Engage With Experts, Gain Deep Insights and Drive Operational Excellence

For safety leaders, managing and adapting to change is more critical than ever. Organizations that are able to adapt quickly are able to engage the workforce and identify and act on hazards before they impact safety. How do they do that? Through the ongoing analysis of operational risk; Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability (EHS&S); and hazardous materials data in real time. 

On Oct. 27 & 29, Sphera hosted the Safe Operations Summit. Over 300 delegates joined to learn how to leverage digital and automation tools to better track and report safety data, meet compliance requirements, reduce front-line risks and build a worldclass safety culture.

BASF Case Study: Consistently Identify, Assess and Control the Impact of Operational Risk

It’s difficult to standardize and assess all the sources of risk to support resource-intensive facilities. By focusing solely on compliance, organizations miss valuable opportunities to improve safety performance. A combination of small failures can be buried deep into business silos and arise unexpectedly. This can lead to safety failures, spending inefficiencies, and compliance deficiencies. Shareholders, employees, and regulators demand stronger controls. Learn how BASF has established a unified, holistic way of proactively identifying and assessing risk, maintaining controls, and sharing risk-related information.

Speaker: Gosia Myslinska, Ph.D.,  Process Safety Expert at BASF
