Workplace Safety Webinar Series
Thursday, January 6, 2022 – 11 AM to Noon


This event is for business owners, presidents, safety, HR and plant management, construction superintendents and project managers


For industries like construction and manufacturing with inherent safety risks, worker injuries can occur – despite the best safety practices. OSHA has a set of rules and regulations for how injuries or illnesses should be investigated, documented and reported. While these are valuable to assess your safety and health needs, filling out OSHA reporting forms can sometimes be confusing.

Is your company clear on what constitutes a recordable injury or illness in these circumstances? It’s imperative you do.

In fact, capturing and submitting the correct information along with leveraging your data is a key part of building a strong safety culture. This information helps you evaluate the safety of your workplace, determine where the hazards are, and understand the important steps you can take to reduce and eliminate injuries and illness in the future.

This webinar has been approved as a Continuing Education (CE) credit by the Midwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health.  If you have questions about earning CEUs, please send an email to
