On Tuesday, May 7, 2024, at 11:00 AM EDT, Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., Fisher Phillips Partner will conduct a live NATE webinar titled, “Managing Safety Risk Takers: Management and Legal Disciplinary Strategies for Employees who Disregard Safety Obligations.”

Without a disciplinary component as part of your enforcement policy for legal discipline of employees who disregard safety obligations, the possibility of effectively using the unpreventable employee misconduct/isolated incident defense to vacate the citation, “even though the employer maintained an effective safety program the cause of an accident was the unsafe act of the employee,” is unlikely.

This program will provide participants with a roadmap for developing and “institutionalizing” an effective enforcement strategy, including infraction discipline that could be the missing ingredient to your existing program. This program will also examine the four-part burden of proof the employer must establish for the unpreventable employee misconduct defense to be utilized.

Learning Objectives:

  • Write a comprehensive, clear, and fair legal discipline policy for workers who disregard safety obligations that will stand the scrutiny of all parties including unions and OSHA.
  • Identify the key components that must be included in your legal discipline strategy for workers who disregard safety obligations.
  • Determine which departments such as legal, human resources, communication, safety, and management should be involved in developing and implementing your legal discipline strategy and policy for workers who disregard safety obligations.
