Management Tip


Get those sick employees out of the office!
They will spread illness to the rest of the team, causing productivity to drop. Also, your under-the-weather employee will appreciate your caring for their need to get better at home.


Safety Rules

If OSHA walked through the door today to conduct a random inspection, would your company be fined for any violations? Many companies can benefit from conducting their own “Mock OSHA Inspection” of their facilities. Those in charge of safety can partner with their workers’ compensation insurance carrier or local safety consultant to evaluate the likelihood of receiving any fines should OSHA pay a visit. Assign a hypothetical dollar amount to each violation, so you can show upper management the overall exposure of compliance-related issues. A mock inspection like this, coupled with the corresponding hazard abatement, may really improve safety and compliance at your company!
