OSHA Top Ten
The top ten most frequently cited violations is a field that doesn't change much year to year. (Although, spoiler alert, this year has a new one.) The idea of Safety Day is to change that, so George Mauch will walk us through the top ten. Let's make sure northern New York doesn't end up in the penalty box for these!
George Mauch, CITEC Business Advisor

Workplace Harassment

Occupational safety and health programs usually focus on physical risks, but psychological risks such as bullying, violence, harassment, discrimination and stress are equally important. These issues have been identified as major challenges in today's workplace.

Debi Pettit, CITEC Business Advisor


Human Performance Tools to Promote Active Worker Engagement

"We have a good safety program, if we could just get our people to follow it." We hear that all that time. Kate Chepeleff will offer some no-cost tools to move your employees to safer behavior without them even knowing it.

Kate Chepeleff, CITEC Business Advisor


Safety and Job Training

Only 31 percent of U.S. workforce receives formal job training, which is not ideal for efficiency, customer service, equipment maintenance, and, of course, safety. A poorly trained worker will be more likely to be injured, will not spot hazards, and will take shortcuts that lead to injury.

Steve Lockwood, CITEC Business Development Director


OSHA's Safe and Sound Campaign

Safe workplaces are sound businesses. Every workplace should have a safety and health program that includes leadership, workers, and a proactive approach to finding and eliminating hazards. Get ready for Safe and Sound Week, August 13-19.

Jeff Prebish, Assistant Area Director of OSHA


OSHA Findings and Complance / Update and Q&A
Learn how to improve your safety efforts by hearing what OSHA is focusing on and what other companies have recently been cited for. Always a popular portion of the Annual North Country Safety Day, this is an ideal time to ask questions of our OSHA representative and our safety experts.
