Data Literacy for OHS Professionals

Presenters: Ken Page, Waqar Mughal
Date & Time: Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 1-2pm Eastern Time

    • Since the first leaders asked about the number of accidents occurring in their operations, health and safety professionals have been tallying and reporting on the number and types of incidents. Reporting has expanded to include rates of injuries, novel data collection tools, and a dizzying array of graphs and charts. The challenge is that much of the data is being misrepresented or underutilized without folks realizing it or knowing what to do about it. We believe OHS data is an underutilized asset. We have found that both published and internally prepared OHS data reports fall short of their intended purpose as they often only describe incidents in detail without answering relevant questions such as what factors increase the likelihood of injuries. In talking to many OHS professionals, data appears to be something that many seem uncertain about, and a little wary in addressing. There is a strong desire to better understand how to produce more impactful data. Through this session we will introduce the key components of data so that you can support your business with better measuring, reporting, and analysis of OHS data.

      Mr. Mughal is an experienced health and safety leader with 20 years in OH&S program design, delivery, and management; ergonomics/human factors, and data management, analysis, evaluation and reporting. He has expertise in integrating organizational data sets to identify priorities for management. He has an extensive program evaluation and performance measurement background.

      Ken Page is a CRSP and CHSC who has been practicing in the OHS world for over 25 years. He has a degree in Economics and a Diploma in Occupational Sciences. His background includes ergonomics, management systems, systems auditing, facility design and OHS/business integration.

      At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

      • Understand how typical data analysis approaches are not as impactful as they could be at preventing injuries and what can be done to improve this
      • Understand the need for and basic approaches to data quality and data cleansing
      • Understand basic concepts and issues regarding data, measurement, reporting and evaluation

Best-in-Class Contractor Management

Presenter: Darren Hamman
Date & Time: Tuesday, June 18, 2019, 1-2pm Eastern Time

    • One of the key issues facing health and safety professionals is the continued growth of outsourcing non-core business activities to third-party contractors. Contractors play a strategic role in the business ecosystem. They enable hiring organizations to streamline their operations, manage their risk exposure, optimize their cost structure, and sharpen their focus on core competencies. For some organizations, it is not uncommon for 80 percent or more of their work activities to be outsourced and completed by third-party contracting companies. It remains the prime duty of the site owner to ensure operations are undertaken in a safe and sustainable manner, and only qualified contractors are identified, selected and used throughout the life of a project. The challenge and opportunity lies in establishing a robust contractor management strategy to effectively mitigate risk exposures associated with use of contractors. This presentation will address the 10 key attributes of an effective, best-in-class contractor management system. In addition, we will share results of a recent survey of 204 decision makers from 161 hiring organizations from the United States and Canada. This information will provide insight into the attributes of leading hiring organizations and will enable attendees to benchmark themselves with their peers. This webinar is an excellent lead-in to the 2019 PDC session Contractor Management Strategy.

      Darren Hamman is a Senior Manager on ISN’s HSE-RAVS Team. He has 15 years of Health and Safety Management experience in the United States and Canada. Darren has a BA in Sociology, and a Certificate in Health, Safety, and Environmental Processes. He obtained his CRSP in 2007.

      At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

      • Understand the benefits of having an effective contractor management strategy and the risk of not having one.
      • Know what information to collect when prequalifying contractors and what information should be maintained on an ongoing basis.
      • Demonstrate knowledge of the key elements of an effective contractor management strategy.
      • Make data-driven decisions based on benchmarking data provided.
