Situational Leadership and the Safety Leader

When asked to produce a list of effective leadership behaviors, groups often use descriptors such as; clear direction, empowerment, and provides feedback. When listing ineffective leadership behaviors, words like overbearing, mi-cromanagement, and absent are often cited. We have no problem listing the behaviors based on our experiences. But what is the difference between clear direction and micromanagement, between empowerment and absence?

If your front-line leaders treat everyone the same when it comes to safety, if they don’t understand the difference be-tween leadership and management, and they don’t know how to effectively communicate, they will have difficulty producing consistent positive safety results. This session will explore tools you can use to develop your front-line lead-ers to help you achieve better safety results.

Integrative Ergonomics = Total Worker Health in Action

Integrative Ergonomics offers solutions that extend beyond the desk, embracing Total Worker Health by addressing risk factors, both physical and behavioral, that lead to Muscular Skeletal Disorders. Understand that by defining these risks, you can offer employees a "whole" approach, maximizing both work and life performance.

Integrative Ergonomics explores the benefits of measuring and managing the factors that impede performance and place employees at risk of injury. Employees are the real experts when it comes to their jobs, and are the best source for identifying potential problems and suggesting effective solutions that can help prevent the onset of costly medical conditions. During this seminar we will look at the workstation through a new lens, learn to listen to our bodies to identify areas for potential injury and discomfort, and get to know workstations and adjustments that can be made so that your tools work for you and not vice versa. It is estimated that 80% of ergonomic issues can be solved by minor changes, employee awareness, and responsibility for their own well-being.

By the end of the seminar you will:

  • Understand the benefit of conducting an analysis
  • Learn how to implement solutions
  • Recognize the impact of ergonomic education on reducing claims and cost

Blink! An Innovative and Effective Workplace Stretching and Warm-Up Program

For years, organizations have attempted to integrate stretching into the workplace. The problems encountered in-clude employee resistance, time constraints and difficulty keeping the program alive. This session introduces a fun, simple, practical and EFFECTIVE strategy that has helped organizations bring stretching into the workplace in a way that maximizes participation, reduces resistance and gets great results. Blink is based on a fairly simple concept; Blink-ing! Employees blink all day long in order to keep their eyes comfortable. These blinks take no time at all and the ef-fects are immediate and powerful. Just like eyes, the muscles of the body get fatigued and uncomfortable and just like eyes, all they need is a periodic “Blink” or stretch to keep them fresh and productive.

The Blink process is simple to implement and is a very effective way to reduce the risk of soft tissue injuries. Warming up and stretching at the beginning of a shift is a good thing, but as the day continues the stretches performed hours earlier have lost their impact. The human body functions on a “what have you done for me lately” principle. Regular and brief “Blinks” give the body what it needs, when it needs it. Management likes Blink because it takes very little time and costs very little money. Supervisors appreciate Blink because they don’t need to “babysit” or manage the program. Employees like it because they own the program, and it is personal and customized to them. This session will introduce you to the Blink process and walk you through several real-life examples of companies who have made “Blink” a regular part of their safety program.
