Congratulations

to our 2019

Innovation Award Recipients!

ORC HSE 2019 Innovation Award Winner

We are privileged to announce Siemens Healthineers LD as
the recipient of the 2019 ORC HSE Innovation Award.

Make Open Words Count

Siemens Healthineers launched a multi faceted global safety communication campaign. The campaign was based on the premise that people´s behavior is strongly influenced by personal experiences. The focus of the campaign was to let employees experience safety with all their senses. The campaign included a video where, through the use of virtual reality, employees were able to experience an accident in their immediate area. The experience is used to facilitate dialogue on the incident and discussion of methods of prevention. The campaign was supported by social media and targeted messaging.

ORC HSE 2019 Innovation Award Runners-Up

We are also very excited to announce Consolidated Edison of New York and Lockheed Martin Corporation
as the ORC HSE 2019 Innovation Award Runners-up.

Safety First: Cubicle Inspection & Repair- Safety Device Initiative (CIRS)

Consolidated Edison of New York designed an electrical safety device that can be placed inside switchgear cubicles enabling mechanics to safely and efficiently perform inspections, preventative maintenance and repairs. The use of this device provides a safe work environment for mechanics by preventing inadvertent contact with energized components (i.e. load and feeder bus bar connections) thereby allowing visual inspections as well as maintenance and repairs to be performed without the need for a bus section outage.

Target Zero Leader Initiative

Lockheed Martin implemented a program that encourages every leader to consider safety and health from a new perspective; the company encourages leaders to take a positive tactic by engaging employees. Leaders are provided with tools, including an APP to support the program. Data analytics are used to make improvements to the initiative as well as the app itself. This initiative has been recognized by the US Air force and NASA.

ORC HSE is committed to supporting and promoting the creative health, safety, and environmental initiatives implemented by our member companies.

For this reason, we have initiated an ORC HSE Innovation Award recognizing fresh, effective approaches and programs designed to protect employee health, safety, and/or the environment.

The inaugural award recipients were selected based on a blind review that included an evaluation of the significance of the innovation, its potential for deployment across industries, and its overall sustainability and contribution to the field of occupational safety and health.
