Managing Operational Risk: Achieving Operational Excellence

Most high-performing organizations agree that Operational Risk Management (ORM) needs to be an integral component of an organization’s managing system in order to achieve operational excellence. Many companies in the process and oil & gas industries struggle to embed process safety management (PSM) into the broader managing system. Many others struggle to sustain it.

Managing Operational Risk: Achieving Operational Excellence compares the various risk management models commonly referenced in the industry. This interactive one-day workshop discusses the business case for ORM, the challenges many organizations face in implementing it within the broader operational excellence management system, and how to sustain the change through a culture of operational discipline. Attendees will have the opportunity to share and learn practical best practices from their peers.

Who Should Attend?

This event is aimed at senior executives and operational and functional leaders who have a leading role in driving their organizations to operational excellence and achieving sustainable growth.

Why DuPont?

Based on over 200 years of owner-operator experience in high hazard operations, DuPont has identified a number of key success factors for integrating process safety management into the broader operational excellence management system and sustaining a strong safety culture.

In addition, the work that DuPont Sustainable Solutions has done over the past 40 years with clients across a range of industries – from oil and gas to mining and metals processing – has demonstrated the depth and adaptability of our solutions.

Based on this vast operational experience, we have refined our models and methodologies in ways that can be replicated, put into practice, tested and fine-tuned for almost any situation or industry. Our approach to managing operational risk and preventing process-related injuries and incidents addresses both the cultural and technical aspects of your organization.
