SUNRISE, Fla., Sept. 22, 2015 – ProcessMAP Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based Health & Safety and Environment (HSE) software solutions, held its first thought leadership executive forum in partnership with the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), the world’s oldest and largest professional safety organization and Johnson Controls, a global diversified technology and industrial leader, on August 26, 2015.
The by-invitation forum was held at the Johnson Controls International plant at Agua Fria Industrial Park in Monterrey. An impressive line-up of speakers from some of today’s most prominent global brands, including Johnson Controls, Heineken, USG, ASSE and ProcessMAP provided insights on critical health and safety issues facing companies in Mexico.
“The ASSE-JCI-ProcessMAP event played an important role in best practice sharing, networking among professionals, and learning,” said Carlos Mendoza, Director of Human Resources at Villacero. We should consider planning other events like this in the future.”
The content-rich program included topics, such as:
- From Reactive to Predictive: The Future Direction of Health and Safety
- The Importance of Leadership in EHS Strategy & Execution at Johnson Controls
- Advancing Professional Growth through the ASSE
- Leveraging Mobile Audits to Drive Productivity, Efficiency, and Compliance
- The State of Health and Safety in Latin America
- USG Case Study: Connecting the Dots – Information Management in Health and Safety
“As companies realize the detrimental effects of unsafe worker conditions on productivity and profitability, health and safety is becoming an increasingly critical function within companies,” said Alex Lima, executive vice president of Latin America at ProcessMAP. “The overwhelmingly positive response to this event underscores the need for best-in-class technology solutions among EHS leaders in Latin America. We were honored to collaborate with ASSE and Johnson Controls to meet this growing need in the region.”
“The event provided Monterrey’s business leaders with insight into the future of the industry and the role that health and safety will play in a company’s success,” said Elizabeth Castellanos, president of ASSE’s Member Section in Mexico and manager of Safety, Health, and Environment at Heineken. “By expanding ASSE’s presence in Mexico through this forum and future networking events, health and safety leaders will have access to the professional development resources they need to succeed.”
Building off the momentum of this event, ProcessMAP, ASSE and local companies in the region are planning a series of events, the first of which is slated for mid-November in Monterrey, Mexico. For information on upcoming forums in Mexico, please send inquiries to email@example.com.
