    What Digital Transformation Means For EHS

    In the last 2 years, the mindset of EHS leaders have changed from “why should we align with digital strategies” to “how should we implement digital strategies”. Reflecting this overall shift in business thinking which has spread from the technology and consumer sectors into the industrial world, this keynote speech will illuminate the strategic implications of digital transformation for the EHS function.

    EHS Leaders Of The Future: Innovators, Collaborators & Digitizers

    Chair:

    The mission statement for EHS is moving from compliance to participating in business value creation. This has big implications for the responsibilities, activities and skill sets of future EHS leaders. If the future of EHS leadership is dependent on innovation, collaboration and digitization what does the EHS community need to change to ensure the profession continues to succeed in the next 5 years?

    Risk Creation: EHS’s Role In Business Growth

    Chair:

    Historically health and safety practitioners have been responsible for ensuring business operations comply with regulations and have implemented management systems to control risks. Forward-looking health and safety leaders now get involved in the process of “risk creation” which is triggered by business growth into new markets and new activities. Can safety leaders effectively control risks which they have created with business partners? Or does this imperil the three lines of defence model of risk management?

    Succeeding With Wearables Projects

    Speaker:

    Whilst EHS professionals see significant potential for wearable technologies to improve health and safety outcomes, the market is flooded with scores of new tech devices and few examples exist of large-scale successful roll outs. During this 15 minute analyst teach-in you’ll get a clear understanding of the different categories of industrial wearables on the market, insights into different vendors’ offerings and advice on how to initiate a successful pilot project.

    Best Practices For EHS Analytics

    Chair:

    Broader deployment of data collection via mobile apps, EHS software, wearables and digital sensors enables firms to dramatically enhance EHS data quality, volume and timeliness. As a result, there is interest in the development of new leading indicators and predictive analytics models to get more value from EHS data. This panel shares best practices on EHS analytics from improvements in risk management frameworks to the use of breakthrough technology like graph databases.

    Enhancing EHS’s Involvement With Operational Risk Management

    Chair:

    The concept of intelligent risk management is moving up the agenda of EHS leaders who are elevating the added value of their function and moving away from a compliance mindset. The panellists which provide recommendations on how to successfully engage with the rest of the organization to enhance operational risk management without compromising the integrity of the EHS function. Is the distinction between risk oversight and risk ownership captured in the three lines of defence model the best approach to take?

    From Pilot Projects To Value Delivery: Mastering Emerging Tech Adoption

    Chair:

    Most large firms headquartered in Europe have been publishing sustainability reports for 10 to 15 years. Regulated industrial facilities have been obliged to produce estimates of GHG emissions to meet the requirements of the EU Emissions Trading System regulation. With growing momentum behind the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Climate Accord and increasing investor scrutiny of a potential peak in fossil fuel consumption do firms need to review and overhaul their sustainability and GHG emissions reporting?

    Maximizing The Benefit Of Mobile Apps For EHS

    Chair:

    Mobile applications for incident reporting, safety observations and audits have been widely adopted and the EHS community increasingly buys into the value. However, many firms have struggled to drive widespread adoption and others have invested in standalone mobile apps that don’t connect with other safety data. This panel will share insights on how to ensure your mobile EHS apps project is a success for you as well as frontline workers.

    Ergonomics, Wellbeing & Fatigue Monitoring – What Role For Technology?

    Chair:

    The health remit of EHS practitioners has expanded from occupational health into a broader well-being or total worker health agenda which includes issues such as mental health, work stress and non-work related injuries, illness and fatigue. This panel will discuss the potential role for technology to support this broader well-being agenda across data gathering, medical services, employee engagement and training.
