SESHA Webinar – Risk Communication for EHS Managers
As a proud member and supporter of SESHA, KFPI would like to encourage any high-technology professionals involved in EHS, to consider participating in the upcoming SESHA Webinar in January of 2020. The topic of this webinar is Risk Communication for EHS Managers. This environmental health and safety learning opportunity will be held on January 8, 2020, at 4:00 PM EST . This Webinar will share some of the valuable knowledge and experience of Dr. Shannon Maggari from Colden Corporation.
As EH&S professional’s roles and responsibilities continue to expand, the need to effectively convey difficult and sometimes complex scientific information to various stakeholders has grown with it. All too often the strategies for communicating risk are left out of the formal EH&S curriculum and the experience is gained in the field, sometimes at great expense. Using a case study presentation format, this session will equip EH&S professional’s with a few practical tools to face some of the routine difficulties associated with communicating risk to various stakeholder groups.
Participants will learn:
- How to reconcile what the audience wants with what they need
- Key strategies for earning trust equity
- Where do communication plans fit in to your existing EH&S programs
- What communication materials can be the most effective
