Safety Forum in Plano, TX
June 25 & 26, 2018

Event Workshops Include...

Increasing Employee Engagement & Empowerment Utilizing a Recurrent Risk Assessment Approach
Presented by Robert Sheninger, CSP, CSHM – Vice President – Health, Safety & Environment, 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.

Key Takeaways:

  • Overview of the ten sources of hazardous energy
  • The paths or spaces where people, property or the environment (if present) could be exposed to releases of, or contact with, hazardous energy.  Also referred to as “Harm's Way".
  • The circumstances in which people, property or the environment are exposed to releases of, or contact with, hazardous energy within the hazard zone and could be harmed (immediately or over of a period of time) if a hazardous event occurs. Also referred to as being “In Harm's Way".
  • The events including one or more unplanned and unwanted occurrences (i.e. an event or chain of events), over a short or extended period of time, in which a hazard's potential is realized as an incident, such that hazardous energy is released and/or is contacted and could result in harm to people, property or the environment (if in the hazard zone). Includes an "initiating event or cause" of the incident and the resulting consequences.
  • Utilization of the hierarchy of risk controls from most effective to least effective (elimination, substitution, engineering, administrative, PPE)

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.

Without a doubt, developing an IIPP can be a beneficial way to protect a company’s employees, reputation and bottom line.
