Webinar on Ethics in EHS

Online Event



There are many forms of ethical behavior, and it is good to know what they are when performing the required tasks of the EHS function.

This session discusses those forms, plus outlines situations in which ethics play an important part of decision making, both from a professional and a personal perspective. The session also covers situations that the participants have experienced (without giving away names of people or organizations), and the way they were handled and what the results or consequences were. The session also covers a "value system".

Why should you Attend: 

The question of professional ethics is a constant element of the EHS practitioner's world. The function of safety, health or environment all have grey areas that need to be transformed into black or white, and the only way to do that is to operate from a value system based on ethical principles.

This presentation will provide a framework for establishing or reinforcing a code of ethics within the individual who is exposed to those "grey areas" in the workplace and at home. 
We define what an Ethic is, and why we:

  • Put it in writing
  • The legal implications
  • Why do I need it

Most of us know the difference between:

  • Telling the truth and telling a lie
  • That honesty and integrity is important
  • We are good people
  • We work hard
  • We try hard
  • We learn from our mistakes
  • We want to "fit in", succeed, be accepted
  • The "fork in the road" moment and which fork we take that makes a difference in our lives

  • A definition of what an ethic is
  • Where ethics come from
  • How we obtain the ethic thought process
  • Sharing stories and examples of situations where ethics was an issue
  • A discussion of what "right" and "wrong" is and the phenomenon of "shades of grey"

  • The understanding of what elements are involved when deciding if ethics are involved
  • What issues cloud the issue
