The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Kingdom of Bahrain

The American Society of Safety Engineers-Middle East Chapter (ASSE-MEC) is pleased to announce its 2012 symposium that includes the following three presentations:

Title: Changing Safety’s Paradigms 
Presenter: Mr. Ron McKinnon

Abstract
Based on Ron C. McKinnon’s book of the same title, this hard hitting, energetic and exciting presentation includes numerous examples, stories and case studies from Ron’s many years of international experience. Often humorous, sometimes serious, this presentation is different and will enthuse you to start looking beyond the safety paradigm box.

A paradigm is something that we have always believed and accepted. It is a mindset, and can easily reach the status of myth. We tend to accept the mindset of the current paradigm, and therefore, we are in danger of remaining locked into preconceived concepts. Safety has a number of paradigms that have become myths. Many basic safety philosophies and practices are based on outdated paradigms. These are protected like sacred cows and only a few safety professionals question them … until now.

Title: Personnel Behavior Observation (PBO) Remove Barriers to Safety 
Presenter: Mr. Mohammed Al-Hajri

Abstract
By implementing traditional programs and robust management systems, organizations have reduced injuries and minimized risks to a large degree. However, many organizations now find that they have progressed to admirably low incident rates and their safety performance has leveled off. Their ability to achieve a further HSE improvement has become difficult.

To improve further and reach HSE excellence, we need to think beyond traditional HSE tools. This paper discusses Kemya’s “do-it-yourself” approach and experience in assessing, developing, planning, organizing and implementing the behavioral observation and feedback tool known as “PERSONNEL BEHAVIOR OBSERVATION (PBO),” that began in 2000. PBO is a comprehensive HSE tool based on behavioral science carried out by employees, focusing on workplace conditions and behavioral observations. This presentation discusses the PBO processes, schedules, guidelines, intervention methods and analysis to determine how Kemya identifies, analyzes and manages risks effectively.

PBO is an excellent proactive HSE tool which can help control lagging indicators. A successful PBO process should be achievement oriented with a focus on behaviors, supported by management and driven by employees through interdependent teamwork. A positive (safe) and corrective (at-risk) observation system will lead to better communication, trust and interpersonal relationships at work, thereby laying the foundation for successful teamwork and continuous improvement.

Title: Murphy’s Law and Loss Prevention 
Presenter: Dr. Bill Pomfret

Abstract
Murphy is well known for the many bad luck sayings in its “law.” This presentation looks into the myths and realities of safety and loss prevention, with a series of internationally recognized disasters falling under some of Murphy’s famous law.

This presentation is one of over 100 executive briefings that the presenter uses in his quarterly executive briefings, which he presents to his major client boards of directors. These executive briefings have helped transform many clients’ negative cultures into positive ones.
