Operational Risk Management
The Occupational Health & Safety Administration estimates that employers pay almost $1 billion per week for direct worker’s compensation costs as a result of injuries realized in the workplace¹ But, the costs of major incidents go beyond the hard dollars to the core of a company’s reputation, right to operate and the protection of its employees. Many CEO's have said that what keeps them awake at night is the possibility of a "serious incident" that could generate casualties, bring negative attention from the media, and could even bring down a company.
In order to avoid these major incidents, which can result in loss of life and assets, organizations need to proactively manage risks that exist within their operations. Operational risk management is the integrated approach to assess, predict and control risks in an operation and within production processes. With time-tested methodologies in employee, contractor and process safety, DuPont Sustainable Solutions experts can help your organization reduce lost-time incidents, develop employee skills, and minimize risks, thereby improving your operational efficiency, productivity and safety culture.
