Beyond Zero InjuriesContains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered Includes a Live Event on 02/28/2018 at 12:00 PM (EST)
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 : For years, safety leaders have been challenged with hitting the goal of zero injuries. Millions of dollars are spent in search of Zero Injuries, the "Holy Grail" of safety. Many of these efforts have proved beneficial, and yet many others must be questioned. Some of the finest safety cultures meet the goal of Zero Injuries, only to find that a tragic event shatters Zero, leaving it a hollow memory of what was, but no longer is. Is Zero the right goal or is there a better one that will drive continuous safety improvement? Join me at this session and learn what lies Beyond Zero, and how this is the goal your culture must strive for to not only survive, but thrive in today's competitive landscape.

Improving Human Performance and SafetyContains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered Includes a Live Event on 03/29/2018 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Thursday, March 29, 2018 - There are two ways to improve performance: one is to enhance the performance itself (sing a better note, make a better weld). The second is to reduce unforced errors. There are four human factors that cause the majority of performance errors. If you're not moving they can cause quality problems or production problems. However, if you are moving, or things are moving around you, then these human factors can also cause eyes not on task, line-of-fire and balance, traction or grip errors, which dramatically increase the chance of injury. In this session, participants will learn which human factors cause the majority of performance errors, four critical error reduction techniques and the neuroscience behind them, as well as how to use these techniques to enhance performance thereby improving quality, production and safety, at the same time.
60 Minutes on 35 Microseconds: Impulse Noise from Weapons FireContains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered Includes a Live Event on 05/30/2018 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Wednesday May 30, 2018 - Most things a Safety Professional should know about impulse noise from weapons fire. Safety Professionals and Risk Managers in the Public Sector may be responsible for protecting employees from the hazards of impulse noise, specifically from exposure during weapons fire in the training environment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics there were over 1.7 million people employed in the Police and Security Service Industry in 2016. Efforts to reduce hearing loss from hazardous impulse noise in many ways have fallen behind the efforts to mitigate continuous noise. There are some misconceptions and some deaf spots, so this webinar will help clear the fog and assist you in your efforts to serve a population exposed to a hazard that can do permanent damage in one stroke.
