Presenters: Wendy Tobin, Corteva Agrisciences Glogal EHS&S Centre of Expertise Chris Banbury, NOVA Chemicals
Date & Time: June 3rd, 2020, 12:00 PM EST

    • Session Description:

      As individuals, organizations and societies navigate the tremendous challenges of the current pandemic, we must consider the possibilities that there may have been leading indicators that predicted this global crisis. Leading indicators are predictive measures that are monitored in the effective performance of a management system that can identify, assess and control risk in the workplace. Given the evolving nature of health and safety that spans from chemical safety, to the integration of robotics to mental health in the workplace, the need for an understanding of leading indicators is critical.

      This webinar will address the importance of tracking leading, as well as lagging health and safety indicators to improve the overall performance of your organization.

      At the end of the session, participants will:

      • Understand the importance of proactive, predictive leading indicators
      • Measure the effectiveness of leading indicators from the example of other organizations
      • Learn about ongoing research to define and prioritize leading indicators in incident prevention
