Meeting Announcement: What To Do In The First Minutes After A Worker Injury

Please plan to come to the next meeting of the South Louisiana STEPS Network on Thursday, July 21 in Lafayette, LA.  My colleague from CORE Occupational Medicine, John Landry, and I will be talking to the group about the importance of handling worker injuries properly and the things that companies should focus on in the first 15 minutes after an injury occurs.

S. LA StepsSTEPS Meeting Details – The STEPS network is a formal alliance between OSHA and the oil and gas injury.  There are 20 different STEPS chapters that meet around the country.  Their goal is to serve as a forum to discuss safety issues and to provide an opportunity for industry and OSHA officials to work towards the safety and protection of oilfield workers.

You can find more information on the South Louisiana STEPS chapter here.

Admission is free and the meeting will be held:

8:30 a.m., Thursday July 21

Safety Management Systems

2916 N. University Ave., Lafayette, LA 70507

Our Speech – We will focus on the steps that companies should take right after an employee is or may be injured.  Study after study shows that the actions you take right after an incident play a large role in determining whether the worker will receive the right treatment, whether the worker winds up on workers comp and how long he or she may stay off the job. We will also answer your questions on how to interpret OSHA reporting requirements from a medical professional’s standpoint.
