Edward Ballo was the Director of ETNEHS for a very large cosmetics manufacturing site. The site generated over 250 million products per year. The site had a very aggressive environmental program that focused on waste, CO2 and water reduction.
The primary occupational safety and health focus areas were lockout/Tagout, powered industrial trucks, contractor and temporary employee safety, ergonomics, respirable air and noise. A validation engineer reviewed over a thousand pieces of equipment within a two year period, ensuring that EHS change management was performed in a safe manner. Behavioral safety programs, with leading safety indicators, were used to determine the buy in and maturity of the program.
Another theme that the site used to pursue world class safety performance was the Bradley curve. Employee involvement was an expectation of working at this facility. Security improvements were made in the form of personnel and infrastructure changes.
