Find out the proper way to develop and implement a disciplinary program for unsafe workers.

More than 80 percent of workplace accidents are triggered by unsafe acts, rather than unsafe conditions, yet employers are held responsible by OSHA for the violative actions of employees. While employee discipline is a critical component of the affirmative defense, OSHA is also scrutinizing both discipline and incentive programs more rigorously and is bringing a record number of whistleblower actions against employers.

This topic helps the persons responsible for enforcement of safety rules and employee discipline to understand how to effectively structure disciplinary programs, as applied to unsafe workers and others in need of performance modification, and avoid the legal land mines that can give rise to OSHA enforcement, employment discrimination claims, and worker retaliation claims.
