Safety Management and OSHA Compliance

Safety Management and OSHA Compliance 1

Why is Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance necessary? For a simple reason: OSHA compliance is the surest legal way of ensuring safety at the workplace. Safety management and OSHA compliance go hand in hand and are deeply connected to and intertwined with each other. Safety management is at the core of OSHA and is the very purpose for which OSHA regulations were legislated. This is why safety management and OSHA compliance are so strongly related to each other.

OSHA has regulations for ensuring the safety of workplaces in almost any industry that one can think of. Compliance with these regulations is necessary for not only ensuring the safety of workers at the workplace; it is also necessary to avoid paying hefty fines that noncompliance results in. knowledge of safety management and OSHA compliance and the way they work is crucial for any company for these core reasons:

  • Violation of any relevant OSHA regulation leads to high penalties in the form of fines. Such an organization can also expect to face suspension of their activities

 

 

  • More than anything else, an organization that violates the provisions and requirements of OSHA can become responsible for employee injuries and even death at the workplace. Such an organization faces additional costs. Its production capabilities suffer, leading to delayed output.

Management systems should be built on expansiveness and versatility

Management systems should be built on expansiveness and versatility. Only such a system delivers results for an organization. First of all, let us get a basic understanding of a management system: It is a system that helps smoothens and streamlines an organization functioning, enabling it to go on without hiccups.

The purpose of a management system is to put the organization on the road to the destination it has chosen for itself. This is done by instilling a system in which there are a defined set of prescriptive and hierarchical documents, and are well-defined. A prudent management system is one that enables the organization to carry out a host of dispersed functions and activities, so that time and resources are spared.

What an organization’s management system should address is an important question. Ideally, it should consist of a set of standards and practices that addresses all the aspects of the organization’s safety, health and environment management. Such a management system greases the whole process and brings efficiency, consistency, cost-effectiveness and timeliness into it.

A pivot for health and environment management systems

Businesses that use their assets for setting up and creating inputs for the various standards around the functions are effective ones. This is a proven and effective method of optimizing the efficiency of management systems, and becomes the foundation on which decisions concerning the way resources are spent within the Safety, Health & Environment (SH&E) scope of business are made. That is, a management system that becomes a hinge around which an array of functions can be performed is an efficient and effective one.

A proper management system has safety, health and environment at its core. The key to build an SH&E system that is designed along these lines is being able to first thoroughly evaluate their requirements. Organizations also need to have the farsightedness to anticipate the likely changes that could go into these functions over time. The management systems they build must have the strength, resilience and flexibility to absorb these changes. An organization that builds an SH&E system that fails to take these into account is doomed to failure and is sure to be a huge financial burden.

What can a management system that takes SH&E into consideration achieve?

The benefits of building an SH&E-accommodated management system are many. It can be used to or helps in:

o  Identifying everything that has to be managed within the function

o  Constructing a mechanism, tool, or process that manages each of those things identified. These are normally a set of standards, practices and programs that are built specifically for a particular function

o  Building the standard, practice or program so that it can be adjusted according to results

o  Building a measuring metric, benchmark or scorecard with both lagging and leading indicators

o  Building the management system in a way that is hierarchal in structure within the organization – (corporate sets and standards and the business unit builds the practice around the standard)

More on how to build a sound SH&E management

GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for the regulatory compliance areas, will organize a two-day seminar in which the principles to adapt and the thinking needed to cultivate the outlook for building such a management system will be imparted.

The Director of this seminar is James J. Thatcher, President and Owner, Global Safety Solutions LLC., who is listed as an expert witness for operational, as well as safety, health, environmental, training and security issues in the Oil and Gas industry and the mining, minerals and chemical industry. Please register for this seminar by visiting http://www.globalcompliancepanel.com/control/globalseminars/~product_id=900844SEMINAR?linkedin_SEO .

This seminar has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.

In-depth exploration of SH&E management systems

At this seminar, James will make an in-depth exploration of management systems in the health and environmental areas. A complete understanding of SH&E, plus Training and Security (TS), which are the functions around which standards and practices are built, will be offered. He will also offer a description of the 16 functions that cover the SHE & TS world in detail. This learning is important in helping participants understand ways by which to build a standard and practice around all these 16 functions.

The 16 functions that will have a standard and practice specific to the function are:

o  Hazard identification & control

o  Occupational health & industrial hygiene

o  Incident management

o  Emergency preparedness

o  Environmental

o  Regulatory compliance

o  Reporting performance

o  Managing risk

o  Managing safety

o  Management security

o  Verification & audits

o  Document & record management

o  Contractor & service provider management

o  Competency management (training)

o  Commitment, communication and implementation

o  Managing change

In addition, in order to enable clear understanding of the topics, James will also describe the role of supporting documents, associated programs, procedures or Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) that are a part of the particular function being managed,.

How to build a complete Safety, Health & Environment Management System through Standards & Practices 2017

 

 

Course “How to build a complete Safety, Health & Environment Management System through Standards & Practices” has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.

Overview:

A management system, by definition, is a process by which a function or functions are carried out in an organization by a series of hierarchal documents that are prescriptive, and set a particular path on which the organization manages its day-to-day operations.

A management system can be for one function, but more often than not, it incorporates many functions. Functions like accounting, engineering, banking, etc. have their own management systems, and the Safety, Health and Environmental, as well as Training and Security should have their own management system. This brings efficiency, consistency, cost effectiveness and timeliness to the entire process.

In order to work effectively, Corporate sets and creates (with business asset) input, the various standards around the functions

The SH&E, plus training and security are the functions we will build the standards and practices around. There are 16 functions that cover the SHE & TS world. We build a standard and practice around all 16 functions. Supporting documents, associated programs, procedures or standard operating procedures (SOP) will be a part of the particular function being managed. The 16 functions that will have a standard and practice specific to the function are:

  • Hazard identification & control
  • Occupational health & industrial hygiene
  • Incident management
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Environmental
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Reporting performance
  • Managing risk
  • Managing safety
  • Management security
  • Verification & audits
  • Document & record management
  • Contractor & service provider management
  • Competency management (training)
  • Commitment, communication and implementation
  • Managing change

Why should you attend :

Every organization in today’s business atmosphere, in order to be competitive and in compliance must have a comprehensive management system in place and operating smoothly. For those companies who do not understand this, the going is much harder and very much more expensive.

The standards and practices that are put in place act as the cornerstone for decisions being made relative to resources and dollars spent within the SH&E scope of business.

This process accomplishes the following:

  • Identifies the things that need to be managed within the function
  • Construct a process, tool, or mechanism that best manages each of those things identified
  • They are usually a set of standards, practices and programs that are built specifically for a particular function
  • Build the standard, practice or program so that it can be adjusted according to results
  • Build a measuring metric, benchmark or scorecard with both lagging and leading indicators
  • Build the management system in a way that is hierarchal in structure within the organization – (corporate sets and standards and the business unit builds the practice around the standard)

 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • How to build a SH&E management system
  • How to evaluate its effectiveness
  • The tools you need in order to build a SH&E MS
  • How to implement the system with total management support
  • How to develop successful implementation plans, both with management and the workforce
  • How to tell the difference between a standard and a practice
  • How to understand how to design SH&E documents correctly
  • How to assess the risk of not having a MS process in place
  • How to roll the process out
  • How to communicate the process to those who can support the effort

  • Compliance Managers
  • Production Managers, Directors, VP
  • Legal Managers
  • Quality Auditors
  • Operational Leaders (managers, directors, VP)
