Topic: “Taking a Management Systems Approach to Individual Health and Safety Programs”
Not all organizations maintain an accredited HSE management system. However, all organizations have HSE risks to assess, manage and monitor. This presentation describes how to structure programs using a management systems approach, without necessarily implementing a full HSE management system. Ergonomics programs are used as an example, showing how the various elements of a management system can be applied to manage a specific issue or risk. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to apply management systems thinking to their existing health and safety programs.

Registration the annual BAESG Holiday Party is coming to a close.
Come join your friends and colleagues in this annual celebratory event. We will enjoy a formal sit down dinner at David's Restaurant for an evening of networking, food, and drinks. The restaurant will be decorated in Holiday Style.
This event will be in the restaurant, not the banquet facility, and will start off with hors d'oeuvres, and a no-host bar that offers a variety of refreshing beverages. Dinner will be served at 6:30 and a delightful palate of desserts will cap off the meeting.
The board of directors plans to award the annual $1500 scholarship to a worthy local EHS college student. Thanks to the PDC sponsors for funding this effort.
The evening will be highlighted by the festive raffle giveaway.
And, If we are lucky, we might just get a visit from good old Santa.
