    Wellness - Based Safety With Jay Jones

    Wellness - Based Safety With Jay Jones

    On this week's podcast we have Jay Jones the safety and training officer for the city of Boulder, Colorado. We will be discussing wellness based safety and how it can be incorporated into your entities or organizations.

    In both wellness and safety programs a common theme would be using proactive and known measures to ensure or enhance the quality of life for all employees within your organization and entity. Wellness enhanced safety programs is another term for taking a proactive approach to injury prevention. By educating all individuals that come through your place of work whether long term or temporary employees that wellness and safety measures ultimately start at home and before they even come to work for the day.

    Benefits that Jay and his municipality have seen are fewer worker compensation claims resulting from happier and healthier workers which has increased job morale, better production and quality of work. On top of this has also been job retention therefore communicating to management that the wellness program has and is working so then Jay and his team were able to increase the parameters of their wellness based safety program.

    Overcoming The Dangers Of Distracted Driving

    Welcome to PRIMA'S 2020 Podcast Series! On this first episode of the year we have Margaret Penado, the risk manager for Coconino County in Arizona, she will be discussing how to overcome distracted driving by explaining some history on how individually driven transportation has evolved over the years.

    The reality is that as technology has progressed our awareness of how powerful the cars and vehicles we operate on a daily basis has declined. Yes, they are not a horse pulling a buggy like in older days but they are not perfect and often have mechanical issues, the operators (drivers) of these vehicles large and small on the road dont necessarily have to 'do' as much which increases the dangers for themselves and others on the road.

    On this week's podcast we have Henry Svendblad he is the Chief Technology Officer at Company Nurse LLC he will be discussing developing excellence in cybersecurity management.

    Cyber security in the public sector?

    Specifically in the current workers' comp public sector it is very inadequate mostly due to the complex systems and outdated online knowledge about online security. Ideally at minimum every organization in this industry that has access to individually identifiable information or health information should follow some of the basic outline of the HIPAA and high tech technical safeguards. So for example, that is making sure that data is encrypted both in transit and at rest, and that the systems that you use provide audit trail capabilities to see who has access to that protected information.

    Why has there been such an increase in cyber attacks?

    Unfortunately, cyber crime has become an established industry and organization that functions ultimately to use techniques like ransomware to freeze and hold large amounts of information and data rather than just receiving and using credit cards from the local person down the street.

    One very common way has been targeted email attacks that mimic a request from a CEO or individual in the company with detailed requests for payroll information or the credentials to the computer they may be using which is known as spear fishing.
