Health & Safety Rountable
Is employee and workplace safety important to you? Do you struggle with effective safety training? Have workers compensation claims and costs troubled you recently? Do you have questions about OSHA requirements? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Many NIA Members have the same concerns about safety in their everyday business practices, so we are here to help.
NIA and its Health and Safety Committee will host the 6th Annual Health and Safety Roundtable Wednesday, November 9, 2011, from 15 p.m. Members will have an opportunity to openly share information with their industry peers and safety experts on a variety of important topics. This is the perfect event for your safety director or other safety personnel to attend. Past topics include:
- OSHA recordkeeping requirements
- The importance and use of transitional duty programs to return employees to work following an injury
- How to participate in an OSHA inspection
- The importance of safety pre-task planning
- Purchasing workers compensation insurance
- Liability to employers for the use of company-owned vehicles
- Controlling the costs of workers compensation claims
- Safety training.
Topics from past years may be repeated. If you have an idea for a topic, e-mail Amelia Kurtz at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 23, 2011.
Chris Handley, Manager, Corporate Safety for Performance Contracting, Inc., and Gary Auman, NIA's general counsel, of Dunlevey, Mahan & Furry, will serve as moderators for the Safety Roundtable. They will answer questions you may have and cover topics that have raised questions from contractors in the past. You can’t afford to miss this opportunity to have an open discussion and receive valuable feedback from counsel and safety experts.

Those attending both the Committee Days meeting and the Roundtable will be eligible to receive a $15 discount off the combined registration fee.
