An effective management accountability system for safety provides the critical foundation necessary for any company’s safety program to be successful. Conversely, any safety or loss control program that lacks the backing of a performance measurement system is likely to miss the target in achieving the desired results of such a program.
During “Management Accountability for Safety” on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at SMACNA’s annual convention in Las Vegas, Greg Stefan, safety services manager, of The St. Paul Companies, will review key elements of an effective accountability system including impact on the bottom line of a company, examples of performance measurement criteria, practical examples of implementation strategies and effective communication of these elements to all levels of management. There will be discussion of performance evaluation tools and management involvement that will help contractors adopt the principles of a true accountability system suited for their organization.
Greg Stefan’s experience over the past 12 years has been in construction risk control with St. Paul. He has worked extensively with medium, large and multi-location contractors involved in all types of construction. His experience in safety includes working with heavy and highway, special trades and commercial building contractors.
