These workers pose unique safety concerns - often independently-minded, frequently working with minimal supervision, with little control of their jobsites, transitioning between different locations, sometimes working alone or with only a few co-workers. These lone workers can often be prone to strains/sprains, slips/trips/falls, driving and other injuries.
Promoting safe actions and performance can be a significant challenge with remote workers, where observation-based methods are limited. "Plant-style" injury-prevention paradigms don't fit; traditional approaches often don't work or may even backfire.
Founded on experience with many companies, this webinar focuses on strategies for infusing safety motivation and actions in remote workers for successful safety performance.
