EHS Risk Management: The New Imperative
Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2007
Syntex Management Systems, Inc., a provider of Enterprise Risk Management software solutions, is pleased to be hosting the Second in a Series of the Operational Risk Preferred Practice Seminars on May 1st at Turner Field in Atlanta, Georgia. The first seminar held earlier this month in Houston, Texas was received with an overwhelming response. These events bring together industry leaders who are focused on implementing incident management, proactive assessment programs and operational management system initiatives intended to reduce their overall exposure to risk.
The objective of these various Preferred Practice Seminars is to share best practices in the management of operational, regulatory compliance, environmental, safety, quality and security risk. Additionally, these seminars speak to the evolutionary process that progressive companies use to move their organizations towards achieving enterprise-wide risk management and operational excellence.
During this upcoming seminar, Unocal will share their "real life" experiences and insight concerning the implementation and continuous improvement of operational risk programs. Business leaders have improved their risk management performance through the integration of many different operational processes such as incident management, corporate assurance, and proactive assessments into a single common platform for strengthening risk mitigation competence and effectively enabling Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) within their organizations. In addition, Lexicon Systems, LLC will set the stage for Enterprise Risk Framework covering the characteristics of a fully featured software solution.
"We're pleased to provide a forum for companies to share how they've implemented a common set of repeatable processes, procedures, and software solutions that can be applied across all operational risks in a business. Implementing an assurance and compliance framework that can readily change with the company as it grows and evolves is vital to creating measurable benefits. The fact that all companies have risk management processes at various stages of maturity means that an effective risk management framework must support the simplest of data capture needs in one operational risk area, while supporting the most sophisticated stage-gate workflow processes in another. It is rapidly becoming mandatory from compliance and regulatory perspective to have a single common repository of risk management processes and findings to ensure you can prioritize the allocation of resources to those risk exposures weighted by their potential severity and potential frequency," said Trent Derr, President & CEO, Syntex Management Systems, Inc.
The agenda for May 1st will include the following sessions along with roundtable discussions:
"Implementing Centralized Corporate-Wide HSE Programs in a Decentralized "Autonomous Management" Culture";
"EHS Risk Management: The New Imperative";
"Establishing a Platform for Managing Enterprise Risks".
Seminar attendees will hear how these leaders are:
- Improved Operational Performance through integration of proactive and reactive processes
- Applied risk-based prioritization to electronic action item management
- Improved the efficiency and effectiveness of operational initiatives
- Executed repeatable processes for risk identification and measurement
- Enables a culture of open risk communication
- Manage organizational exposures in a single coordinated framework
These informative sessions are presented in a half-day format with a networking event immediately following.
