Can you put a pricetag on healthy employees? Each year workplace accidents cost U.S. companies billions of dollars in worker’s compensation claims, lost productivity and overtime costs.
Thankfully, there are organizations that are dedicated to helping companies avoid workplace injuries and create a healthy atmosphere for their employees. One such group is the NH OSHA Consultation Program which will be hosting a free breakfast seminar on Tuesday, September 29th from 8-11:30 a.m. at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord.
Keynote speaker Dr. Jose Montero, the NH Director of Public Health, will be speaking about “Pandemic Flu, Seasonal Flu & Infection Control in the Workplace.” Workshop sessions will include “How Safety Pays in the Construction Industry,” (Rich Lambert, Executive Vice President, Pro Con Incorporated), “The Culture of Safety in a Small Community Hospital,” (Harry Dorman, CEO, Alice Peck Day Hospital, Lebanon, NH) and “The Biggest Loser – How to Get Employees to Lose Weight and Gain Health” (Mark Compos, Materials Manager, Northern Elastomeric, Inc., Brentwood, NH).
Again, the seminar is free and is limited to the first 100 registrants. To sign up, RSVP by 9/18/09 to Teresa Ferrara at firstname.lastname@example.org or 271-4676. To view the conference flyer, visit http://www.nheconomy.com/breakfast-seminar.aspx.
