Balancing Safety with Other Legal Obligations in Today’s Workplace

You don’t want to miss this! Listen to practical advice on important safety issue management.

In order to maintain a safe workplace and show due diligence, sometimes employees may need to be disciplined when they break safety rules.  When should that discipline for a safety infraction mean termination of employment?  What happens if an employer gets it wrong and terminates when they shouldn’t? What happens when there are human rights issues raised as the reason a safety rule can’t be followed? This session will provide practical advice on when to discipline, when to terminate, and how to do so in such a way as to limit liability for wrongful terminations, all while balancing human rights obligations.

What knowledge will I gain?

  • When and how to apply the principles of progressive discipline
  • How to recognize human rights issues and how to balance human rights with safety
  • How to discipline employees and terminate employees legally

Who should attend?
Occupational Health and Safety Professionals, Human Resource Professionals, Disability Management Professionals, Senior and General Managers, Supervisors

IPAM Breakfast Meeting

Join your IPAM colleagues on Friday, November 3, 2017 for an interesting session as outlined below:

SAFE Work Certified with YOU!

Your actions or inactions have a profound impact on workplace safety, productivity and cost.  Why not walk the talk, set a positive example to motivate others, and join hundreds of other Manitoba workplaces in their efforts to make our province the safest place to live and work?

Attend this presentation and learn the steps involved in achieving and maintaining certification! The SAFE Work Certified Program is currently being delivered through a network of industry based safety programs/associations designated as Certifying Partners.  Certifying Partners provide the necessary information, support and training to assist employers in obtaining certification. Beginning in 2018, employers who meet eligibility requirements will qualify for a prevention rebate based on their WCB assessment premium.

The SAFE Work Certified Program utilizes a unique and customized, performance-based audit approach which differs from most traditional compliance based auditing techniques.  It also requires the completion of a safety culture assessment which is used to support the evaluation of the SAFE Work Certified Program, safety culture in Manitoba, and promote continuous improvement.

IPAM BREAKFAST MEETING MARCH 17, 2017

IPAM Breakfast Meeting

Join your IPAM colleagues on Friday, March 17th  for an interesting session as outlined below:

 

The contribution of management system standards to Health and Safety in the workplace

 

This presentation will describe the development and content of ISO 45001, a new consensus standard for the management of occupational safety and health (OHS), now at the Draft International Standard (DIS) stage.  It will also provide information on our Canadian Occupational Health and Safety Management System Standard – CSA 1000-14 and the “suite” of OHS standards that have been developed to support the management of a range of OHS programs in a workplace.

At both the national and international levels, OHS management system standards adopt a risk-based approach that follow the Plan-Do-Check-Act model.  This provides a framework for organizations to plan what they need to put in place to minimize the risk of harm to workers and to other persons who may be affected by its activities.  These standards require the active engagement of top management to demonstrate leadership and a commitment to more than just regulatory compliance – to identify work-related hazards in order to eliminate or minimize those that pose a significant risk.

 

 

About the presenter:

 

Norma McCormick
Corporate Health Works,  Inc.

Norma McCormick is founder and principal of Corporate Health Works, Inc.  She is a member of several CSA Technical Committees: CSA Z1000-14, Occupational Health and Safety Management System, CSA Z1600 – 14 Emergency and Continuity Management Program, CSA 1004 Workplace Ergonomics and TC 1005 now developing a standard on Incident Investigation.  At the international level, Norma heads the Canadian delegation to ISO-PC 283, now developing ISO 45001 an international Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard.

 

 

Learning Outcomes:

  1. The contribution of management system standards to health and safety in the workplace.
  2. An overview of Z1000 and the suite of OHS standards under it.
  3. The progress on the development of ISO 45001 which is expected to replace BSI 18001 as the defacto international OHSMS
