Title: CAL-OSHA Advisor, OSHA Safety Compliance Consultant and Coach, Motivational Speaker on OSHA Safety, Multi-state OSHA Advisor
Are you tired of minor workplace injuries turning into major litigation? Do you want to lower your workers comp premiums with a safety program that really works? “One of my client’s annual premiums dropped by over $50,000 because surcharges were cut due to a reduction of reported injuries,” says OSHA Safety Compliance speaker Gary Heppner, who founded Risk Management Audits to help employers reduce premium costs and create safety programs that work. With over 25 years’ experience as an insurance broker, Gary’s eye-opening presentation shows you how to get your safety program right so your profits rise due to reduced claims, injuries and premium costs. “My goal is to give you a well-run safety program that becomes a profit center instead of an expense,” adds Gary, who’s passed numerous OSHA Audits and has a 95% success rate in reducing premiums.
If you suspect some employees are gaming the system, or you’ve tried everything to create a safe workplace but still see too many reported injuries and loss of time claims, Gary’s talk is for you. He’ll give you immediate ways to cut injury on the job and keep first-aid incidents from turning into first-class lawsuits.
You’ll learn how to:
“Insurance adjustors may tell you they can improve your safety program, but they don’t show you how to fix the problems,” says Gary, who specializes in OSHA Compliance Safety Programs in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. He can evaluate your current program, bring it into compliance with a “Mock OSHA Audit,” and teach supervisors and upper management how to maintain the program going forward. This reduces risk of litigation by as much as 70%, and if you’re facing litigation now or in the future, Gary can assist with your defense.
Roughly 90% of employers have not met OSHA’s “Injury and Illness Prevention Program” requirements (CAL-IIPP), and if OSHA comes calling due to serious injury, you could be fined up to $18,000 for each violation. If your current safety program is based on “we hope we’re getting it right,” your supervisors and upper management need this risk-cutting presentation. Everyone leaves Gary Heppner’s lively talks knowing how to reduce injuries, claims and premium costs and create a safety program that really works.
Supervisors and upper management in the following industries:
Corporations, business and civic groups, non-profits
Executive managers, sales reps, team leaders, HR professionals
