This international standard provides principles and generic guidelines on risk management… it can be used by any public, private or community enterprise, association, group or individual. Therefore, this standard is not specific to any industry or sector
A robust safety system will have clearly defined and integrated safety activities for all levels of the organization that are regularly measured and incorporated into performance evaluations, similar to other business functions. This takes time and effort to establish. Leaders can demonstrate their visible commitment to safety in various, simple ways.
Risk management has been flying under the radar for years, and those in the profession often had not originally planned to be there. But that may be changing as risk management education programs gain
a foothold. Driven by a tough job market for college graduates in the wake of a slowly turning financial crisis, students are increasingly gravitating to fields where jobs are available upon graduation and a viable career path is apparent.
The safety profession has been in a state of change for many years. This is a good thing for the profession; it must keep current to the customer it serves or it will become stale or worse not be viable. This article takes a look at the safety profession through the eyes of a 40+-year practitioner. The article will compare and contrast the two sides of the safety coin; discuss the skill sets needed to differentiate the two sides; examine loss control in the current perspective; illustrate how to influence safety from inside and outside; discuss how to move toward a common ground.
The aging workforce brings with it the potential for escalating workers compensation costs, particularly since older employees typically experience more severe workplace injuries
and illnesses than younger ones. One of the most effective ways to reduce these costs is through a commitment to workplace safety. A commitment to safety is the key to a successful workers compensation process and cost containment. A successful process creates a better work environment and improves productivity. A commitment to workplace safety makes your company an attractive place
to work, helping you retain employees and reduce employee turnover.
What if we could develop a model that is constructed to be consistent with all other business metrics or key performance indicators (KPIs)? Instead of trying to get business leaders to share our vision, what if we developed a safety improvement process that can be seamlessly integrated into their business strategy? What if we had a business model for preventing injuries?
A summary of the discussion which took place during this Safety 2014 Key Issue Roundtable on Risk Assessment Risk.
EHS professionals are facing increased pressure to diversify their skills and develop new risk assessment techniques. A small size company requested a new product risk assessment and hazard evaluation. The product is intended for export to the European Union and had to meet international standards. On the other hand, the product is manufactured in the USA and the management wanted to implement PtD principles. The authors developed new tools and successfully implemented the new PtD model to evaluate the product.
For EHS professionals to play an integral role in
supporting their organization’s mission, they
must demonstrate value beyond compliance efforts.
Learn how Enterprise Risk Management can
provide a framework for risk and EHS managers to
collaborate in controlling a broad array of risks in
support of an organization’s mission.
This presentation is organized by the Risk Management/ Insurance Practice Specialty will address the issues and opportunities in using the International Risk Management guidelines. A discussion with an expert panel also provides an opportunity for questions and answers from the audience.
The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
Contribute your knowledge and be a part of something big.
