ER Plus Presents a new 1-day workshop:  Safety 2.0

Wednesday November 5 2014 at ER Plus in Richmond

Workers Compensation and Health and Safety as we know it has been around for nearly 100 years. Much of our thinking and many of our practices are rooted in another era.  While workplaces are statistically safer than they’ve ever been, accidents still occurring too frequently in a climate of increasing public attention and legal consequences. There is a growing concern that our present safety management systems, while necessary, are insufficient to get us where we need and want to be.


…are not realizing sufficient returns on their safety investment; safety violations still occur, as do injury claims, jeopardizing their ability to maintain COR and/or pre-qualify for upcoming work. Some seek to hire ‘more effective’ safety officers and managers; others feel that safety is just ‘unwinnable’.

Safety Managers

…are having difficulty successfully administering their management systems. Accidents and injuries still occur despite their best efforts. They feel the solution may lie somewhere outside of the safety program.  Some seek employment at companies with better ‘cultures’, or just quit safety altogether.

Supervisors and Workers

…are becoming increasingly disengaged. They strive to meet their production goals despite ever-increasing rules and bureaucracy. They feel the safety program is there to protect the company, not them.

They face not only the risk, but also usually the blame for incidents and accidents.

These perceptions are unfortunately all too common, but there IS an answer! We just have to ‘do’ safety a little differently!

Safety 2.0…Is a one-day course intended for CSO’s, Construction Managers, and Safety Managers that takes the latest thinking in health and safety and translates it in to practical steps that can be immediately applied in the workplace, including improvements to:

  • Investigations
  • Orientation and Training
  • Discipline Policies
  • Safe Work Procedures
