In this episode of the Safety On-Demand Podcast we talk with Judy Mieding of *GKN Sinter Metals. Judy is a health, safety and environmental (HSE) manager and was instrumental in helping GKN's five Wisconsin plants certify under OHSAS 18001.
GKN Sinter Metals is the world's leading producer of precision powder metal (P/M) components.
OHSAS 18001 is an international occupational health and safety standard designed to help organizations manage and control health and safety practices. It's a proactive approach to finding, fixing, and preventing safety hazards and was designed to work with ISO standards 14001 and 9000. The 18001 mantra is "Plan, Do, Check, Act".
This program is not just for safety managers or organizations looking to certify under OHSAS 18001. Judy, as you will hear, is an inspiring safety professional with lots of great ideas about championing safety in an organization and how to motivate others to do their best. She's also a team player who sees her role as just a small part of the big program.
In this episode, she shares her secrets to a great meeting, how to provide value to your company by engaging with your community, and why it's important to build relationships with your local health care providers.
