Renee Ramthun, CSP, CHST, Director of the Jordan Foster Construction Environmental Health & Safety Department, was recently selected as a member of the ANSI/ASSE Z16 Standards Committee.

This new committee will develop a standard approach to broaden the use of metrics to track employee injury/illness statistics, utilize leading indicators to measure management effectiveness in reducing risk in the workplace, and use financial terms to speak the language of business in addressing property loss and general liability.

Ms. Ramthun’s membership in the Z16 Standards Committee demonstrates a proactive role on the part of Jordan Foster to improve safety performance, and cause-and-effect reporting that goes beyond simple lost-time indicators.

While record keeping is a requirement of OSHA, the American Society of Safety Engineers is endeavoring to bring a greater understanding of how improved safety performance affects business profitability through this new committee.
