ORC HSE Member Testimonials


“I’ll keep this simple and to the point. I cannot imagine how an EHS professional can excel in their job without belonging to ORCHSE. For less than the cost of one headcount, a company keeps their staff effectively and efficiently current with regulations around the globe, knowledgeable about best practices and innovations within and outside their industry group while having access to ORCHSE’s membership and their thought leadership on latest research and emerging issues. I know without a doubt, that I owe ANY success I’ve had in this field, in a very large part, to what I’ve learned through ORCHSE. They make me look like a genius to my leadership (and I’m far from it)! If a candidate for an executive EHS position with my company were not intimately familiar with ORCHSE and their network, I’d question whether they had the knowledge, connections and frankly, good judgement, to work here.”

– David Eherts, PhD, CIH, Vice President Global EHS, Allergan

“In today’s professional world, there are so many vocational memberships and associations that are being offered to our EHS community. Clearly, as we balance our careers each day, it becomes a matter of how much time we can spend on external development and benchmarking, in addition to choosing the most effective and rewarding opportunities. For Siemens Healthineers Laboratory Diagnostics and for our EHS staff, ORC HSE has been the clear choice for value, continuous learning and advanced benchmarking. The various networks are invaluable, and the professional interaction and personal friendships have been beyond rewarding. I have learned so much from my fellow EBIF colleagues and the trusting and open atmosphere of our meetings is like no other.”

– Paul D. Moss, CIH ROH, Vice President Global EHS, Travel and Security, Siemens Healthineers LD

“At Duke Energy we value our membership with ORCHSE and our relationships with member companies. The group provides opportunities for benchmarking important EHS issues with best in class, industry leading companies. Their quarterly meetings open to all members with like-minded EHS professionals, corporate physicians and corporate legal staff provide ongoing dialog on issues critical to our company. ORCHSE has been thought leaders in EHS for quite some time. We use their expertise to inform us of health & safety trends and potential future regulatory impacts. They provide access to regulators and assist in ensuring our messages are understood as intended. We continue to use ORCHSE frequently for expert advice on issues of critical importance to us. Their insights, regulatory interpretations and how world-class company EHS organizations deal with similar issues have been particularly valuable to me. At times we use ORCHSE consulting services to help with special focus assessments where we either do not have the internal expertise or want an independent assessment for a comprehensive review of key risks. All in all I consider ORCHSE a valuable partner as we work to continuously improve the health and safety of workers at Duke Energy.”

– Carol Barajas, Vice President EHS Field Services, Duke Energy

“ORC HSE fits my needs. Your speakers routinely humble and energize me with their achievements and commitment to innovation. Participating colleagues are experts in their own right. They have a diversity of experience that provides much needed perspective on issues of importance to my colleagues and me. Most importantly, I am routinely challenged on my programs and opinions. It’s a wonderful formula.”

– Robert S. Goldsmith, M.D., Novartis

“The ORC HSE EU Forum provides a centre of excellence whereby SHE (HS&E) leaders are kept abreast of up and coming legislative changes as well as areas of particular interest that the regulators will be focussing their attention. What is of particular interest is that often the guest speakers are regulators from the agencies implementing that change. Another highlight of the forum is the diversity of the member businesses and the openness of the discussions within the group. The forum is very cognizant that there are elements of confidentiality around specific discussion points and that confidentiality is respected by all.”

– George Gibson,
Head of SHE, Weapon Systems UK, BAE Systems
