A key issues roundtable discussion Monday afternoon will address how to manage OSH risk and business polarities when there are competing priorities. Too often high visibility incidents cause organizations to switch into “fire-fighting” mode rather than executing their strategy. There are best practices to follow that help align your EHS strategy to address ever-changing business and EHS priorities to drive continuous improvement opportunities.

In order to promote a safer workforce and to maintain compliance with regulatory agencies, such as OSHA, EHS companies must work to quickly and effectively address and mitigate all incidents that take place.

Many organizations use risk management to streamline compliance in an objective and systematic way. Risk is pervasive throughout all areas within an organization. It spans everything from quality to EHS to financial and the supply chain.

The Monday roundtable will be moderated by Tanis J. Marquette, Hexion Inc., Global Sustainability Leader, and Julia C. Bradley, Environmental Consulting & Technology, Project Manager.
