Safety @ Six Sigma

Safety @ Six Sigma

As safety professionals we are tasked with the protection of people, property and the environment. How do we do that? Saying “Be Careful” is not enough. Quoting CFR is a good reference but may not move others to action. Safety at Six Sigma is a simple concept that can be proven effective for anyone willing to employ it. The presentation is an introduction for both management and front-line employees to the “Moments Model”; which explains why we sometimes behave in ways that are inconsistent with our desires and ultimately result in mistakes, incidents and injuries. Demonstration of coaching skills will allow each individual participant to gauge their ability to achieve a level of performance to eliminate incidents, injuries, lost work days, productivity interruptions, undesirable events and liability exposure. The session will provide participants a tool to aid in sending every worker home whole every day – injury and incident free.

Qualifications in the subject matter is based on my current roles and responsibility and previous success in business partnering to integrate environmental, health and safety objectives in operational success.  I have successfully partnered with the C-Suite to assist with the primary objective of ensuring the organization builds the desired safety culture while also achieving the company’s operational goals.

My background includes over 20 years of success managing people and processes.  Through the efforts of department safety managers and safety supervisors, I have been able to grow the safety culture.  Various industries have supplemented my management skills in relationship building, organization, observation, preparation, presentation, and providing feedback.  Anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of potential hazards in the workplace and environment have been the building blocks for my success while working to promote health and safety initiatives.  I believe my skill set – combined with the Moments Model will show participants how they will be able to oversee, devise and support the safety program for their organization.
