Speaker: Richard Tobin, CEO & President of Bongarde/SafetyNow
About the Webinar
COVID-19 has shaken the world economy and forced so many aspects of business to change. However, now, more than ever, there is an opportunity for OHS to guide businesses back to work and back to profitability. Safety training methods will need to change through this pandemic. Not only do we need to educate employees quickly on new safety standards, regulations, and hazards, but traditional methodologies are not going to be effective in a social distancing work environment. Join Richard Tobin, CEO of Bongarde/SafetyNow as he discusses how safety training needs to pivot in the post-COVID world, the opportunities to improve OHS programs, and how to improve businesses’ bottom line while being mindful of a new OHS world.
