How Transit Agencies Can Implement the FTA’s Safety Management System

Train Station 2

In a recent blog post, we highlighted key aspects relating to the Public Transportation Safety Program.

In this post, we will take a closer look at the Safety Management System (SMS) approach outlined in the FTA’s proposed rule.

The SMS approach is intended to help define internal processes and ensure that each public transportation agency, regardless of size or service environment, has the adequate organizational structures, accountabilities, policies, and procedures in place to effectively manage and mitigate safety events. In proposing a SMS approach, the FTA hopes to provide a set of decision-making tools that will help transit agencies prioritize and integrate safety into all aspects of the transit system’s activities, from planning to design, to construction, to operations, and to maintenance.

The proposed FTA rule would require any public transportation system receiving federal funding to implement SMS. –Tweet This!

This approach consists of four main pillars:… Read more...

Intelex Gives Back – May 2016 Update

The Intelex Gives Back Committee is focused on giving back to society in meaningful and impactful ways. The month of May saw the launch of a partnership with Canadian Blood Services as well as a five day campaign to raise funds for Fort McMurray.

Due to our world-class medical facilities, Toronto has a greater demand for blood than anywhere in Canada, but only 3% of the Canadian population donates on a regular basis. Intelex has formed a partnership with Canadian Blood Services (CBS) to ensure Intelexians are given time every quarter to head down the street and donate. With our first event being held last week, CBS received 50 pints which allowed them to exceed their daily quota of 44 pints per day. CBS has expressed their gratitude toward this initiative and we are looking forward to this partnership moving forward. Learn more about the people Intelexians are helping hereRead more...

Using Leading Indicators to Predict Safety Performance

Leading Indicators to Predict Safety Performance

Dr. Vince Marchesani is a guest contributor and a member of the Intelex Community. 

Leading indicators have been used for years to predict the future. Meteorologists use barometric pressure to predict the weather, politicians use polls to inform their campaign strategies and doctors use elevated body temperature as an indicator of patient health. Therefore, the use of leading indicators to predict future safety performance is a logical next step in successfully improving safety measurement, management and most importantly performance.  The impact of using leading safety indicators to predict injuries is similar in magnitude to the impact experienced in safety with the introduction of behavioral safety.

Leading indicators are accidents or events that almost happened. They are the measurement of actions, activities or incidents that do not result in injuries. While the use of safety leading indicators continues to gain momentum, for the most part people are not certain what to … Read more...

Leadership in EHS: Intelex’s presence at the 2016 Verdantix Summit

Calendar_1

EHS software is powerless if employees don’t adapt their behavior. Facilitating this change is one of many best practices Intelex Technologies will share at the 2016 Verdantix Summit happening May 16-18 in Chicago.

As a sponsor, Intelex will be presenting a workshop on driving behavioral change by integrating EHS and operations systems. The session will be hosted by Laura Scott, Environmental Manager at NRG Energy. NRG is one of America’s largest power companies, a leader in green energy, and a valued Intelex client. Laura will be discussing how Intelex’s software allowed NRG to build a more robust system of environmental compliance, allowing NRG to track environmental key performance indicators and ultimately helping NRG to transform its level of compliance between 2011 and 2015. Having achieved these results across a company of 10,000 employees, Laura is well-qualified to speak about the difference Intelex’s software has made.

3 Things Overheard at the 2016 Petroleum Safety Conference

Banff Centre

Last week, the ENFORM Petroleum Safety Conference (PSC) brought oil and gas safety professionals together once again to connect with each other in beautiful Banff. Held once a year, the conference draws hundreds of participants and vendors with one purpose in mind: honoring the moral – and legal – obligation of ensuring employee safety in the oil and gas industry. Presentation topics ranged from cultivating safety culture to the challenges of addressing human error in safety programs, leaving everyone in attendance with lots of inspiration and food for thought. It’s a terrific conference to attend, made only more spectacular by the backdrop of the Rocky mountains.

I had the opportunity to attend this conference for the second year and to talk with many attendees. While everyone there had interesting stories and a unique perspective to share on the state of safety and the oil industry, I heard three common themes:
