OSHA – 4 Letters that Pertain to Every Business

Date: Wednesday, February 20, 2019
Time: 7:30 am - 9:00 am
Location: Beck’s - Airline Rd

Did you know:

  • Regardless of company size or NAICS code, there are some issues that must be reported to OSHA within 8 or 24 hours?
  • Some companies are required to keep an OSHA 300 log and some may be exempt?
  • Electronic submission of OSHA logs began last year and the deadline for 2018 submission is March 2, 2019?

The Occupational Safety and Health Association, also known as OSHA, was created in an effort to reduce injuries, illnesses, and deaths in the workplace. Unfortunately, it can be confusing and difficult to understand what OSHA regulations pertain to your business and what you must do to comply. Being unaware of a rule change won’t help should OSHA show up at your business.

The team of JC Michaelson Consulting will answer these questions and more as they go over Injury and Illness Recordkeeping. Please join for an informative presentation that is informal and open to discussion and questions. The team offers a combined 50+ years of experience with workplace injuries, recordkeeping, and the challenges and confusion that some rules offer. Join in and hear some wacky stories that have truly happened and how you can decrease your own risk.

Branding Yourself – How to use Social Media to Promote Business

Date: Monday April 8, 2019
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Location: TBA

Social media has become the standard marketing method for many small businesses trying to reach a targeted or local audience. It's cheaper than TV and radio, you can specify exactly who you want to reach, you can talk directly to your customers, and you can measure your successes and failures.

But with so many social networks and people telling you this network or that network is the latest and greatest, how do you know which ones will work the best for you? Which networks should you ignore? And how do you even make it all work for you?

This presentation will show you how to apply personal branding and small business marketing techniques to social media as a way to promote your business, and establish your expertise with customers. You'll learn which social networks will bring the best results, how to establish yourself as an industry expert, and how to avoid the One Big Marketing Sin many businesses commit.

Erik Deckers has owned his own social media marketing and content marketing agency for 10 years, and has co-authored several books on the subject, including Branding Yourself: How to Use Social Media to Invent or Reinvent Yourself and No Bullshit Social Media: The All-Business, No-Hype Guide to Social Media Marketing.
