Don’t miss our next Expert Connect session on July 14: Leveraging Safety Performance through Control of Work.
For most safety and health professionals, regardless of career maturity, their role most likely is involved with building management systems and implementing programs based on the risks residing in the work system.
For the July session of Expert Connect, we will explore an essential, but often overlooked, part of the safety management system called Control Of Work (COW). COW is used to request, review, authorize, document and control risks before tasks are performed by the worker. In addition, we will look at more granular elements like permit to work, hazards identification, isolation management and risk assessment.
For more information and to register, please check out our blog post, Expert Advice about Using Control of Work to Leverage Your Safety Performance."
Here's a sample of our Q&A with our expert, Eric Fishman:
Intelex: What are the takeaways you hope to leave with attendees?
Eric Fishman: I hope that people come away with a greater understanding of the process and workflows that make up COW and how they each contribute to reducing risk and improve worker safety. I also hope the attendees gain a baseline knowledge for the tools and technology that are available to support digital transformations in this area.
