- ASSP CWC December Membership Meeting 2019
December 12, 2019
11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Topic: Safety Accountability
Speaker: Manish Gooneratne, Safety Manager for Vigilant’s team of safety professionals providing service in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and parts of Montana and Northern California.
Safety Accountability: Leading safety cultures utilize comprehensive safety accountability systems to help supervisors and management focus on prevention rather than “fire fighting” and reacting to injuries. This is a fundamental indicator of quality safety accountability systems and the best practices they follow. A company’s ability to balance employee responsibilities and the consequences of their actions is ultimately balanced on accountability. This presentation will teach you the differences between responsibly, accountability and consequences, and how to follow 5 steps to establishing better accountability at your company and on the production floor each day.
Manish Gooneratne: With a degree in Occupational Safety and Health and 20+ years of experience in the field, Manish Gooneratne has had increasing roles such as safety engineer, safety administrator, corporate safety manager, regional safety manager and safety consultant. Most of Manish’s work experience is in manufacturing from aviation assembly lines in Kansas to cheese and ice cream manufacturing in Oregon. Manish is always eager to help others and is privileged to do so in his current role as Safety Manager at Vigilant in Tigard, OR serving members in the Pacific Northwest.
