Are you challenged to integrate EHS into your organization's overall risk management strategy?


Come see how other companies are managing and prioritizing EHS risk from the plant floor to the enterprise level and understand how this information is being presented and used by senior management

Adding Business Value through EHS: Strategies for Managing EHS Business Risks

NAEM Workshop

Co-hosted by Smurfit-Stone Container Corp.& NAEM St. Louis Chapter

August 8-9, 2007

St. Louis, MO


EHS interacts with the concept of risk on a number of levels: at an activity level on the plant floor, at a business level from an internal perspective and at the business level from an external perspective. Historically, EHS has been good at working at the activity and internal risk assessment and management levels. EHS professionals are now trying to better understand the external risk management element.


Attend this workshop and see how other businesses are managing these 3 risk areas. You will also learn how this information is being presented and integrated with "other" risks at the enterprise level. Take advantage of this cost effective opportunity to learn about the systems that manage these issues, how they are communicated and how EHS risks are assessed in relation to all of an organization's risks.


Workshop take-away's will help you:


Define and explore the concepts of Strategic Risk Management, Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) business risk and EHS business risk analysis

Benchmark examples of how leading companies are assessing, prioritizing and managing their EHS Business Risks

Gain practical tools and approaches for illuminating EHS risks to senior management in a way that demonstrates their potential impacts on the overall business

Lead the transition from a compliance-focused EHS management system to one that addresses current and future EHS business risks.
