Analyzing Case Studies Learning to Recognize Management System Elements VPP Case Study 1: Wheelabrator Technologies, Inc. On Thursday, May 15, 2008, a Contractor from International Valve and Instrument Corp suffered a heart attack within the waste-to-energy facility. While working on a boiler on the 9th Floor, the Contractor started to feel ill and called for help on the plant telephone. His call was heard throughout the plant and soon it became clear he was experiencing a heart attack. Immediately, Wheelabrator employees reacted to the emergency. By using an automated external defibrillator (AED) employees were able to stabilize him and monitor and administer treatment as needed, while waiting for the paramedics. Once help arrived, several employees assisted the paramedics in moving the gentleman from the 9th Floor to the

5th Floor where the elevator is located; CPR and shock treatment were administered several times throughout the process. The Contractor was transported by paramedics to a local hospital for further treatment. I am extremely proud of the way all of our employees reacted. Everybody pitched in, did what weve all practiced and trained for, Plant Manager Peter Kendrigan said. VPP Case Study 2: Milliken & Companys Alma Plant, Nicholls, GA During 2003, new spinning frames were modified to allow access for maintenance technicians to perform routine and preventive maintenance to the overhead doffer mechanism. Since the original equipment design by the manufacturer provided no method of accessing process points for preventive maintenance on opening equipment at elevations of over ten feet, multiple platforms and ladders were installed in the opening process for the long and short staple nylon lines. Once these problems were identified, Alma employees on the Process Hazards Safety Committee completed the hazard and risk assessments

and ultimately approved the upgraded equipment for production. This process involved identification of pinch points, hot/cold points, sharp edges, noise, dust and chemical hazards, and ergonomic handling opportunities. The Technicians now use a catwalk with guardrails to perform maintenance duties on equipment that is higher than eight feet off the floor. These platforms and ladders minimize the risk of falls from a lifethreatening height. All new equipment has pre-startup checklists. VPP Case Study 3: DynMcDermott Petroleum Operations (DM) Since 2001, DMs injury and illness rate have consistently been below the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) national average for the industry. The Companys Total Case Incident Rate between 2004 and 2006 was 1.13 (lower than their previous good performance of 1.49) which was 83 percent lower than the 2005 BLS national average. DM believes that not only is having an effective safety management system the right thing to do in terms of protecting its employees, but it is also the companys best financial policy. Since 1999, when the company

began its process towards achieving VPP approval and recognition, its workers compensation costs have decreased 96 percent. These savings results in overall profitability, and these profits are shared with employees who remain vigilant in pursuing safety in the form of performance bonuses. Strategies for Integrating ANSI Z10 The Real Big Picture Driving Forces Overcoming Barriers Meet Expectations? Initial Review/Priorities

Report How Youre Doing Check How Youre Doing Work Plan for Objectives Develop OHS Framework Implement Framework Driving Forces: Macro Scale Number 1: A safe and healthy work environment Program efficiency and consistency Decreased liability Lower costs

Greater employee empowerment Assurance to investors, insurance companies Continued focus on continual improvement Driving Forces: Micro Scale Positive: Recognition Lunches/Other Freebies External Recognition Negative: Fear of Failing Audit Supervisors Get Bad Report Internally Bad Performance Review OVERCOMING COMMON BARRIERS Competing high-priority assignments

Need more time Inadequate resources assigned Uncertainty about organizational change Lack of understanding Lack of management/key staff support MANAGING ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE RememberPeople are involved! Develop buy-in Communication, training, status reports Try to understand expectations at all functional levels Before Diving In, Ask What are our OHS priorities and concerns? What application does OHSMS have to

these? What is our best-guess as to resource needs? What can we accomplish with internal resources? Where can we find additional resources? Assembling the OHSMS Team Not a one-person show Criteria for Team selection: Key facility operation areas People who will actively participate and support OHSMS Good attention to detail; ideally self motivators Management Sponsors Stakeholder Representatives (Union, ISO

Auditors, etc.) Management/Employee Participation Top Management Core Team Implementation Teams Organize OHS Development Teams based on functional level: Top ManagementPolicy, Resource Assessment,

Delegate Authority, Process for Management Reviews OHS Core TeamInitial Reviews, Implementation Plan, Framework Procedures Implementation Teams Input to Initial Reviews, Development of Job Instructions for specific areas Initial Review OHSMS Existing Business

Processes Youre Probably Doing Most of the OHSMS Now! OHSMS elements build on existing practices OHSMS takes what is working and formalizes it into a system What are we doing now? What are you doing now as per ANSI Z10 to address OHS?

Gaps? For the risks and objectives from Planning: What processes are in place for OSHA compliance? What processes might be used under ISO 9001 and/or 14001 (i.e., piggy-backed)? What voluntary initiatives exist? How do these processes meet ANSI Z10? How do they fall short? Action Plan What are we doing now? What are you doing now as per ANSI Z10 Some Compliance Elements to consider: to address OHS? Gaps?

Process Hazard Analysis Exposure Assessments Communications procedures (e.g., HazCom) Emergency Preparedness Training, Awareness and Competence Document and Records Management Periodic Reviews (e.g., LOTO) Safety Committee Meetings What are we doing now? What are you doing now as per ANSI Z10 to address OHS? Gaps? Some ISO 9001/14001 Elements to consider:

Policy Objectives-setting Processes Communications procedures Emergency Preparedness Training, Awareness and Competence Document and Records Management Auditing Management Review Initial Review: Risk Evaluation RISK UNDERSTANDING How likely is it? What can

go wrong? What are impacts? Using historical knowledge, analytical methods and best judgment Severity of Injury or Illness Consequence Likelihood of Occurrenc e or Exposure Catastroph ic

Resourc es Implementation Plan Metri c Target Finish Date Actual Finish Date Typical Implementation Process

A new OHSMS Procedure is developed The new procedure is rolled out Tweaks to improve procedure, if needed Affected personnel get training in procedure Affected personnel get training reinforcement

Records, other evidence of new procedure start to be generated Auditor finds several non-conformances, needs for improvement After some time (e.g., six months) an auditor reviews evidence Implement Plans: Likely Needs

Implement action plans to fill gaps, objective: ANSI Z10 conformance Personnel training Good communications Document and record controls Monitoring and measuring progress Written operation/maintenance procedures Management of change Continued management review and support Did you notice? The process of developing and

implementing Plans to put together a OHSMS Framework requires the same types of teamwork/elements as implementing the Framework itself (communications, procedures, review, documents, training, etc.) The process of developing an OHSMS can be thought of as the first pass through the PlanDoCheckAct cycle If you can put it all together (develop framework), you should be able to keep it all together (establish and maintain) Implement action Implementation: plans to fill gaps, objective: ANSI Z10 Remember

this Keep it simple; go at the right pace conformance Stay within available resources Understand competence comes over time Ignorant bliss Conscious incompetence Unconscious competence Expect non-conformances As implementation improves, so will results Report and Improve! Management Review at least annually Recommendations for

Improvement Specific inputs listed in Section 7.1 Management shall determine for OHSMS: Future direction Need for changes Thanks for your attention!
