Managing an Environment Health and Safety (EHS) program internationally is challenging to say the least. This may be due to different cultures of the countries the company is located and the difficulty in managing a crisis in one part of the world while the corporate headquarters—where decision makers sit—is in another part of the world. The BP faced by BP in the Gulf of Mexico and Union Carbide in Bhopal may help you jog your memory here.
Different countries have different thinking and way of operating. For instance, the thinking that exists in Europe and other parts of the world, is far less command and control to meet government requirements compared to what exists in North America—it is more focused on management systems such as ISO 14001.
This webinar by expert speaker Dr. Vince Marchesani will provide expert strategies and guidance on effectively managing an EHS program at the international level with examples. It will also address some of OSHA’s latest updates, which are very important, especially if your location comes under federal or state OSHA requirements. Additionally, this session will provide information as to what to expect operating in cultures outside of North America. You will get guidance on issues such as merger and acquisition, global warming and sustainable development to name only a few.
This webinar is designed to provide insights into issues and help you manage them as an EHS function in a global environment. It will also address the problems of managing different cultures and how best to integrate these cultures to add value to your organization. Without the understanding of culture a global effort can be counterproductive, unnecessarily costly and lead to failure. The OSHA update will allow you understand your new requirements, so that you may be prepared; and as a result, remain in compliance.
