NEW THIS YEAR at the 2015 NECA Safety Professionals Conference

HR and the Safety/Risk Management Relationship – Keith Wheeler, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

The roles of the HR professional and the safety/risk management professional are often intricately intertwined within many organizations.  They may even be blended into a single role within many companies.  And in addition to the day-to-day employee administration activities, HR and Safety professionals also have responsibilities for compliance with all state, federal, and local requirements regarding employment laws and regulations.  This session will focus on these two roles, responsibilities, and ultimately the liabilities HR and Safety professionals face in ensuring employees are fully engaged, motivated, and following established safety procedures.
