Joop has an extensive background of over 25 years experience as a EHS manager in the chemicals, construction, food, flooring and personal hygiene industries. Since 2013 she has been the Safety Manager for Essity, (formerly SCA). She has been a pioneer in setting up safety systems and evolving the safety culture through system implementation. She has repeatedly found that while the need for safety systems was clear, tools were limited to paper forms and excel sheets, generating extensive administrative workload. Safety Managers were burdened with data management, keeping them from being where they needed to be: on the shop floor. She is now leading the deployment of the Gensuite EHS platform across Essity’s 82 sites worldwide, which will become fully live by 1st of January 2019. Joop will talk about the experience, the benefits and the challenges, and how to bring the organization together, overcoming cultural and operational differences arising from a historically fragmented approach.
