Additions to the Safety, Process Safety, and Risk Management Track at the Global TapRooT® Summit

I am really excited to announce that we have made a few changes to beef up our Risk Management topics for the Safety, Process Safety, and Risk Management track for the summit.

On Thursday, March 1 from 10:50-noon, we have the following presentation:

Risk Management

Assessing Organisational Risk Maturity – Malcolm Gresham

How do you assess the your organisation’s risk management maturity?  It is no longer sufficient to implement a Risk Management Framework and hope for the best.  Organisations need to assess whether their current level of risk management is appropriate. The Risk Maturity Model provides organisations with a valuable measure of the ongoing development of their ability to manage Risk.

Using the new Risk Management Standard ANSI Z690.2 : 2011 to Assess the Maturity of your Risk Management System – Jim Whiting

How mature is your organisation’s RMS ? This session discusses how to obtain assurance of the maturity, quality,  adequacy of your RMS measured against conformity with the new ANSI Z690.2 Standard for RM Systems. This Standard provides specific audit criteria and guidelines for the  principles, framework, and process required of a ‘Best Practice’ organisation. An audit process using ANSI Z690.2 criteria can be performed on both an Internal / First Party and even a External / Third Party basis. Either way the resulting benefits center on being able to demonstrate internally and/or externally that your organisation is managing risks in an adequate way. Hence the audit results can provide confidence and assurance to your own people as well as external stakeholders. The workshop will discuss how the evidence-seeking questions/ activities in such an audit can be constructed, delivered and their results analysed and reported.

This change also allows for us to create a session, also on March 1, from 9:10-10:30 entitled Risk Management and Safety: Safety Third?

In this session, we have Richard Mesker speaking.  Rich was one of the most highly rated speakers at our last summit, so you will not want to miss this.  Here is what he will be talking about:

When anticipating risk, performing risk analysis, and allocating resources is safety first or is it actually third/fourth/fifth in the priority list? If so, why? We have all heard the mantra of “Safety First.” Let’s find out if in fact safety is first.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Las Vegas!
