November 30th, 2016 (11 AM Central)
*Special discount for WISE members - check your email!*

Regardless of well-intentioned planning, by 2020 40% of the workforce will consist of independent contractors. This type of work may not appeal to all, but many safety professionals may find themselves in at least a temporary position of independent contractor while between positions. By the end of this session, attendees will have a foundation of knowledge for this type of role and where it may fit at different points along their safety career path.

  • Identify where you are on your safety career path and where you would like to be.
  • Describe some career path options you may not have thought of before, or did not think were within your possibility.
  • Create a foundation of working knowledge of insurance, proposal writing, invoicing, and other elements of a freelance or independent contractor role.
  • Develop an action plan related to your individual career goals.
  • Define some ways to mentor and coach others who may be interested in safety, but are not safety professionals yet.
