Communicating the Value of a Risk Reduction Culture – Free Live Webinar


Join our next webinar! Live dates:

19 September at 9:00 AM EST (New York Time)

24 September at 11:00 EST (New York Time)

You’re not just an EHS Manager; you’re a Risk Manager. 

Your role involves having a keen eye for managing risks in a number of areas like workplace hazards, environmental releases, non-compliance penalties, and company reputation. Most EHS Managers will agree that this is not an easy job. As regulations increase at alarming rates and enforcement practices continue to intensify, you are most likely doing more with less to mitigate the EHS risks your company faces.

Risk reduction is vital to success and inaction is costly, but how do you demonstrate this to your corporate team? During the budget season, you must find a compelling way to champion for your program and communicate the value in building a strong company culture towards risk reduction.

In this webinar, held on 19 September at 9:00 AM EST and 24 September at 11:00 EST, Enhesa will explore ways to convince your team on investing more into risk reduction by:

  • Aligning EHS and CFO priorities
  • Defining the concept of “risk” within EHS and where they exist
  • Demonstrating the consequences of not addressing risks appropriately

We will then shed light on how to succeed in EHS risk reduction by introducing you to Joe Wolfsberger, a seasoned EHS Vice President formerly with Baxter, Ingersoll Rand, Eaton and Monsanto, who will share:

  • His experience in planning programs to navigate risk
  • How EHS and Sustainability can contribute across the entire value chain
  • His effective, strategic approach to creating a “Risk Elimination Culture”

We hope you’ll join us.
