The company announcement has been made, the press release published, and the personal notice made to his social network; now, Vinay Nair shares why he came to Intelex, a leading provider of Environmental, Health & Safety and Quality Management (EHSQ) software, and how the mission of the company and its customers aligns with his own personal beliefs.
Vinay, tell us about your introduction to Intelex and the EHSQ industry.
When I was first approached about the Senior Vice President position at Intelex, I was surprised to say I was unaware of the company and knew very little about the EHSQ market. Having been an analyst that had covered the Canadian Enterprise Applications market, I prided myself on knowing the key players in the country. All this time, Intelex had grown into a formidable SaaS company right in the heart of Toronto and I missed it. But once I was introduced … Read more...

Serious Injury Prevention – S is for Subjective
In Measuring Safety Part, 1 we reviewed the drawbacks of focusing solely on the measurement of safety outcomes absent understanding and tracking operational processes and events that are predictive of a safe workplace. In Part 2 of the series, we dove deeper into the implications of this thinking by reviewing “Serious Injury Fatality” (SIF). In this Part 3, we look at the subjective nature of serious injury and fatality prevention recording and whether SIF is indeed the better approach to take.
Building a SIF Safety Triangle addresses previous serious safety prevention framework shortcomings, but it also introduces new issues. Our next question: Who decides upon the categorization of processes and events that have the potential for serious injury and fatality? Also, how is this categorization done?
It seems to be relatively easy to define some categories that separate SIF from the non-SIF … Read more...

On March 31, 2017, I sat down with EHSQ Community member Faustino Martinez, a V.P of EHS, to hear his thoughts on how using leading indicators in EHSQ is transforming workplace safety in business.
In several of our recent community open discussions we have been learning from our members the Leading Indicators they are using to benchmark their safety data, such as near misses, and unsafe conditions.
During our interview conversation, Faustino shared his view that part of the key to success is identifying the right leading indicators that will strengthen your own organization’s management system. He stated to look at it like an “iceberg”. Often we only see 10% of what is happening when we look at lagging indicators. It is really the last minute view which means you have no opportunity to gain actionable proactive insights.
In his experiences, the secret to preventing incidents and accidents is to … Read more...
