How do executives in the health and safety industry lead their operations teams through times of complexity and change?
Sheryl Corrigan, Director of EH&S for Koch Industries, shared both her team’s challenges and philosophy of adaptation during her keynote speech at the recent Next Generation HSE Summit.
Sheryl Corrigan: “Everyday I’ve got brilliant engineers at our refineries, at our pulp and paper mills, coming up with new and better ways to collect data…To bring more inputs into the workplace and the manufacturing floor…More data, new transmitters, new plant information systems, spreadsheets, advanced analytics – it’s the age of analytics, right? – and all I can think of is, Okay, this is all really, really good stuff, but how is an operator going to figure out what is really important and what’s just noise unless someone helps them adapt?
So I’m here to plant an idea with everyone in the room, and that is:
As leaders, one of our most important jobs – if not the most important job – is to help our teams adapt and evolve into high reliability organizations. Because all this technology is not going to stop; it’s just going to keep coming at us. And our teams – the people – have to be able to work with it, use it, make it a competitive advantage and move forward”.
