There is no question that investigating incidents is a central part of any EHS management system. However, there is are risks associated with placing too great an emphasis on incidents. You may never hear about unsafe conditions that don’t lead to an incident, or the many injuries that employees don’t consider serious enough to report.
In this webinar, Mauri Paz, PE, PMP, CEM, provides guidance on how to implement an event reporting system that allows and encourages all employees to report a greater range of events - near misses, injuries and property damage – as well as incidents. He will show how your EHS team can benefit from a much richer data set, including information on where hazards exist in your workplace, and how you can address these hazards before incidents occur.
Watch this webinar and learn:
- How to address latent EHS problems through proactive event reporting policies.
- The benefits of implementing a portal or other simple event reporting tool.
- Why you should integrate reporting across your EHS teams, and leverage automation to notify different stakeholders about actions.
- How involving your employees in reporting increases employee engagement in EHS.
