3 Days / 2.1 CEUs
This seminar builds upon your knowledge, as a safety professional or a supervisor/manager, to develop competence and sharpen skills in the techniques that support hazard discovery and the assessment and control of risk. You will receive guidance in the management of limited resources for the optimum control of risk. Attendees develop skills at recognizing/identifying hazards and at assessing the risks posed by those hazards using practical, uncomplicated techniques drawn from the field of System Safety practice. Methods are learned for determining limits within which risk should be considered acceptable, and for using limited resources to control risk within those limits of acceptability. Workshop sessions sharpen competence with the newly acquired skills, leaving the participant capable of using the techniques in practical workplace settings.
Attendees will acquire a practical background in the fundamentals of risk management - the "System Safety" approach
Learn methods of discovering/identifying hazards that threaten employees, equipment, the product, productivity, and the environment
Practice uncomplicated techniques for assessing risks in both occupational and complex systems settings
Discuss methods for judging the acceptability of risks
Become familiar with methods for prioritizing hazards for risk reduction
Increase skills through practical case studies

Workers' Compensation is a major source of cost to any business. Even in today's competitive insurance environment, few safety professionals understand the direct relationship between worker injuries and workers' compensation insurance cost.
This seminar will fill in the gaps in the safety professional's knowledge of the system. The seminar will demonstrate how the ultimate cost of workers' compensation insurance is determined by the type of plan, the employer's short and long-term loss experience, and the care with which the organization audits the computation of premium. It will address the impact of experience modification, retrospective rating plans, payroll classification and audit tips, identification of problem claims, return to work strategies, and other opportunities to produce measurable reductions in insurance cost.
Participants will discuss the coverage provided by Workers' Compensation insurance
Make the workers' compensation rating system work for the organization
Identify primary sources of the organization's own loss experience and target safety efforts toward these loss sources
Return injured employees to productive work quickly
Aggressively manage claims to control medical and indemnity cost
Allocate workers' compensation costs to business units
