Safety & Health Webinar Series

With fall and holiday shopping seasons soon underway, retailers – particularly highly visible regional and national chains – can be easy targets for OSHA enforcement. Retail stores are incredibly dynamic places. Employees, vendors and customers constantly come and go, and all can create or be exposed to safety hazards.  

With so much in flux, everyone on your team must be vigilant for safety issues. Common challenges include slip and fall issues, blocked exits, unsafe stacks, potential falling objects, ergonomics, workplace violence, electrical issues and more. 

The best way to avoid compliance problems is to prepare. This webinar will teach you and your team where to focus, what to expect from OSHA and how to handle government inspections. It will address major issues in warehouse safety and health compliance, including:

  • What is OSHA looking for? Frequently cited safety and health standards in the industry.
  • How do I avoid trouble? Tips for ensuring/enhancing compliance.
  • When will OSHA show up? Triggers for OSHA inspections at warehouses.
  • How do I handle an OSHA inspection? What to expect, tips and strategies.
  • Workers Compensation considerations.
