Undeniable Proof That You Need Construction-OSHA 2019

Many employers consider an OSHA Safety Program as a burden on their time and resources. They could not be more mistaken in their thinking than this. Considering an exercise that potentially saves them hundreds of thousands of dollars as being such is nothing other than a misplaced notion. It is only when employees suffer from injuries at the workplace and OSHA discovers that the workplace did not have the proper OSHA regulations in place that employers start feeling the heat of the non-implementation of this regulation.
It is to help them avoid such a scenario that, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of regulatory compliance, is offering a webinar on September 24. For this session, brings the well-known California-based independent broker, Gary Heppner, as the expert. Please log on to to register for this session and gain very valuable lessons on how to avoid OSHA enforcement.
Construction is among the highest rated industries for the hazards it poses. This is natural, considering that many of the core activities in this industry are liable to causing serious body harm. Any of its activities, such as construction, alteration, and/or repair, require its workers to engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards. Falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos...these are just some of the serious issues that could happen in the construction industry.
This webinar will highlight all aspects of hazards in the construction industry and what steps organizations and employees can take to stay compliant with the regulations prescribed by OSHA. Gary will explain how staying compliant by receiving the necessary training is far less expensive than having to cough astronomical sums in penalties that noncompliance invites.
An employer who avoided a $150,000 lawsuit from an employee is just one example of how OSHA implementation can save huge penalties. When California fixes the minimum citation for OSHA at $18,000 and other states keep it at $12,700, one can get a sense of proportion of OSHA noncompliance.
All these can be avoided by conceiving and implementing a well-designated blueprint of OSHA regulations, whose importance is the main learning this webinar will offer. Besides this vital information, the speaker will also highlight another matter of crucial importance to OSHA: whistleblowing. He will show how to guard against whistleblowers and how to be aware of a possible whistleblower. He will suggest steps that employers can take before whistleblowing happens.
These are the areas that will be covered at this session:
  • What does OSHA want to review when they come calling"?
  • What you can do to prevent accidents
  • What you can do to retain control of an injury once it occurs
  • How to deal with supervisors who aren't sure what their responsibilities are regarding safety
  • Why enforcement is so important
  • Other subjects that are related that will be addressed
    • How to reduce the possibility of litigation by providing proper training to HR and supervisors
    • How to investigate a reported injury to reduce litigation
    • Some tips I have learned that can be very helpful
This session is of high value and importance to professionals whose work involves OSHA implementation. These include Construction Attorneys, Construction Company Executives, Contractors Project Management Staff, Subcontractors, Construction Managers and Project Owners and Sponsors.

The Proper Way to Correct I-9 Documents and Not Pay Penalties

Surprising as it might sound, many employers are either unaware of I-9 documents penalties and fines, or are willing to take the risk of noncompliance. This is a very bad situation to be in, something that has been compounded by the fact that the regulatory agencies are communicating more than ever before on this topic. The way in which the departments communicate with each other makes it easier for them to target employers.
Yet, the fact is that most complaints come from disgruntled employees, while others come from audits of target industries. Moreover, the DHS developed a new I-9 Form effective from January 21, 2017, which has to be used immediately. This makes it imperative for employers to be aware of all the new guidelines for completing the new I-9 form as well as the ongoing regulations.
A webinar that is being organized by, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will give proper understanding and perspective on t…

Identity theft is one of the foremost issues for the banking industry. It goes without saying, from an observation of any of the patterns that the fraudsters use for theft, that they are smart. They devise innovative ways to circumvent the system. For example, they don’t use their real name, address or social security numbers when logging in.

Fashion industry ‘waking up’ to benefits of blockchain technology, robotics

Blockchain and robotics are becoming increasingly popular in the global fashion industry as brands look to increase transparency and improve efficiencies, according to GlobalData.
While it is still in its infancy, blockchain technology has the potential to transform the global supply chain, says Michelle Russell, apparel correspondent at GlobalData. She says that during the last few years, the adoption of blockchain technology amongst apparel and textile companies has grown substantially as the pressure to have more visibility in the supply chain ramps up.
“Its uses are varied as companies use the ledger to address problems in unethical behaviour, excess waste, the origin of goods, and counterfeiting.”
German start-up Retraced recently launched a blockchain-based transparency solution that it is trialling with a number of fashion brands. Other examples include OpenSC which received US$4 million in seed funding for its platform that aims to build transparency around commodities known …
