Leading organisations with catastrophic H&S risks

Executive site visit

This event is an opportunity to get first-hand insights into how other Forum CEOs are leading the management of catastrophic health and safety risks in their businesses. 

It will take place at Port Taranaki and Liquigas in New Plymouth, where the CEOs of these organisations, Guy Roper and Albert de Geest, will discuss how they are managing catastrophic risks. This includes the challenges of managing catastrophic risks across multiple PCBUs.

The event will also feature a facilitated discussion led by Craig Marriot, GM Health, Safety, Environment and Quality at First Gas. Craig spent almost half a year in 2018 as the GM of WorkSafe’s High Hazards group (Acting), and has previously worked in a range of high hazard environments, including nuclear.  

This extended site visit is an opportunity to gain real insights into how others are tackling the challenges of managing catastrophic risks.

The nature of the event means it will be limited to 8-10 CEOs. However, CEOs who attend are encouraged to bring the member of their leadership team who is responsible for managing catastrophic risks.  This will support them to bring insights from the day back into their organisations.
