A lthough senior HSE leaders play a critical role in supporting regulatory compliance, identifying and managing key risks, promoting a healthy culture, and understanding the HSE implications of different work processes, few venues exist for them to join their peers for confidential and candid discussions of HSE challenges and opportunities. The Executive Business Issues Forum (EBIF), ORC HSE’s one-of-a-kind network for senior corporate executives with lead responsibility for HSE, was created to fill this need. The EBIF offers senior executives the unique opportunity to learn from and influence their peers in other industries as well as to discuss critical business issues with key government officials and outside experts. Two-day meetings are held twice-yearly; these feature roundtable discussions on member topics of interest and encourage joint problem solving and sharing of best practices on HSE issues. Often, projects requested by members, such as surveys, benchmarking, and special-topic meetings, are undertaken between meetings. The EBIF is also playing an increasingly important role in addressing a variety of global safety and health initiatives on behalf of U.S. businesses.
Nationally known and certified in-house HSE experts are available to answer questions and provide immediate assistance via unlimited telephone and e-mail access. Extended support on an as-needed (fee) basis also is available through the ORCHSE Consulting Service, an affiliate of ORCHSE Strategies dedicated to providing the highest quality consulting at a member discounted price.
You’ll have access to a members-only website that provides key material, critical updates, and links to new information source. Twice monthly briefings and detailed quarterly updates will keep you up to the minute on HSE regulatory and business-related issues. You’ll also receive timely email alerts on breaking developments in safety and health.
An online bulletin board just for members enables instant access to and communication with other companies on issues of interest, facilitating confidential discussion with peer business leaders and access to thought leaders from business and government.
An annual ORC HSE benchmarking survey allows members to compare progress in key performance indicators with other leading corporations and provides valuable insights into successful health and safety business strategies from more than 110 of the world’s leading companies. In addition, issue-specific member surveys and periodic benchmarking studies allow “real-time” benchmarking on critical safety and health topics.
If you’d like to take a more active leadership role in shaping national HSE policy and practice, there’s no better way to start than by joining ORC HSE’s Executive Business Issues Forum.
