Washington, DC, April 5, 2016 - When NAEM members meet next month to discuss best practices for managing environment, health and safety (EHS) compliance, a key area of discussion will be how to frame these programs in terms of overall business risk.
“Even for leaders outside of the EHS function, risk is a readily understood business concept,” said NAEM Program Director Mike Mahanna. “The trend toward using risk to frame EHS compliance management is therefore increasing the visibility of these programs at all levels of an organization.”
The program will begin with a keynote presentation from Tim Meyers, Global Facilities and EHS Leader at General Electric Aviation, which will be followed with sessions on how to manage risks during periods of change, how to communicate the impact of personal behavior on EHS compliance, and how to use audits to identify potential issues.
The conference will also showcase the results of a quantitative benchmark on the development and use of scenario-based audits to reveal uncommon but high impact, events. The survey will include results from the conference attendees.
The annual Compliance Excellence Conference will be held on May 11-12 at General Electric Co.'s Aviation Learning Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. For more information about this event, or to register, please visit http://ehscompliance.naem.org/index.php.
