Speaker: Lynn McIntosh – Consultant, EHSE Management Solutions, LLC – Lynn McIntosh is a leader developing, implementing, and sustaining EHS&E management systems. Over the past 30 plus years she has served in a variety of Environmental, Health, Safety, and Energy positions working to help improve environmental health safety and energy performance.
Lynn believes in the power of the management system to improve environmental, health, safety, and energy performance. Clients value her experience, collaborative approach and ability to complete tasks, and meet rigorous deadlines. Most organizations are challenged with turnover and less than perfect succession planning within the EHS&E business process. The management system whether certified or not, provides the foundation for the EHS&E functions, and can substantially support the organization as it can rely on the system.
Early in her career, Lynn understood successful EHS&E management is based on the principle of plan what you do, do what you plan. Many organizations rely on reactive tools and miss planning plus data analysis to focus where improvement and control is required.
Lynn has led or assisted hundreds of clients through the management system process for environmental, health and safety, and energy management systems. She uses the Plan Do Check Act cycle to bring structure and control, assign roles and responsibilities, and give leadership an organized means to make decisions, and measure improvement. She has used this process with automotive clients, truck and bus manufacturers, agriculture and construction equipment manufacturers, mining industry, food manufacturing and distributors, heavy steel, plastics manufacturers, among others.
