North Country Safety Day 2022

North Country Safety Day 2022

We’re back with in-person Safety Day in Potsdam!

May 18, 2022
8:30am to 3:30pm

Join CITEC for a day of discussions, presentations and networking for North Country safety professionals. 

Confirmed topics include:

Turning It Around
Safety programs that don’t change and grow can easily become box-checking exercises that don’t reflect the importance of the job they are entrusted with. Tim Newton at Neenah Papers will offer a short presentation about turning around a stale safety program, and the innovative tools he uses to fight inertia. Small group discussions follow to bring out additional tools and adaptations that may be used at different facilities. 
Tim Newton, Safety Coordinator at Neenah Papers
Sharon Van Auken, CITEC Business Advisor

Safe Digging Best Practices and an Overview of the One Call Process
Join UDig NY to learn how and when to contact 811 before you dig. We will cover best practices that excavators can use on the jobsite to prevent damages to underground utilities. 
Samantha Jo DeMonte, UDig NY

OSHA Recent Findings / Q&A
Learn how to improve your safety efforts by hearing what OSHA is focusing on and what other companies have recently been cited for. Always a popular portion of the Annual North Country Safety Day, this is an ideal time to ask questions of our OSHA representative and our safety experts.
Jeff Prebish, OSHA Syracuse Area Director

The Benefits and Risks of Workplace Stretching Programs
Workplace stretching programs have been touted as reducing cumulative trauma injuries and improving overall safety for many years. But what can these programs actually be expected to provide, and what are the best ways to implement these programs? Are there unforeseen costs to implementing a stretching program, and how can we best measure the success of these programs? Kate will provide some local examples and dig into the data. 
Kate Chepeleff, CITEC Business Advisor
