3 THE PARADIGM “Safety people have their hearts in the right place but seldom understand true business objectives” Safety has the high moral groundSafety has the high moral ground No one can publicly disagree with what we represent No one can publicly disagree with what we represent But Safety people are seldom seen as true business partnersBut Safety people are seldom seen as true business partners Our requests are compared with competing business objectives Our requests are compared with competing business objectives We’re never seen as balancing Safety objectives with business reality We’re never seen as balancing Safety objectives with business reality We seldom make a credible business caseWe seldom make a credible business case

6 FINANCIAL METRICS The financial metrics are built around the concept of the: $ Time Value of Money $ $ Time Value of Money $ That is, a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow.
7 INFLATION AND DISCOUNTING Present Value An investment can be viewed in two ways—its future value or its present value. Future Value Inflation Discounting
8 Review JHSAT Recommendations & Assign Number JHSAT Overall Effectiveness Value (OE) Value Assign JHSIT Average Feasibility Value Prioritize Recommendations (OE x F) Group Recommendations By Common Theme Prepare Preliminary Safety Enhancement Plan Prepare Detailed Safety Implementation Plan Execute and Monitor Progress Of Safety Implementation Plan Initiate Top Level Safety Intervention Actions (e.g. promoting IHST, SMS, Infrastructure changes) IHST Approval U.S. JHSIT PROCESS MODEL
9 Technical Feasibility: The ability of the project to take advantage of the current state of technology in pursuing further development. 3 - Off-the-shelf technology, no development required 2 - Some development required, not currently in public use 1 - Major technology development effort required Financial Feasibility: Should consider the total cost of the implementation, including the planning process. Financial feasibility also involves the capability of the participating organizations (FAA, Manufacturers, and Airlines and Operators) to provide the appropriate funding needed to implement the project. 3 - Relatively low cost to implement 2 - Relatively medium cost to implement 1 - Relatively high cost to implement Operational Feasibility: Involves the “practicality” of the project within the context of the operating environment, including NAS, ground operations, maintenance, inspection, etc. Considers which organizations within the aviation system are impacted. 3 - Minimal change to entities within the operating environment 2 - Modest change to operating environment 1 - Major change to operating environment Schedule Feasibility: Can the project to contribute to achieving the goal in a selected timeframe? Must consider implementation schedule by project. 3 - Less than 2 years to full implementation 2 - Full implementation in 2-5 years 1 - Longer than 5 years to full implementation Regulatory Feasibility: Should be evaluated against current rules and certification process. Could be a deterrent due to a long approval process. 3 - No policy change 2 - Guidance change only (orders, handbooks, policy) 1 - Rule change

11 ROI = Net Present Value Present Value of Project Cost Present Value of Project Benefit – Present Value of Project Cost Present Value of Project Cost ROI = ROI – WHAT IS SAFETY’s PAYBACK?
12 ROHSEI Return on Health, Safety and EnvironmentalInvestment(ROHSEI) One Way To Change The Paradigm.
13 GENESIS OF ROHSEI In 1995 a taskforce of fifteen Fortune 500 companies sponsored the development of a process and supporting tool set to answer important questions such as: What safety investments should we make? What safety investments should we make? How do we know we are doing the “right things” in the “right way” How do we know we are doing the “right things” in the “right way” To which projects should we allocate our resources? To which projects should we allocate our resources? Which EHS investments create the greatest value to the organization? Which EHS investments create the greatest value to the organization? How do we demonstrate the value of our investment decisions? How do we demonstrate the value of our investment decisions? How do we demonstrate our value and justify our existence? How do we demonstrate our value and justify our existence?

15 ROHSEI offers a standardized approach to evaluating health, safety and environmental investments. WHAT ROHESI DOES
16 WHAT DOES A SAFETY GUY KNOW ABOUT FINANCE? – ROHSEI!
17 THE CHALLENGING QUESTIONS What investments should we make? Should we make the investment this year or next? How do we compare an operational investment decision to a health and safety investment decision? To which projects should we allocate our human resources?
