Pilko Presents: OPERA Seminar, February 2018

Rick Monty, Senior Advisor at Pilko, recently spoke at OPERA’s February Seminar on “Risk Control by Aligning Organisations from Board Room to Plant Room.” Rick’s presentation was highly praised by attendees (click image to download).

The Oil, Petrochemical and Energy Risks Association (OPERA) provides a forum for the interchange of technical information on all aspects of the insurance of oil, gas, petrochemical and power generation risks. The membership is drawn from the major Lloyd’s brokers, underwriters, loss adjusters, solicitors, surveyors, engineers and similar professions. It is particularly concerned with associated safety and loss prevention issues.

Pilko & Associates are proud to participate with OPERA around the world in helping our mutual clients increase their control of operational and EHS risk.

Your best asset in operational excellence and risk control.

Everyone is concerned with organizational capability.

In our careers, we’ve learned that the better the capability, the better the operation and the lower the risk. We’ve discovered that the best asset in operational excellence is how well our people are trained and performed.

This is why we go to conferences and read papers as a part of professional and organizational development. We’re all working to achieve a successful reliability culture and lowered probability of incident.

Sometimes overlooked in the rush of project completion or ongoing operational performance, are issues beyond traditional risk management. Issues that we take for granted because they almost seem “too obvious.” But isn’t it the case that often the most obvious are the ones most often overlooked?

Pilko & Associates offers a Grey Paper that presents the three key and critical factors that affect operational reliability and contribute to increased operational risk control. In this paper you’ll:

  • Rediscover how important staffing is to capability and performance
  • See how to better “connect dots” for insight and decision strength
  • Discover how best to improve and apply risk matrices
  • Learn how to immediately improve organizational capability
