Virtual Summer of Safety
In keeping with our commitment to member health and safety, AWO will not hold an in-person Summer Safety Committees’ meeting this August.
Instead, AWO has launched Virtual Summer of Safety which will feature engaging conversations with key maritime industry government partners and cutting-edge educational webinars on a range of timely safety topics.
Wednesday, July 22
Join Marathon Petroleum Corporation’s Marine Operations Supervisor Mark Sawyer and Jo Ann Salyers of Salyers Solutions, LLC, as AWO’s Safety Leadership Advisory Panel presents one lessons learned and two best practices presentations in this “grab bag” webinar. Lessons learned are key to gaining knowledge of performing a task or project, and AWO has long promoted documenting and sharing them so that knowledge derived from individual companies’ experiences can support desirable outcomes and prevent mistakes across our industry. Best practices are methods or techniques that have been proven to show superior results and outcomes to those achieved by other means and are used as a benchmark. Topics covered will include implementing the Permit to Proceed process, accelerating compliance examinations, assessing risk and reporting near misses.
Our industrial world is full of innovative systems, programs, rules, regulations, and plans designed to make workplaces safer. No matter how much investment goes into these efforts, the one fundamental that underlies all consistently reliable safe work success is the competence of people to recognize, evaluate, and manage hazards. It seems simple, yet a gap in this competence exists within most organizations. In this presentation, Michael Fleming will explore the role of leadership and identify proven building blocks to close the hazard recognition competence gap at all levels of an organization so workers can dependably accomplish smooth and safe work.
