The webinar Preventing Sharps Injuries will take place from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Sept. 15. Key speakers will be Tom Peterson, MD, FAAP, vice president and chief safety officer, Trinity Health, and Ken Smith, CHSP, CIE, CHCM, vice president, HealthCare Safety Services, who will highlight strategies to reduce the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s most common recordable incidents in healthcare.

A Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls Injuries webinar will be offered from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Sept. 24. Participants will hear from experts on the following subjects:

  • Creating a Successful and Engaging Safety Campaign, presented by Anita Henry, senior content marketing specialist, Munson Healthcare.
