ORC HSE’s Western Occupational Safety and Health (WOSH) Network brings together senior-level managers responsible for health, safety, and environment (HSE) programs at companies representing a wide range of industries operating in the western U.S. Members benefit from meeting with peers who face similar challenges: maintaining appropriate HSE programs; keeping abreast of current legislative and regulatory actions; developing performance measures; participating on cross-functional teams to improve employee wellness; advancing Corporate Social Responsibility/Sustainability efforts; and assessing enterprise-wide risks. WOSH offers members the opportunity to discuss critical HSE issues with their peers, sharing information, practical expertise, and best practices. Discussions are frank and confidential, allowing members to speak openly about their challenges and successes. The group meets quarterly to discuss current and emerging topics, with a focus on high-level discussion, networking, informal benchmarking, and exchanging critical information about HSE management practice. Presentations are offered by key regulatory agency representatives and other noted HSE experts on regulatory developments that may affect members’ operations, particularly in the western U.S. Three meetings are held in prime western state locations; the fourth is a joint meeting with the OSH Group held in Washington, D.C.
