  • 60 Minutes on 35 Microseconds: Impulse Noise from Weapons Fire

    Contains 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.

  • Improving Human Performance and Safety

    Contains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered

    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.

    Larry Wilson

    CEO, Author

    Larry began his career as a behavior-based safety consultant when he was 28. This did not help his credibility, but being so young did help in terms of getting people to tell the truth about their injuries and whether they were paying attention or not.


    Getting people comfortable enough to talk about what really happened and to say whether rushing frustration, fatigue and complacency were involved was the key in developing what Larry is probably best known for: being the author and creator of SafeStart, an advanced safety awareness training program currently being used by over 4 million employees in 65 countries. Larry is also the author of SafeTrack, a traditional observation and feedback process.


    To complement the adult training programs, Larry has also written and produced video training programs for children, teenagers and the family. He is currently working on three new episodes of the Boo Boo Bandits where he introduces Mr. Complacency, Miss Fast, Mr. Tired and Miss Angry.

     

    Along with co-author Gary Higbee, Larry wrote the book, “Inside Out—Rethinking Traditional Safety Management Paradigms”. Larry was also the editor for, “3rd Generation Safety—Using Neuroscience to Enable Personal Safety”, by Cristian Sylvestre. In addition, Larry is the author of 25 articles published in safety magazines in Canada, the USA, Brazil, the United Kingdom and Australia.

     

    However, even after 30 years, Larry is still pushing the edge. His latest training program takes the concepts and critical error reduction techniques and extends them into the realm of production and quality. If successful, it is his prediction that this will dramatically improve voluntary support for safety throughout industry, at a rapid pace.

  • Beyond Zero Injuries

    Contains 4 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered

    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.

  • Teaching and Coaching Long term Behavior Change in the Office Ergonomic Evaluation

    Contains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered

    Tuesday, March 13, 2018- This presentation will give safety professionals conducting office ergonomic evaluations a new and fresh perspective, which is encouraging an employee to adopt an ergonomic lifestyle in every area of their life. This is important because ergonomics does not clock out at the end of the work day, and impacting total life health and wellness is a key ingredient to employees working safer and healthier, and to keep them from becoming injured by their desk and their work behaviors. This class will the present challenges and give solutions to employees becoming ergonomically minded and developing an ergonomic lifestyle, give the ergonomic evaluator examples of coaching behavior change, and provide useful tools the evaluator may take away and incorporate into their ergonomic evaluations going forward.

    For every safety professional conducting office ergonomic evaluations there seems to be a different method or approach to conducting the assessment – all with the same desired outcomes. Office ergonomic evaluations are about as unique as the individuals receiving the evaluation. One thing that safety professionals conducting ergonomic evaluations all agree on is that some level of behavior change on the part of the employee receiving the assessment is essential to the ultimate success of the evaluation process.
    It is the behavior change aspect of the ergonomic evaluation that requires knowledge, skill, strategy, insight, and the ability to diagnose issues with both the workstation and employee behaviors that could eventually lead to problems such as fatigue, discomfort, pain, or perhaps even some sort of cumulative trauma or musculoskeletal disorder. This requires time and observation on the part of the evaluator, which essentially means that the 30 minute ergonomic evaluation process is not realistic if the evaluator wants to affect employee behavior.

    The process of conducting an ergonomic evaluation within the office setting is more than adjusting the workstation set up. In fact, workstation adjustment is 1/3 or less of the ergonomic evaluation process for the evaluator. Once the evaluator has dialed in the proper workstation set up for the employee it is now up to the evaluator to teach and coach the employee how to use their body properly, and how to use their new workstation design. Questions that will be answered in this presentation include: What is correct behavior for the employee using the computer workstation? What does coaching behavior look like and sound like? How should an employee use their body correctly? What are examples of how an employee should interact properly within their environment? These essential outcomes of the ergonomic evaluation are often challenging for the ergonomic evaluator. 

    Ergonomic evaluations often fail because the employee receiving the evaluation has not been instructed why there have been changes in their workstation design. Employees have been developing work habits for many years, and they are comfortable with how they perform at their workstation because they have been doing it that way for so long. Expecting these employees to perform and use their body differently beginning right then and there is not realistic. Performing tasks differently than with the habits that have been engrained for years is awkward and uncomfortable. Many employees give up trying to adjust to something new within a day - often the same day - of the ergonomic evaluation. How should the ergonomic evaluator teach an employee to develop new habits? How does the ergonomic evaluator convince an employee to stick with the awkwardness of something new? How does the ergonomic evaluator equip the employee with tools necessary to overcome these issues? Is it possible to teach the old dog new tricks? The answer is yes.

    This presentation will give safety professionals conducting office ergonomic evaluations a new and fresh perspective, which is encouraging an employee to adopt an ergonomic lifestyle in every area of their life. This is important because ergonomics does not clock out at the end of the work day, and impacting total life health and wellness is a key ingredient to employees working safer and healthier, and to keep them from becoming injured by their desk and their work behaviors.

  • Keys to Energizing Safety

    Contains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered

    Wednesday, February 21, 2018 - What do people in your company think about Safety? As boring, unexciting or even exhausting? Do they woodenly go through the Safety motions, rather than being vibrantly interested and stimulated? Do they basically see Safety is an unfortunate requirement, a pain in the posterior that’s mostly an obstacle to accomplishing their “real” work? Energy is essential for fueling highest-level Safety performance and culture throughout an organization. The right kind and sustained level of energy can propel momentum and actions to previously unforeseen heights (assuming – but going beyond - a base of policies and procedures, supportive structures, and consistent attention.) This webinar, based on over 3 decades working with larger, high-performance global companies, provides both practical strategies and methods for actually raising and sustaining Safety energy, enthusiasm, interest and engagement.

  • Put Your Team's Safety on Auto Pilot: Harness the Power of Habits to Protect Your People and Your Bottom Line

    Contains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered

    Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - It’s no secret that unsafe workplaces are expensive in terms of money and in productivity. Companies around the world have committed to creating safe workplaces and have invested heavily in expensive safety training for their employees. But the #1 problem that companies face today is transforming that knowledge into consistent safety practice. If you’ve been disappointed in the results of your safety training then you know the painful truth that knowing is not enough. Employees may know what to do. They may even want to do it. But they don’t do it. Even the best intentions don't translate into results you can count on when safety is on the line. This training is designed specifically for senior safety professionals whose organization already invests substantially in their employees' safety, but are still experiencing unsafe behavior and injuries. The most effective way to change how your employees typically think, respond, or act is to transform it from a conscious act into an unconscious act. In other words, make it a habit. Tired of saying the same thing to your employees? You will leave this session understanding why people do what they do and how to change it.

  • Fall Protection Challenges: Competent/Qualified Person Training after OSHA’s Recent Letter of Interpretation and Impact of the ANSI/ASSE Z359 Fall Protection Standards

    Contains 3 Component(s), 0.20 credits offered

    Wednesday, December 14, 2017 - As OSH professionals, most of us have had to deal with the challenges of training for fall protection/restraint. These challenges address everything from OSHA compliance to synergy with the existing ANSI/ASSE Z359 Standards. One of the most critical fall protection training issues deals with the topic of competent person versus qualified person. OSHA recently released a letter of interpretation addressing these issues, and this letter has generated significant numbers of questions. To address these questions ASSE is hosting a webinar on December 14th at 10:00 a.m. Central Time. There is literally no other organization in the world, other than ASSE, that can tie-in the OSHA letter, the impacted standards, legal opinion, and committee expertise. Kevin Denis of Gravitec and Z359 leader will speak to the overall training requirements found in Z359.2 for both competent and qualified person. John Mroszczyk chairs the ANSI/ASSE Z490 Committee and will speak to the overall training issue since Z490.1 is noted in the recent OSHA Letter. Finally, Adele Abrams, ASSE Legislative Counsel in Washington DC, will speak to the legal opinion she recently authored for the Society and OSHA compliance and synergy with the Z359 and Z490 Standards.

She will specifically address the new OSHA Walking/Working Surfaces standard and its specifications for fall protection equipment, and the correlation with the ANSI standards. Abrams recently prepared a regulatory legal analysis on this issue for ASSE.
