The Operations Managers Meeting is fast approaching. Are there operations personnel at your company who could benefit from this year’s program? Here’s some of what they’ll see.
Building a Safety-First Culture
Safety is a uniting element of the manufacturing industry. Everyone knows it’s important and essential to operations, and everyone is trying to improve their record. This year’s meeting will address safety in two ways. First, we’ll hear from safety personnel at several different AWPA member facilities ranging in size from small to large, with an overview of the safety program at their company. Then we’ll hear a panel discussion covering current issues, like how companies are encouraging improvement without awards programs, per OSHA’s new guidelines.
Workforce Development: Employee Retention
It’s no secret. Your best employees have the power to take their skills elsewhere. And that leaves your leadership teams with an enormous challenge: winning the war for top talent! The good news is we already know how to discourage top talent from leaving: keep them engaged. With an engaged workforce, employees work harder, have fewer safety incidents, and are more loyal and profitable to their company. Lisa Ryan, an award-winning speaker and author of ten books, will work with us to develop employee engagement initiatives and strategies that keep your top talent and best clients from becoming someone else’s.
Drug-testing: Best Practices for a Changing Environment
OSHA’s Injury Reporting and Retaliatory Drug Testing Rule has been in the news a lot lately. Part of the rule may be on hold, part of the law is in litigation. Challenges for employers in complying with drug-testing regulations are increasing as more states are legalizing marijuana. How can you make sure your company is in compliance? Janet Kopenhaver, AWPA’s Director of Government Relations, will have the latest information from the National Association of Manufacturers about how to navigate these new requirements.
Who Should Attend? Often employees wear many hats – if you have employees that fall into any of these categories, they will benefit from this program:
