Leveraging Technology in SH&E
Pierre J. Van Neste
Global Director, Synergy Business Development
Honeywell Life Safety

Imagine safety professionals arriving at site, equipped with a hand held device that tells them which asset, process, system, training compliance needs to be audited, inspected, or certied. The future is NOW for Safety. Cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS) technology is fundamentally changing the way we work and promoting a re-organization of the business to take advantage of this new wave of innovation. Mr. Van Neste will discuss how organizations can leverage new technologies into their SH&E initiatives.

Software Tools for Establishing and Maintaining SHE Compliance
Milan L. Dayalal
Vice-President of Sales
Dakota Software Corporation

OSHA enforcement is at its highest levels in history. Organizations
need to ensure employees are prepared when an OSHA inspector
pays them a visit, as well as maintain a safe and compliant work
environment on an ongoing basis. This session will outline how
software tools can help to reduce organizational risk by monitoring
changes to the regulations, automating tasks and corrective actions, documenting critical compliance information, and establishing accountability and visibility throughout the organization.

Best in Class in Contractor Management
Richard Cerenzio
Director, HSE Review and Verication Services

Establishing and sustaining a robust contractor management
process is a clear demonstration of the Owner Client’s commitment
to protecting both the human and environmental dignity involved in its operations. For companies that hire contractors as either an Owner Client or as a prime/general contractor, the ten contractor management attributes along with the statistical performance analysis methods presented will assist such organizations by providing them with ideas for benchmarking and improving their contractor management processes.

The Formula: Technology x (Engagement +Recognition + Communications) / Measurement = Safety Improvement
Brian Galonek
President & National Sales Manager
All Star Incentive Marketing

Unfortunately technology, when deployed poorly, can produce negative results by reducing the human interactions that are essential for companies to evolve. Ironically, technology, when used properly, has proven itself to be an invaluable tool for innovative safety managers who deploy it to create a more highly engaged work force that is motivated to work safer. The presentation will explain and provide real world examples of how technology is used in conjunction with these Safety Pillars and why it results in outstanding safe work improvement.
