How Does Your Corporate Culture Effect Your Investigations?
The culture that exists within your company greatly effects the success of any investigation and subsequent corrective actions..

Brian W. Tink and Brian A. Tink will show you some ways to quantify & identify your current corporate culture. The session will conclude by suggesting how you can use this information to strengthen your organizational/safety culture, allowing you to develop and execute more effective corrective actions that will, in turn, lead to desired and significantly improved business results.
Communicating with Management About Risk: Effectively communicating HSE risks to senior management is critical. Their support for resources (time and money) is necessary to implement actions that reduce risk. Strong visual communications and other techniques are needed to get the message across in a way that leads to action and increased credibility for HSE issues. One of the keys is to present HSE information from a business perspective.

In this session, Dennis Osmer, former Worldwide Head of HSE will review development of several risk communication techniques (risk assessment in terms of organizational impact & degree of control vs. probability & severity, use of site risk analysis, score cards, involvement in accident notifications, etc.).

Advanced Ideas for Corrective Actions: In this best practice session, Dan Damaan will present how to use risk to rank corrective actions.  The value of determining corrective actions and making recommendations is directly correlated to having senior leaders in an organization “buy in” and support implementing change.

This session provides a high level view of business tools and approaches that can assist EHS professionals in providing effective justifications for proceeding with recommendations that provide an overall benefit for employees and the organization.
