#HRTailgate Preview: Workplace Safety

Each month during our HR Tailgate Twitter chat, we discuss HR trends and topics ranging from workplace wellness to employee engagement. For our August chat, workplace safety takes center field. No matter what field you’re working in, everyone deserves a safe and hazard-free work environment. Employers need to make safety an integral part of their day-to-day operations as well as their overall company culture.

Our sixth HR Tailgate, “Gear Up for Workplace Safety,” will delve into how to help companies empower employees to be part of a safety culture. Join us on Tuesday, August 16, from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. CST for an engaging chat led by guest hosts and workplace safety experts Construction Executive magazine and Andrew Scott, Director of Risk Management at G&A Partners.

If you’ve never been involved in a Twitter chat, don’t fret — it’s simple and fun. A Twitter chat is a live conversation focused on a topic — for this month, ours is workplace safety. The chat is guided by eight questions; chat participants can engage in dialogue with chat hosts and other chat participants by answering the questions and using the hashtag #HRTailgate. (Forbes shares everything you need to know about a Twitter chat in this article.)
