"Safety for Newer / Seasonal Workers"
One of the greatest challenges for companies, in today’s business climate, is staffing. Human resources departments spend a lot of time recruiting and hiring highly qualified personnel to meet company goals and meet deadlines. For other positions, that do not require advanced training, employers often turn to temporary or seasonal employees. Temporary or seasonal employees are often viewed as a “convenience” or a “plug and play solution” to meet short term company goals and expectations. However, OSHA regulations are clear that these temporary employees are entitled to training on how to work safely in your business BEFORE they start working! This month’s presentation will discuss some techniques and tools you can use to keep those employees safe, without requiring an extensive time commitment.

Our Presenter: Jeff Schell, Twist Inc.
Jeff is the Safety / Training Director at Twist Inc., which has facilities located in Xenia and Jamestown. Jeff spent seventeen years working as an engineering technician with a major automotive supplier located in Moraine, OH. When much of the company’s production was transferred away from the Dayton area, he changed his focus to education. Jeff immediately used his newfound availability to earn his Bachelor’s And Master’s Degree in Education from the Wright State University. In 2008, he began teaching English and Social Studies at a non-traditional high school in Dayton, with a focus on career skills and dropout prevention. Education is still a major part of Jeff’s life as he teaches his fellow employees how they can be safe and productive in their professional lives.
