Designing Better Controls for Ergonomics
Companies experience highly varied results from their ergonomics programs. One key factor is how effectively engineering controls maximize the fit between the work being performed and the population of workers performing the job. Four tools can promote improved design of controls: design guidelines, design principles, control verification, and lessons learned.
This session will help explain the difference between design guidelines and design principles for ergonomics and the benefits of using each. You'll learn how to establish an effective lessons-learned process for ergonomics that can be used for improving existing work and designing new equipment, and the benefits of combining objective risk scores with subjective feedback during control verification.

Mastering Scope 3 Greenhouse Gas Disclosures: Value Chain
Companies that understand the relevance of ESG to today’s business world recognize that identification and tracking of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are essential to evaluating their performance and meeting stakeholder expectations. Even so, Scope 3 GHG emissions as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol are challenging to quantify and disclose, because they are indirect emissions from sources outside the direct control of the company. Companies need to prioritize understanding and tracking supply chain GHGs in Category 1 (purchased goods and services) and Category 2 (capital goods) of Scope 3.
In this 60-minute webinar, VelocityEHS subject matter expert, David Staples, will lay out the knowledge you and your company can use to improve your tracking of value chain GHG emissions so you can meet stakeholder expectations and develop better business resilience.

Enhancing PSM Compliance: Efficient Hot Work Management
Facilities handling significant quantities of hazardous and flammable chemicals must adhere to OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) Standard, imposing regulatory obligations for risk identification and control. Often overlooked is the vital role of managing hot work (e.g., welding, cutting) in PSM compliance. The PSM standard mandates employers to use permits for hot work, specifying authorized dates, locations, and assets, to be kept until work completion (1910.119(k)). Neglecting proper hot work procedures can lead to catastrophic incidents, as seen in investigations by the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board. Managing hot work is most effective when integrated with contractor oversight and inspections.
This presentation advocates for employing a digital Permit to Work process in a Control of Work system to enhance visibility and efficiently manage hot work and associated contractors at PSM facilities.
