Upcoming Webinar: OSHA Compliance – a Healthy and Save Work Environment

Download: OSHA Webinar – email-print.pdf

Summary of Program

Federal and state OSHA laws protect California workers from unsafe working conditions. However, the federal and state statutes and regulations are complex and can be difficult to understand. Employers often fall short of complying with provisions of Cal/OSHA simply because they are unaware that the law applies to them, or they fail to understand some nuance or technicality contained in the regulations. This short seminar is designed to remove some of the mystery from federal and state OSHA requirements and assist you in managing your business’ compliance with these laws.

Some of the topics to be discussed include:

  • Implement a compliant and effective Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP).
  • Gain an understanding of Cal/OSHA’s latest general industry changes and know how to comply.
  • Avoid enormous Cal/OSHA fines and hassles by regularly assessing your organization’s IIPP, training your employees, and shoring up weaknesses in your safety practices.
  • Better understand what OSHA regulations apply to your industry so you won’t be caught off guard when accidents do occur.
  • Use effective preventive measures to keep you employees and customers safe from threats of workplace violence.
  • Recognize the warning signs that indicate an employee is capable of violence and know how to respond.

Upcoming Seminar: Mandatory AB1825 Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

Download: Seminar-Jun6_no-crop.pdf

Summary of Program

The regulations regarding California’s Mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for supervisors require that certain employers provide training to their supervisors every two years.

The Labor and Employment Group at Weintraub Genshlea Chediak Tobin & Tobin is offering a two hour in-person training session that will comply with all the requirements outlined in the regulations, including things like:

  • an overview of sexual harassment laws;
  • examples of conduct that constitute sexual harassment;
  • lawful supervisory responses to complaints of harassment in the workplace;
  • strategies to prevent harassment in the workplace; and
  • practical and inter-active hypotheticals and examples to help illustrate what sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation can look like.

If you are an employer with 50 or more employees, and have supervisors who have not yet been trained, this training is a must. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you comply with your continuing sexual harassment training obligations.
