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.

NEW GREY PAPER: LEADERSHIP PART FOUR

LEADERSHIP PART FOUR:

GROWING COMPETENCY TO GAIN CONTROL OF RISK WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION

It is no longer possible to have a culture of “good faith” and implied trust when it comes to Operational and EHS Risk. The risks and costs of such a position are just too high. Also, when it comes to Operational and EHS Risk control, don’t get accidentally caught between “good intentions” and incidents. Demand and ensure reliable, predictable risk control competency.
Competency is king when it comes to increasing and getting control of Operational and EHS Risk. History proves this.
In today’s world of high capital, high volatility and high risk environments, how do energy and chemical leaders create and validate competency? How do leaders create a culture of competency that establishes greater risk control?
The most recent Pilko & Associates Grey Paper, entitled “Leadership: Growing competency to gain control of risk within the organization” answers these key questions. In this Grey Paper, you’ll discover the:

  • Purpose and importance of subject matter experts
  • Power of “what if” in scenario planning
  • Proper use and frequency of PHAs
  • Establishment of correct, competency-based expectations
  • Value and engagement of the “front line”

Each section brings insights that you can immediately apply within your organization.Combined, they form a picture of how you can steadily, predictably and economically grow your control of Operational and EHS Risk.

The very best leaders within energy and chemical companies know that increased risk control directly impacts sustainability, profitability and reputation. Why not learn how you can protect all three of these by growing your risk control competency across the plant, organization or company.

Pilko & Associates “Did You Know”

JULY 2017: THE IMPORTANCE OF A RISK CONTROL CULTURE

Today the subject of “risk culture” and the role that a lack of risk culture played in the financial meltdown in 2007/8 is a heavily discussed topic. Having a culture that understands risk and makes the right decisions at all levels in the organization is critically important to Operational Risks such as fires, explosions, leaks and spills, and fatalities. Publications by Andrew Hopkins on the Texas City Refinery explosion and the Macondo well blowout, as well as Chemical Safety Board disaster reports, all agree that the ability of an organization to learn from their and others’ mistakes to improve risk control is one of the keys to prevention.

Organizations that don’t have a culture of learning from mistakes – or learning from information and expertise at the front line – increase enterprise risk. At the same time, rank-and-file employees often have greater insight into potential risks than senior leaders, who are far removed from most Operational Risks due to the nature of their positions.

What is your risk control culture? And how open, transparent and honest is your organization in the identification, analysis and mitigation of risk? The future of your people, your shareholder value and your business is at stake.
