    Walking-Working Surfaces: Understanding critical new requirements to prevent slips, trips, and falls

    For years, general industry employers have sought to prevent slips, trips and fall in their workplaces.

This is about to change, however, with the finalization of a new rule that will take major steps in overhauling the existing standard and impact an estimated 6.7 million employers. The most significant changes cover new requirements for a variety of walking-working surfaces. This includes floors, aisles, stairs, ladders, platforms, roofs, etc. This webcast will discuss these changes in contrast to current requirements to help employers understand the totality of the requirements and the impact on their workplace.

    ELDs and IFTA: Making recordkeeping and audits easier

    Join us for an in-depth discussion of the ins and outs of HOS/IFTA/IRP recordkeeping and how electronic logging devices will soon revolutionize your recordkeeping processes. If you want to pass an audit of your compliance with hours-of-service regulations, the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA), and/or the International Registration Plan (IRP), you need to have a comprehensive recordkeeping program. From logs and supporting documents to fuel receipts and distance records, the status of your paperwork could spell the difference between passing the audit with flying colors or being assessed penalties, losing customers, and receiving an unsatisfactory safety rating.

    FMLA: What the courts tell us

    On its surface, the FMLA is quite simple: Eligible employees of covered employers are entitled to limited, unpaid, job-protected FMLA leave for qualifying reasons. While the statute and regulations add more meat to this, many questions remain. For example, what constitutes notice when an employee might need leave? How is “overnight” defined? These and other questions are often answered in the courts. Unfortunately, in order to obtain such an answer, an employer generally needs to be sued.

    This webcast will look at a number of court cases that helped fill in some FMLA questions, so listeners can learn from other employers’ experiences.

    Roadside Inspections in the Electronic Logging World

    Roadside inspections remain to be the primary enforcement tool of the FMCSA. The data generated from these inspections gives the FMCSA, the transportation industry, and most importantly you and your company, all the data you need to be compliant with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. But even more than that, this data can also contribute to your bottom line by pointing out areas that threatens your profit through a drop in productivity, the cost of intervention, and unplanned maintenance cost. With the annual nationwide roadside inspection blitz taking place the first week of June 2017, a heightened awareness on the importance of a clean roadside inspection is in order. Join us as we help you prepare for one of the most common and yet more meaningful cost prevention and safety events in today’s transportation industry. This one-hour webcast will include a question and answer session.

    DOT Auditing in the Age of Big Data

    In the not-to-distant future, the way FMCSA investigates hours-of-service compliance at a carrier is going to change. The reason for the change is that the investigation will be changing from a “paper chase” to a “data search.” In this webcast, we will discuss what carriers need to be familiar with when it comes time for their first audit after installing an electronic logging system, and how to be prepared for it.

    Top FMLA Administration Mistakes…and how to avoid them

    It has never been said that the FMLA is easy to administer. In many situations, an employer’s actions come down to good faith effort. From recognizing what constitutes an employee’s notice of the need for leave, through returning the employee to work, the provisions have ample opportunity for mistakes. The issues could include determining eligibility, determining whether an employee or family member has a serious health condition, providing appropriate notices, or dealing with certifications. This webcast will review the top mistakes and violations and what can be done to help avoid such mistakes. If you have struggled with certain aspects of FMLA administration, you are not alone. Join us and your FMLA colleagues as we discuss not only the issues, but possible solutions.

    Give Me A Break! Am I exempt from HOS or ELDs?

    Failing to have logs or follow hours-of-service (HOS) rules are among the top violations that DOT auditors and roadside officers cite every year. Many motor carriers and drivers think they’re exempt from all or portions of the HOS rules — now including the rules for electronic logging devices (ELDs) — but many drivers who think they’re exempt are not, while others don’t use the exemptions properly. Are you or your employees subject to HOS and ELD rules? Do you qualify for an exemption? From local drivers to construction workers, sleeper teams to e-log users, this webcast will discuss who’s subject to — and who’s exempt from — the hours-of-service and ELD rules, and what you need to do to stay in compliance this year and beyond.
