Quality Educational Sessions and Workshops

Beyond meeting with vendors, delegate attendees will have the opportunity to attend informative safety workshops. Here are a few of the sessions we have in store for our June event.

Increasing Employee Engagement & Empowerment Utilizing a Recurrent Risk Assessment Approach
Presented by Robert Sheninger, CSP, CSHM – Vice President HSE & Regulatory Compliance, Talos Energy LLC

Most organizations have a variety of tools in place to identify hazards, yet the quality and effectiveness of these tools is often lacking. Inadequate hazard identification often leads to incidents because organizations have not invested the time and effort to develop a robust hazard identification and control process. This session will focus on the synergies created by incorporating existing hazard identification tools (Job Safety Analysis, Behavior-Based Observations, Incident Investigations, Management of Change) into a continual risk assessment methodology that ultimately gets more people involved in the HSE process while promoting use of Stop Work Authority.

The Impact of a High Participation Safety Culture
Presented by Josh LeBrun – President & COO, eCompliance

Increasing worker levels of participation have a direct impact on reducing injury rates. The audience will gain an understanding from a specific research study that directly alludes to this conclusion. The audience will also be walked through the 5 steps to strengthening your safety culture.

Developing an Effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program to Proactively Address Heat-Related Risks
Presented by Todd Waldhauser – Director, Sales, Portacool, LLC

As a basic written workplace safety program, an effective IIPP can improve the safety and health in every workplace. It can be a proactive way to mitigate costs ranging from medical treatment to lost productivity that affect both the employee and the company.  Although not required, 34 states in the United States have established laws or regulations designed to require or encourage IIPPs.  Fifteen states have mandatory regulations for this documentation. Without a doubt, developing an IIPP can be a beneficial way to protect a company’s employees, reputation and bottom line.

Understanding FR Care & Maintenance, Arc Flash & Flash Fire
Presented by Tom Rachal – Business Development Manager, Bulwark

This session will give the attendees a better understanding of the true effects of what can go wrong in the work place if an employee is not wearing the proper FR apparel during an arc flash or flash fire.  The new OSHA regulations are more defined now and it is the employer’s responsibility to make sure that each one of their employees are outfitted in the proper FR apparel.
