Bruce Lyon, Hays Vice President and Director of Risk Management, recently received first place honors by The American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) Editorial Board and the Council on Professional Development for his article, Communicating and Managing Risk: The Key Result of Risk Assessment.
The article, co-authored by Dr. Georgi Popov, speaks to the critical impact that communication has on effectively managing risk. Without communication, risk assessments lack the power for positive change within an organization. To implement effective change, key-decision makers must be informed and safety professionals empowered to share potential for risk.
By establishing risk assessment methods that identify, assess and communicate potential operating risks, a trickledown effect is established that demonstrates downstream business consequences and the link between operational risk, occupational safety and health (OSH) risk, and business risk – an essential aspect for future planning.
The article, which was published in the November 2017 issue of the Professional Safety Journal, can be viewed in full, here: Communicating & Managing Risk – The Key Result of Risk Assessment.
This prestigious accomplishment demonstrates the depth of professionalism and risk control expertise that organizations can expect to receive from Hays Companies. To learn more about how Hays can help you manage your risk, please contact your local Hays Representative.
