US-based financial services company

We developed a new global safety management system that was in-line with internationally recognized standards and could easily be implemented around the world, incorporating world class training programs and mechanisms for continuous improvement.

The Challenge

Following a global safety audit, a US-based financial services company was determined to be out of compliance with local regulations for health and safety training and reporting at its European and Asia-Pacific locations. The business had been unaware of its exposure to millions of dollars in potential fines and penalties, so turned to the Shirley Parsons team in Boston to provide immediate tactical support and a long-term solution that would ensure ongoing compliance.

Our Approach

One of our in-house EHS experts was assigned immediately got to work prioritizing elements of our client’s global safety program that urgently needed to be addressed. We developed a new global safety management system that was in-line with internationally recognized standards and could easily be implemented around the world, incorporating world class training programs and mechanisms for continuous improvement.

The Result

Within 4 months of undertaking the project, all noncompliance issues that could have led to fines or penalties had been successfully closed out, and a global safety committee had been established to provide ongoing oversight of the program. Despite working in a lower risk sector, the company is now going above and beyond to protect the health and safety of its employees at a time when it is most needed.
