SAFETY AND RISK MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP – MARCH 20 -22

SAFETY AND RISK MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP – MARCH 20 -22

We are presenting a workshop on “Risk Management” and would like to invite you to attend.

Whether you are a community, hospital, government, business, college, or an industry this topic applies. Your activities may be at risk and there is a need to focus on these risks in order to be successful. Every organization has hazards or concerns that have the potential to cause harm to the safety of employees or the public, create unwanted impact on customers, have the potential to harm the environment, the possibility of damage to company assets or to seriously impact the ability to conduct business. Do you know where your concerns or hazards are?

“Risk Management” is a well established global approach used to proactively manage your organizations activities to prevent unwanted incidents from happening. Do you know how to prevent these unwanted incidents from happening and does it work?

Some examples you may be familiar with include: the Deep Water Horizon off shore well failure in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, the sinking of the Costa Concordia on January 13th – 2012, the dust explosions and fires at Burns Lake and Prince George lumber mills in early 2012, or the 2006 sinking of the BC Ferry “Queen of the North” off Vancouver Island, and you may recall the spill of toxic chemicals into Lake Wabamun AB in 2005 and a roof collapsing in a mall in Elliot Lake, Northern Ontario in 2012. “Or your own personal experience after investigating for the basic causes of an unwanted incident in your workplace.” There are many examples reported on a daily basis where incidents have taken place that should not have happened. They could have been prevented.

By including a risk management program the results you may see include:
▪ Improved safety record
▪ Improved ability to compete
▪ Lower operational costs
▪ Lower legal cost
▪ Better product or service quality
▪ Less personnel turnover
▪ Attracting quality employment applicants
▪ Improved community image

Further, most unwanted incidents in the workplace are the result of “Human Factors” issues. This workshop will specifically address this topic with a focus on management responsibility.

This workshop is being offered for the first time and is intended for leaders, managers, supervisors or anyone who is in the role of making decisions. Please review the attached brochure and please contact myself by email or phone at 250.349.5515, should you have any questions.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
