For leading companies, safety management isn’t just a collection of programs. It is embedded in the company culture, touching each and every employee and influencing behavior on and off the job. Learn how to develop a safety strategy and measure success, and will also feature a variety of tools and systematic approaches to reduce safety risks, drive down injury rates, engage employees and extend safety beyond your company walls.

This session will defy traditional safety thinking and showcase new tools and approaches to drive continuous safety performance improvements. You'll hear how organizations have prioritized risk; how they've focused on high risk areas through Serious Injury and Fatality (SIF) prevention; and how they've managed risk by looking at human and organizational performance.

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
