Energy Insights: Avoiding low probability, high impact events

The impact of a major ES&H event can be devastating to a company. Creating a culture where EH&S is both taken seriously and well-supported is paramount to preventing many of these events. A program mandated and supported by top management, and funneled throughout an organization will help prevent events, and minimize those which cannot be prevented (such as a natural disaster). Careful assessment of the current state of EH&S in an organization, coupled with proper design of processes and controls to improve the EH&S system and complete implementation of the improvements result in fewer and less costly incidents.
