement, including infraction discipline that could be the missing ingredient in your existing program.
- Write a comprehensive, clear and fair legal discipline policy for workers who disregard safety obligations that will stand the scrutiny of all parties including unions and OSHA.
- Identify the key components that must be included in your legal discipline strategy for workers who disregard safety obligations.
- Determine which departments such as legal, human resources, communication, safety and management should be involved in developing and implementing your legal discipline strategy and policy for workers who disregard safety obligations.
