    Balancing the Budget and the Heart: A Shift in Perspective with Gabe

    Balancing the Budget and the Heart: A Shift in Perspective with Gabe

    In this episode of "Hard Hats and Hearts," we sit down with Gabe Encarnacion, a seasoned financial analyst who shifted towards a more human-centered approach in business management. Once a staunchly analytical professional focused on the bottom line, Gabe's perspective transformed dramatically after a personal experience that hit close to home—his father's layoff. Through his journey, we explore how businesses can intertwine empathy with tough decisions, particularly during layoffs and significant organizational changes.
    We delve deep into the often overlooked human side of business, discussing the importance of communication. Gabe also sheds light on the innovative front of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), advocating for inclusivity and the need for PPE designed specifically for women and other underserved groups.

    Gabe also shares his insights on maintaining productivity and positivity in the workplace by prioritizing the human element. He provides tangible strategies and real-life examples where human-centered approaches have led to beneficial outcomes for both companies and their employees.

    Tips and Strategies for Preventing and Responding to Workplace Violence Incidents
    Presented by Kara M. Maciel, Rachel L. Conn, and Daniel C. Deacon
    Workplace violence has been a focus for both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) for several years, as it continues to be one of the leading causes of occupational injuries in the country every year. While OSHA has no specific standard for workplace violence, the OSH Act's General Duty Clause requires employers to provide a workplace free from recognized serious hazards, and OSHA has instituted enforcement actions under its General Duty Clause after incidents of workplace violence. OSHA has also initiated a rulemaking to address workplace violence in specific industries.

    California has taken the lead in implementing the first workplace violence rule in the country for general industry, requiring nearly all California employers (unless they fall under one of the limited exemptions) to establish, implement, and maintain an “effective” written workplace violence prevention plan, investigate every incident workplace violence (broadly defined), create and maintain violent incident logs, conduct annual employee and supervisor training, and abide by additional recordkeeping requirements. This general industry rule follows the Cal/OSHA regulation on Workplace Violence Prevention in Health Care.

    The EEOC has also prioritized ways to effectively prevent and address workplace violence, particularly in the form of workplace harassment. And outside of OSHA and the EEOC, employers can also be held liable for workplace violence through other claims such as negligent hiring and supervision.

    Participants in this webinar will learn about:
    - What constitutes workplace violence
    - EEOC and OSHA enforcement priorities related to workplace violence
    - Legal risks associated with workplace violence
    - Updates on federal OSHA workplace violence rulemaking
    - California’s New Workplace Violence law
    - Best practices for workplace violence prevention
    - Tips for responding to a workplace violence incident in your work

    The Uncertainty of...Safety Culture Improvement Engineered or Emergent?

    The Uncertainty of...Safety Culture Improvement Engineered or Emergent?

    Join us for a thought-provoking session on the next episode of The Uncertainty of show with James Burnell discussing Safety Culture Improvement: engineered or emergent?
    As humans we are experts at developing engineering solutions which provide a level of Certainty. A popular belief is that Management can envision an ideal safety culture. We can then engineer this desired culture in the same way we design and build a robust machine.
    In this show we explore another region of the real world that is Uncertain and Unpredictable. For context we will look at the Aviation Industry from a Robustness and Resilience perspective.
    Questions we will address:
    Why does the Blunt end of the Safety Spear (regulators, elected officials) prefer a robust approach to improve a resilient safety culture?What if there was a different view of safety culture - not one that can be engineered but one that emerges naturally from systemic changes?How might using sense-making methods and tools be ‘faster, better, cheaper’ to improve safety culture?

Wish the rest of the seasons were like the first

The first few episodes are what got me to subscribe. I liked the information and the timing of them. Perfect for a short commute. The next season went in a completely different direction.
