Make Your Work and World a Safer Place with the Safety Experts Podcast
We are excited to announce that on Monday, November 11th we will be launching a new safety resource—the MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast! We will go even more in-depth on the topics we cover in this blog, and since it is a podcast you can listen to it at your convenience, anytime and anywhere that is safe to do so.
Ever wonder how the best companies gear up for their busy season? Concerned about how to keep your staff safe when production demands rise? Can your hiring practices keep pace with the demand for employees? Our episode with Deb Roy, President of SafeTech Consultants and recently retired Corporate Director of Health, Safety & Wellness at L.L.Bean, offers solutions to seasonal workforce challenges so the increased demands don’t upset the balance of safety, quality and productivity.
Our episode on Safety Leadership with MEMIC Loss Control Director Randy Klatt covers what it takes to be a leader and motivate a group of people to accomplish a common goal, how to build credibility and develop trust with your team, and how to communicate with humility so it’s not about you but about the overall mission.
The ABC’s of Dementia with Dr. Heather McKay was one of our most popular webinars and November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month, so we invited Heather back with us to help us recognize the common symptoms and behaviors that are caused by dementia, understand how the progression of dementia affects someone's skills and abilities, and learn how to take specific actions to improve safety for both caregivers and those living with dementia.
Does your back hurt? Is work literally a pain in your neck? Find out from MEMIC’s Director of Ergonomics Allan Brown if workplace ergonomics could be the culprit to some of your most common aches and pains. Good ergonomics is fitting the work to the worker, not the other way around. If you sit down at a workstation or desk or sit in a new vehicle and you don’t adjust anything, then you have to adapt yourself to the machine or tool. If you don’t make adjustments, then you may be exposing yourself to unsafe situations and blind spots. Click here to watch a clip from the podcast.
The Safety Experts Podcast, hosted by MEMIC Safety Management Consultant Peter Koch, will be available on all podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and your smart speaker. It’s a great resource, not just for MEMIC policyholders, but for anyone who cares about their coworkers. Please share the podcast with your coworkers and friends—it could save their life, or at least save everyone from a few unnecessary cuts, strains, burns and bruises.
