Profitability Through Effective Safety Programs

NRCA University receives funding from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to create and administer roofing safety programs. In this newly developed, day-long program, NRCA University instructors focus on the critical elements of a safety program that can reduce injuries, sustain a productive workforce and increase profitability. Topics to be discussed include:
  • Risk management approach to safety
  • Identification of risks
  • Job hazard analyses
  • Risk transfer techniques and strategies
  • Importance of your Experience Modification Rate (EMR)
  • Essential role of training
  • Effective safety training programs
  • Incorporating bonuses and incentives to manage employee compliance
  • Discipline policies that change behavior
  • Job-specific safety programs
  • Safety committee structure and purpose
  • Management's role in a safety culture
To assist your company in developing a cohesive, written safety program, each participant will receive classroom materials and a resource guide in an electronic format developed specifically for this class. These resources will assist your company in creating a company or job-specific safety program suitable for safety and health compliance and for use in client proposals and submittals.

This class was developed under OSHA Susan Harwood Grant No. SH-18796-09-60-F-17.

One-day class
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
