Safety & Risk Summit Webinar Series:
COVID-19 Legal and Benefits Update

Date

Thursday, October 7, 2021 | 11:00 am – Noon PDT

Webinar Description

Our second Parker, Smith & Feek Safety and Risk Series webinar will provide an expert update on vaccination and mask mandates, benefits surcharges, and booster vaccinations.

A benefits expert from Benefits Comply will share insight on incentives and how the wellness rules apply. They will answer the following questions:

  • What am I legally allowed to mandate when it comes to masks and vaccinations?
  • What accommodations must I make for my workers who have underlying health conditions or religious reasons for not being vaccinated?
  • What best practices are HR professionals and employers implementing to document and avoid litigation?
  • Can I assign a higher portion of the monthly employee benefits premium to unvaccinated employees?

Safety & Risk Summit Webinar Series:
Cracking the Code on Lower Back Injuries

Date

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 | 11:00 am – Noon PDT

Webinar Description

Parker, Smith & Feek’s Safety and Risk Series third webinar takes a look at back injury with Dr. Kevin Rindal, DC., to share innovative strategies for preventing such injuries.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in five on-the-job injuries involve the lower back. On average, a lower back injury will take an employee out of work for 14 days, which profoundly impacts productivity and carries an expensive price tag along with it. Additionally, these injuries can have a detrimental effect on the worker’s quality of life and long-term health.

This seminar will cover innovative strategies for preventing lower back injuries before they occur, while at the same time building a more resilient workforce. Attendees will also learn very practical concepts for how they and their employees can play an active role in maintaining and optimizing their “movement health.”

Upon registering, you will have the ability to submit up to three questions. This webinar will be recorded and posted on the Parker, Smith & Feek website within a week after the presentation.

Safety & Risk Summit Webinar Series:
Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity

Date

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 | 11:00 am – 12:30 pm PDT

Webinar Description

In Parker, Smith & Feek’s final Safety and Risk Series webinar, a panel of risk and safety experts will share lessons learned from COVID-19 and their experiences and new perspectives on disaster preparedness, disaster recovery, and business continuity planning. The panel will answer the following questions:

  • What policies and procedures have you implemented for risks other than COVID-19 after the past 18 months?
  • Does your leadership view risk and disaster preparedness differently now? Has their risk tolerance changed?
  • How do you go about reviewing your business continuity planning? Are you finding alternative suppliers and vendors?
  • What models and analytics do you use when looking at worst-case scenarios?

Upon registering, you will have the ability to submit up to three questions. This webinar will be recorded and posted on the Parker, Smith & Feek website within a week after the presentation.
