Jeffery Rezin, President of Rezin Inc.
Often late at night, a spill, an accident, or a momentary lapse in an otherwise routine schedule can result in an environmental or safety disaster. Disasters can be gauged from mild to catastrophic. In either case, they result in a consumption of time and resources to respond, correct, and clean-up. Environmental and Safety managers are often called to coordinate the follow-up to these disasters. People are unhappy or worse yet, hurt. Money is spent, time is lost. What good can come from this?
This was the routine I was used to in my early days working with heavy industry. It was not unusual to get calls in the middle of the night, on weekends, and even in some cases, when I was actually scheduled to be at a site just by chance. Responding effectively in an emergency is a good trait for an environmental/safety manager to possess. Better yet however, is to figure out ways to keep these occurrences from happening in the first place.
I was tired of responding to incidents as a part of my regular routine. It became abundantly clear that if something didn’t change, this would be my career path…incident occurs, I respond…over and over again. Investigations into the cause of the incident were helpful, but a dramatic shift in philosophy was needed in order to change this paradigm.
At Rezin Inc., our attempt is to find the causes of the incidents and eliminate them. We can, and do, respond to emergencies and effectively remediate whatever problem has occurred. But we don’t stop there. Whenever possible, we examine the causes of the situation and offer solutions to prevent reoccurrences. Business thrives on productivity. We understand that even effective environmental and safety management of incidents is secondary to keeping the problem from occurring in the first place.
Good management practices, including environmental management systems and profound safety training initiatives is the cost effective solution. Responsible companies need to look at the frequency of incidents and initiate procedures to eliminate them! Rezin Inc. has implemented strategies that have accomplishments that have resulted in award winning programs.
