Safety Day, Wednesday, May 15, 2019

A full day of safety programming to build a culture of safety at your workplace featuring expert presentations, peer networking, and insights from OSHA.



Active Shooter from a Law Enforcement Perspective

Customs and Border Protection has a unique perspective on how to prepare for an active shooter event at your workplace. You learn the basics and how to prepare for an active shooter both physically and mentally, as well as what to expect when law enforcement arrives.

Robert J. Dwyer, CBP Port Director

Tracy S. Casey, Chief CBP Officer

Preparing for a Visit from OSHA

In general, OSHA doesn’t call ahead for a plant tour. Find out how to be prepared for an inspection at any time, what your rights and responsibilities are, and how to ensure the process goes smoothly.

George Mauch, CITEC Business Advisor

Keeping it Fresh

We know safety is critical but sometimes habits get the best of us. How can we make the safest practices be the habit that doesn’t break? This discussion will feature some of what’s been working for local businesses as well as the opportunity to share successes and not-so-successful programs at your organization.

Steve Lockwood, CITEC Business Development Director

Inclusion and Safety

Diverse and inclusive workplaces are known to be more innovative and productive. But they are also safer as well. We’ll talk about why that is, and what it really means to develop a culture of inclusion.

Sharon Van Auken, CITEC Business Advisor

Effective Distraction/Cell Phone Policies

Distracted driving and distracted working are both productivity killers and extremely dangerous. The biggest cause of that distraction is cell phone use. Developing and implementing an effective cell phone policy has become an imperative.

Kate Chepeleff, CITEC Business Advisor

Recent OSHA Findings, 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.
