Ethical Decision Making Tools for Enhancing Organizational Safety Culture

Presented in partnership with the Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health

Earn 2 Contact Hours

Health and safety programs function largely in the realm of prevention – on a good day “nothing happens”.  But as a profession, we often don’t discuss the tension that arises between our loyalties to our clients (the workers) and to upper management (our employers).  In this webinar, we will describe the link between safety culture and managing conflict in dual loyalty settings, and we will equip you with tools to reestablish trust and to make positive changes in your organization.
