Hosted by Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation

EHS Business Risk Agenda
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 the 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.
