Mentoring Corner: Discussion Topics – Balanced scorecard, emphasis on leading metrics, what will drive continuous improvement?

By Tim Paz

What does a world class EHS program look like?  How do you go about integrating EHS management into business performance?  Many large EHS organizations use scorecards emphasizing on leading indicators to drive continuous improvement.  Think of a way that the mentee can propose a new project that will help their EHS organization implement an Occupational Health and Safety Management System, or some other new initiative, such as Annual Respiratory Protection Program Evaluations, based on measuring some kind of outcome.

  1. Clearly define your program, project.
  2. Quantitatively measure conformance.
  3. Enable consistent broad-based action.
  4. Feedback loop for results.
