ROIa™ demonstrates financial return of HSE risk reduction expenses in terms of
- A reasonable-case expected loss,
- Maximum expected (or catastrophic)
- The cost of generating new profits needed to recover the cost of an HSE loss.
ROIa™ utilizes existing financial data along with frequency and severity data obtained through HSE risk assessment processes, then benchmarks that exposure information against varying sets of cost data most relevant to client organizations. This produces ROI information for HSE management costs in the context of internally-credible financial values, risk management and revenue/profit generation benchmarks.
“The current trend in HSE is toward a more thorough integration with risk management fuctions or internal audit departments. These are the groups that are charged with implementation of Enterprise Risk Management frameworks, such as COSO,” said Mr. Lawrence Heim, Director at Elm.
“Further, current economic conditions dictate that companies spend their money wisely,” Heim continued. “ROIa™, by blending client-specific financial and HSE loss data, external professional experience and tradititional risk management concepts, demonstrates the economic value of HSE risk reduction expenses and where improvements may be made.”
Elm recently presented on ROIa™ at the April 2009 Spring meeting of The Auditing Roundtable, the national trade association of environmental, health and safety auditing professionals. This presentation can be viewed at http://elmconsultinggroup.wordpress.com/
