Get It On! - What It Means To Lead The Way Keni Thomas

Former Army Ranger Involved in “Black Hawk Down” Mission The Ranger motto is Rangers Lead the Way. Leadership is the core of every skill developed as a Ranger. Leadership is not a position, but rather an example set by every Ranger. Whether approaching the beaches of Normandy or the mountain ranges of Afghanistan, the world is made better when leadership is owned by each member of the team. Keni Thomas’ stories of Task Force Ranger are extraordinary examples of leadership. And, the stories are not about Generals, Colonels or Captains. For example, Private David Floyd was in charge of one person that day - himself. But his leadership and example saved lives. In the pace of life, it is easy to lose perspective on our value to others. Make no mistake: Your presence is crucial! The individuals to the left and right are directly affected by the result of your actions. Each team is a puzzle with invaluable pieces. When you raise your hand or assume a task, you have put on the “uniform”. Duty follows that responsibility. Good is never enough because better is expected. Keni Thomas helps attendees see themselves in the light of extraordinary. It is a choice made by many each day to impact those around them. It is the ultimate definition of LEADING THE WAY.

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 | 8:00 – 8:20 a.m. Safety Hall of Fame Recipient Don Zietlow

President and CEO of Kwik Trip, Inc. There’s nothing common about Don Zietlow, President and CEO of Kwik Trip, Inc.; a person who, by living the simple rule of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you, has built a vertically integrated business visited by more than five million guests each week. Kwik Trip’s safety mission statement is a direct reflection of the values and beliefs Don expresses each and every day: To encourage and support a safety culture at Kwik Trip which values input from all co-workers, provides the safest work environment possible for its co-workers and guests, and makes a difference in their lives…both at work and at home.

Experience Levels: Sessions have been categorized by experience level, and appear in parentheses after each course title. (1) = Fundamental: For new safety/health personnel or “designated” safety/health personnel with responsibilities from human resources, to production, and now safety. Fundamental sessions and often broad overviews and updates of current topics. Topics tend to be “how-to” compliance issues such as how to develop programs for confined spaces, machine guarding, personal protective equipment, etc. (2) = Intermediate: For safety/health personnel, production supervisors, and human resource managers with experience in working with federal, state and internal employer/employee regulations and procedures. Intermediate sessions offer in-depth examinations of specific safety and health issues and their solutions. (3) = Advanced: For the “full-fledged” safety professional. Advanced sessions are technical in nature and directed at safety directors, human resource managers, risk managers, certified professionals, industrial hygienists and occupational health nurses. Advanced sessions address cutting-edge topics such as the psychology of safety, benchmarking, and cultural changes.

(A) Using Direct Reading Instrument to Assess Chemical, Noise and Heat Exposures (2) 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. .60 CEUs William Fink, CIH, CSP, CHMM, Corporate EHS Programs Manager, Oneida Total Integrated Enterprises John Greivell, Vice President, RAECO LIC, LLC

Brian Harms, PE, CIH, Project Manager, TRC Environmental Corporation

Kay Rowntree, CIH, Industrial Hygiene Consultant, Industrial Hygiene Sciences LLC

Direct reading instruments are used to detect and assess exposures to a wide range of gases, vapors, particles, noise and heat. Measurements may be displayed in real time, or dataloggers can record data over longer periods of time to provide averages. Improper use can put workers at risk of suffering injury or illness. While these instruments can be easy to use, they have limitations and require expertise to use and understand what the data is actually telling you. This course will cover the proper selection, calibration, use, data interpretation and maintenance of a variety of commonly used instruments including multi-gas and single gas monitors, noise dosimeters, particle monitors, photoionization detectors (PID), Flame Ionization Detectors (FID), and heat stress monitors. OSHA requirements for using the instruments and maintaining data will also be discussed. The course is directed toward safety personnel who own or may use these instruments with a focus on practical, rather than the theoretical aspects of instrument use.

Anyone who supervises the work of others is a leader. While spans of control differ and the nature of tasks range from the very concrete to the abstract, leadership styles create cultures, attitudes, and behaviors that either promote success or create obstacles. This seminar helps identify the various styles of people and when and where they are most effective. We will review seven work-related personality traits and perceptions. Each attendee will have a chance to take their own personal assessment prior to the seminar so they can review during the seminar and better understand their strengths and blind spots. Participants will receive an email to a behavioral survey prior to the event from the instructor.

Some employers may feel the need for compliance with OSHA is waning. However, if OSHA compliance is an employer’s primary concern, chances are very good that those organizations are missing out on the benefits of an aggressive safety and health program such as: safer work environment, increased production, higher quality, lower insurance premiums, reduced operating costs and improved employee morale. This compliance course is designed to present detailed information about how the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHAct) may/ must be implemented in the workplace, not only to achieve OSHA compliance, but to achieve profitability and survivability in today’s cost-conscious environment. We will introduce attendees to the OSHA standards that govern General Industry, explain how to read and use the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs), and provide an overview of compliance programs and procedures required for the workplace. Topics covered are intended for all private sector personnel and those public sector employers who utilize Federal OSHA standards as directed by state requirements.

This presentation covers having and effectively communicating expectations for driving records, operation of vehicles, distractions, performing work-related tasks with a motor vehicle and using personal vehicles on company business.

Stefanie Williams, Editor Workplace Safety, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.

Change starts in people’s minds, which is why clear, consistent messages are important.

Methods on how to address perception will be discussed. #52 The Medical/Attendance Quagmire: Solving HR’s Most Vexing FMLA & ADA Issues (1) Alan Seneczko, Managing Shareholder, Wessels Sherman Joerg Liszka Laverty Seneczko P.C.

Intermittent leave. Migraine headaches. Never ending leaves of absence. Illnesses that only manifest themselves on Mondays and Fridays. All these issues have frustrating ramifications under the FMLA, ADA and state fair employment and family leave laws – so much so that HR professionals often find themselves simply surrendering to the inevitable, “There is just nothing you can do about it.” Not true! There are solutions – but they require more thought, analysis and risk than normally associated with other HR issues. This program will tackle all of these issues and provide you with answers to your most vexing questions.
