McKinley to Offer CEUs for Fall Meetings
Posted: Sep 08, 2020
The McKinley Chapter is pleased to present our fall meeting lineup and offer Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for the first time. Participants must attend all three webinars to receive 0.3 CEUs (no partial CEUs).
September 14 at 12pm ET: “OSHA and COVID-19”. The world is facing a pandemic unlike we’ve seen before in modern times. Cases of COVID-19 are climbing across many U.S. states. As we slowly return to “normal” activities, we also must recognize that this pandemic is far from being over. We must understand our role as safety managers as well as that of OSHA and how to prepare and respond appropriately.
Presenter Chris Banyai, CSP Occupational Safety Consultant for Safety Controls Technology, will prepare participants to understand the current enforcement guidelines issued to OSHA for COVID-19 cases, understand what to consider when putting together a pandemic response plan, and be familiar with the 8 existing OSHA standards that may be used to issue COVID-19 related violations.
October 13 at 12pm ET: “Working remotely or from home? How to reduce your exposure to ergonomic risk factors.” The global COVID-19 pandemic is world continuing longer than anyone imagined and is far from over resulting in many employees working from home or in remote offices. Some of these employees may continue to work remotely or from home for extended periods of time. In fact, some may never return to a traditional office setting at which safety and health managers and ergonomists traditionally work and inspect.
Presenter Kelly Ott, Ergonomist with the Division of Safety and Hygiene at the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, will prepare participants to identify ergonomic risk factors; their impact and contributors; relate ergonomic risk factors with how work is being performed; determine and select possible low-cost solutions to help reduce or eliminate exposure to ergonomic risks while working remotely; and review solutions that have been implemented and adapt, modify or change as needed.
November 9 at 12pm ET: “AEDs in Depth”. AEDs are important aspect of any local school, church, workplace or where ever a gathering of mass people will occur. In the US there are 10,000 cardiac arrest cases in the work place each year according to OSHA, and only 50% of employees know where the AED is located in their facility.
Presenter Tim Palmer, Safety Specialist with Colony Hardware, will prepare participants explain the value of having AEDs available for use; identify a situation in which to use an AED; evaluate whether an AED is ready to use; recognize the value of having an AED in a facility or jobsite; and describe what proximity is recommended for the effective use of an AED.2020-Fall-Meeting-Lineup-Advertisement-CEUs.pdf
