Date Feb 11, 2016
Time 10:00 am
Cost $150.00
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"
  • The moment of truth and I'm in the middle
  • Doctors
  • Lawyers
  • Engineers
  • Safety practitioners
  • Accountants
  • Military
  • Professionals in all walks of life
Everyone has a code of ethics - but what do they mean? 
I will share MY story with you as a part of this presentation. From my perspective.
  • It was not fun
  • It refined me
  • It helped to shape my children's character
  • It was worth it
  • An ethic can be "right" or it can be "wrong." The moment of truth comes when pressure comes from
  • A supervisor
  • A co-worker
  • A friend
  • A relative
  • From within ourselves
Do we see things as black or white? 
There are four questions we need to ask ourselves for ethical clarity
  • Is it the truth
  • Is it fair to all
  • Is it free from harm
  • Am I proud to do it
An erosion of standards leads to erosion of values. This discussion is about our "core values" and how they interact with our ethics.

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
Areas Covered in the Session:
  • 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"
  • How we respond to pressure to get along with people
  • What gets in the way of ethical choices
  • The understanding of what elements are involved when deciding if ethics are involved
  • What issues cloud the issue
  • The four questions for ethical clarity
  • The erosion of standards
  • The erosion of ethics
  • How to maintain your "ethics compass"
